So here are 9 easy to make meals that are truly healthy for you to eat on your next camping trip! If you need basic utensils and something to cook with, click here for a great option for both!
1). A Veggie Tray –
Although a veggie tray may seem bland or plain, it’s a healthy option for a meal when you’re camping. Believe it or not, a veggie tray can be a full meal or a side dish. We have done this personally and they’re filling and super healthy. You can add more than just ranch as well. It may seem weird but we sometimes use honey mustard. You don’t have to, this is just an example, don’t judge us! So bring a veggie tray next time you go camping.
2). Scrambled eggs –
Eggs are super healthy for you and contain a lot of essential vitamins and minerals, especially protein. All you need is a pot, a pan, or skillet, some people even use aluminum foil. Scrambled eggs are an excellent option for a healthy quick, and easy meal. So bring some eggs next time you go camping, just make sure and bring a cooler because spoiled eggs are not so good for you. Just a little humor for you!

Sandwiches are also easy to make and you can add whatever you want to them. we sometimes will make a ham sandwich and roast it over the fire for a little bit, then you have a crispy ham sandwich!

Oatmeal is another great option for a healthy camping meal for breakfast, lunch, and dinner if you’re on a budget. Cheap, easy to make and usually no cooking is even involved in making oatmeal.
