Camping Food for so many different food preparations. Stir fried rice. We use or pressure cooker to make rice as a side dish for many of our meals. After a day or two, my wife will make chicken fried rice. Grilled T-bone Steak. Grilled steak can be easily made on a flat Lodge Logic cast iron griddle in minutes. We eat T-bone steaks more on our camping trips than we at home. Pan Grilled Onions & Lamb Steaks On several occasions, we dined on grilled lamb shanks and baked potatoes. This may startle you, but the best foods to take on camping trips are foods that you are most comfortable with and will enjoy eating. I don't make it a practice to learn new culinary skills while camping unless someone happens to gift us with a side of elk or fresh salmon. These kinds of exceptions are welcomed because they are rare. If you tend to eat a lot of pasta at home, then it's going to be easy to make pasta dishes while camping out. My kids really enjoy eating a special dinner like hamburgers or pizza on a camping trip because it reminds them of our weekend meals at home. Give me a cup of coffee and a bowl of fruit for breakfast and I am happy.
Don't Leave Home Without These 7 Dry Foods For Camping Dried fruit & raw nuts. Make sure that you pack plenty of raw seeds, nuts, and dried fruits for your next camping trip. Raw nuts and seeds mixed with dried fruit are a great healthy trail snack that can be eaten anytime of the day. I take a bag of mixed sun flower seeds, raisins, dried apricots, dried coconut, raw almonds, pumpkin seeds, and crushed cacao nibs. It's one of the best emergency foods to keep on hand. The shelf life is long and it requires no refrigeration. Coffee & tea. Even though coffee and tea are not food, it sure is nice to relax with a cup of your favorite hot beverage. I never deprive myself of comfort drinks and food like coffee and tea. Don't spoil your camping trip with a stop at Starbucks to get you out of your routine. Leave Starbucks and Seattle's Best for the city boys. If you are not a coffee drinker, then you will think of something else that you enjoy so much at home that you need to bring it with camping. Comfort drinks will keep you from missing home. That is if you miss home. Many people go camping to escape the hustle and bustle of their home life.
