Hiker’s energy balls
My favourite snack when I go on a hike is without doubt energy balls. They’re simple to transport, easy to eat on the trails, often better for your health, and always more environmentally friendly than overpackaged store-bought bars. I add several to a snack bag or an airtight container and savour them slowly while ambling down the trails. An energy ball snack gives me a little boost before a challenging climb!
Another chilly early morning? Wrap yourself in your eiderdown and prepare this comforting crisp for your family. It has become a go-to when I head off camping. I’m sure it’ll become a favourite of yours as well!
Thanks to a recipe prepared in advance, you will make many happy in the morning!
Anti-leftover meal dip
I love anti-waste recipes. (Or rather, I hate to waste!) Camping is no exception. Over time, I’ve come up with all kinds of recipes to make use of those leftovers taking up real estate in the fridge’s cooler compartment. Because after a few days of planned meals, there are always leftover cooked vegetables and meat. This meal dip is one such recipe, perfect for making use of everything you have left!
Gourmet grilled cheese sandwich to share
I bet this recipe will soon become one of your favourite lunches while camping. And by varying the cheeses and condiments, you’re sure to want to make it very often!
Chocolate fondue in a cone
The new number-one camping dessert (sorry, s'mores, you've just been dethroned)!
