It’s hard when you have food sensitivities and you go camping. Let’s face it, Jiffy Pop, marshmallows, hot dogs and white buns are probably not something you can eat. Here are a couple of ideas for your next camping trip.
Prepare your fruit and vegetable trays ahead of time *try to buy local, it’s cheaper, healthier and you support local farmers.
Prepare your potatoes at home. You can avoid the store bought hash browns with all of those added ingredients like corn and wheat by boiling potatoes until they are soft, cutting them into slices and adding whatever you like on top. Wrap them in tinfoil and you can enjoy easily.
Prepare your favourite gluten free flour mix ahead of time. Bring it along and mix it in with the wet ingredients. This will save you time and space.
Bring your own bread. We don’t have the option to buy bread (or usually borrow from friends) when we are out camping. This Rudi’s bread is gluten/corn free and tastes really good toasted. *It does come frozen.
Make your own popsicles. These popsicles were made from chocolate almond milk, and the other from organic root beer. This way the girls could have something sweet without food dye and corn syrup.
A new twist on s’mores. Kinnikinnick makes a delicious gluten/dairy/corn free graham cracker that cooks nicely with dark chocolate (or in this case rice chocolate) and a sliced banana. Wrap it in tinfoil and bake over the fire. It’s a nice treat when you can’t have marshmallows that contain of corn and sugar.
