We’ve got you covered. Healthy habits are just as important on-the-go as they are at home. So we put together this roundup of hearty, camping-friendly recipes and meal ideas to help you curb the cravings and skip the drive-thru on your next RV road trip. Let’s get cooking!

Homemade Cornmeal Griddle Pancakes
As they say, ‘breakfast is the most important meal of the day’. So why not make it easy on yourself and prep and pack a mason jar of homemade cornmeal griddle pancake mix before you hit the road. Then all you have to do when you rise and shine at the campsite is cook up a stack of these homemade flapjacks on the campfire griddle. Your future self will thank you!

BBQ Carrot Dogs
Just because you’re looking to take the healthy route doesn’t mean that food can’t be fun. These vegan BBQ carrot dogs are just the ticket! An inventive spin on the traditional hot dog, this simple recipe is a crowd-pleaser and a great way to get the kids (and kids at heart) excited about eating their veggies.

Pan-Roasted Campfire Veggies
Eat the rainbow! How about a cast-iron skillet full of colourful veggies cooking over the campfire? This easypeasy recipe for pan-roasted campfire veggies is definitely one to add to your next camping trip meal plan.

Lemon-Garlic Shrimp & Vegetables
Stir-fry or steamed, these lemon-garlic shrimp and vegetables make for an easy, healthy meal for your RV crew. If shrimp isn’t your thing, swap out the protein for chicken or tofu.

Peanut Butter & Jelly Bars
Sweet and salty – you get the best of both worlds with these make-ahead peanut butter and jelly bars. These portable snacks pack well in your backpack on a hike, bike or day at the beach, or they make for a quick, nutritious bite to munch on during those long drives in the RV.

Trail Mix Cookies
A handful of hearty trail mix sure does hit the spot when those pesky hangry spells sneak up on you! A handful of cookies does, too. That’s why we think a batch of these make-ahead trail mix cookies are the perfect addition to your road trip snack pack! Delicious.
