Meals for Camping: Snacks

  • by

So, here’s the final installment of the Meals for Camping series! Hope you got some ideas for meals of your own. This week we’re going to talk about one of the best things about being in nature…SNACKS!

If you’re being outdoorsy and need snack ideas, you’re with the right girl. I’m a snacker, for reals. Breakfast, Lunch, and/or Supper got you stumped? Find ideas for those here.

Trail Mix

Whether you prefer to buy it at the store or make your own, trail mix is a delicious way to get some energy. It’s super customizable and won’t add much weight to your bag. Since I can’t do many peanuts, I usually make mine with almonds, cashews, dark chocolate chips, and some type of dried fruit. I can’t do cranberries (sad day) and I have an unfortunate aversion to raisins (trust me, you really don’t want to know what brought that on…), so I just choose one of the many options that could fit and throw it in the bag and shake it like Shake-N-Bake, Polaroid picture, salt shaker…whatever. Voila, tasty snack.

Apples and Almond Butter

This one is a favorite of mine. I don’t know many who can turn down apples and peanut butter. Unfortunately, my favorite food group (peanut butter) is a no go for the most part, so I use other types of nut butters, usually almond.

I have been able to keep the apples from browning and have cut them up ahead of time so it’s easier to eat. Not going to lie, I’m more likely to eat them if they’re already chopped up. If I have to cut it up when I want one I’m likely going to reach for something else. I did buy a fun and fancy apple slicer, so I have been tricking myself into putting in the effort more often.

If nut butters aren’t your thing, yogurt works too. If you’re feeling fancy, you can do sharp cheddar cheese (Granny Smith varieties only…just trust me on this one) or melt some of the chocolate and get to dipping.

Veggies and Hummus

I know I have mentioned veggies and hummus in previous posts, but it’s versatile, so….

There are so many different varieties of hummus and combos of veggies it’s hard to get tired of them. Unless you’re not a fan of hummus, then do the Midwest thing and use ranch. Get a good one though….thick for dipping.

Granola and…

Yep, that’s basically it. You can eat it by the handful, put it in yogurt, throw it in a bowl and toss some milk in it, make it into a bar, whatever suits your fancy. Granola.

Sweet Treats

You know s’mores and roasted marshmallows have to be on the list. They are always on my list of things to stick in the snack bag. I have made them with allergy friendly grahams, chocolate, and chocolate chip cookies. I’d show photos of them in all their glory, but they have gone missing.

I am also not a huge traditional marshmallow fan (unless they’re roasted), but these Dandies…I can eat them straight out of the bag. They do take a little longer to get gooey, but they are so good I don’t even care.

Crackers and…

Choose your favorite kind and favorite topping and you’re golden.

Chips and…

Salsa? Cheese dip? Plain? Put them on your sandwich for a little extra crunch? All of it.

What’s your favorite nature snacks?
