It’s so easy to slip into unhealthy eating while camping. I mean, who can resist that extra perfectly toasted s’more? At Patriot RV, we know that those unhealthy hot dogs and burgers are delicious for the first few days but begin to wear you down on longer trips. That’s why we’ve compiled a list of five RV-friendly healthy and easy meals to make.
For a traditional favorite with a twist, try this spaghetti with bo-cook puttanesca. It uses minimal heat to make, and you can easily use your favorite gluten-free pasta as an alternative. Add olives for a different flavor. Use your knife to crush them and push out the pits. It’s quick and easy. After a long hike in the woods, a big bowl of pasta hits the spot just right.
Breakfast for dinner is always a win. If you don’t believe me, just ask Ron Swanson. Gathered Nutrition’s super breakfast tostadas are packed with spices, protein, and carbs. Put your crockpot on before heading out for a hike or swim in the lake, and come back to your ready-made dinner. Reduce prep time by pre-making the sauce. You can also pre-cook your chicken if you don’t want to bring your crockpot.
Packed with flavor and easy to make, these chicken fajitas from Clean Eating will leave you feeling energized and ready for exploring. Check out their guacamole recipe or whip up your favorite one and bring it along. Delicious for lunch or dinner. Make this meal in a cast iron pot over a fire or an outdoor stove to reduce the smell inside your RV.
Stir-fry is always one of the quickest meals you can make. Bon Appetit’s tofu and mushroom stir-fry is vegetarian-friendly and lasts longer in the fridge because it uses tofu instead of meat. Add any of your favorite vegetables to add your twist to the recipe. Try pre-cook your rice to save time, water, and energy, or buy pre-cooked rice packs.
Thank you, cold noodles. This soba noodle salad is perfect on summer camping trips when you’d rather eat ice cream for dinner than turn on the stove. The main ingredient in soba is buckwheat. It has loads of protein to help repair muscles after long hikes. Prepare the noodles exactly as the packaging suggests to ensure perfect consistency. Pre-make the peanut butter sauce to minimize cleaning and use fresh vegetables instead of pre-cut and packed ones.
