We have all been there. There are still a couple of hours until bedtime, dinner is most definitely over, and yet… you are hungry. Not starving or anything, but just peckish enough that you would not be able to sleep, and if you tried you know you’d be heading downstairs in the wee small hours to help yourself to whatever sinful treats can be found… A lot of the most common go-to snacks such as chocolate, ice cream, and cereal contain high levels of caffeine which will keep you awake.

Now, if you work all week long and want to slip away for the long-weekend you don’t always have a ton of time to prep and cook things before hand. This is where I want to provide you some simple healthy recipes for all your camping meals, plus easy portable snacks. I have 5 breakfasts, 5 Mains, 5 Sides, 5 Snacks, and 5 Drink recipes for you below.

You can mix and match based on how much time you want to dedicate to camping food so its flexible.
