- Hard boiled eggs (cooked at home before we go, stored in their shells in the ice chest)
- Cereal or granola
- Muffins (made at home)
- Yogurt (mix with some honey at home and store in individual serving size containers)
- Grape and apple juice
Lunch we usually take with us while we are hiking, so it has to be able to be kept in a pack without ice.
- Beef Jerky, this recipe has become one of our very favorites!
- Grapes (I prewash them and store them in a ziploc bag with a paper towel, keep them in the cooler until time to pack them)
We do like to have a hot dinner, if possible. Sometimes with all the kids and gear we don't have room for our stove. In that case we take cold pizza and/or salads. Most of these dinners I have to leave out the potatoes or modify to make SCD friendly. Some ideas are:
- Breakfast for dinner (scrambled eggs, gf pancakes, sausage, bacon, hash browns)
- Escalante Chicken (stir fry chicken pieces with carrots, celery, garlic, salt and pepper, and potatoes in the dutch oven). I make mine in a separate pan with no potatoes.
- Hamburgers (lettuce leaves for buns on the gf/scd versions)
- Tin foil dinners with chicken, carrots, celery, potatoes, and jalepeno peppers)
- Cold Roasted Chicken shish-ka-bobs re-heated on sticks over the fire (I actually haven't tried this one yet but I plan to on our next trip)
If you like to camp don't let the fact that you can't have a s'more keep you from going. You can stay on your diet, feel good and camp with your family. Focus on the fun, not the food!
