Whether it’s the crackle of the flames, the fresh air, or the good company, there’s something about cooking (and eating) around a campfire that makes pretty much any food taste better. Over the last few months we have shared some of our favorite campfire recipes. This week we wanted to share some recipes from our healthy online friends. They incorporate ingredients like lean protein, veggies, and balanced carbs to keep you fueled from dawn to dusk—and they’ll impress your fellow campers too.
So when you’re ready to head out on your next excursion, pack up the car with your campfire grill grate, your Dutch oven, or whatever outdoor cooking gear you use. And, of course, a cooler full of everything you’ll need to pull together your favorite one of these recipes. Because your go-to camping meals are about to get a major upgrade. And if you are ready for someone to take over, our guides and chefs at Escape Adventures will treat you to some of the best cuisine on your adventure with us…
