Camping is one of the most popular activities in the world today.

Many a fan never hesitates to look for the right opportunities to get away and enjoy the goodness of nature. When camping though, it is vital to be well-prepared because this is the sure way to have a ball and enjoy your stay.

Many people often wonder what to eat while out in the wild. This article shows you great ideas that are used by many campers.


The first thing you need is plenty of energy to get you strong enough to enjoy the great outdoors. While staying at your campsite, there are great energy sources in many different recipes. Here are some examples:

Consider "bird seed" energy bars. There are many varieties of seeds that you can use to make sure that your energy levels are kept up. You can get sunflower, flax, sesame and a host of other kinds of seeds for your adventure. You can also take with you some rolled oats, wheat germs, chocolate chips, honey, brown sugar and many others. It is really exciting just thinking about the kinds of foods that you can enjoy.

If you've chosen to stay at one of the many uk campsites with fishing, and you're allowed to keep your catch, fish make an excellent meal, and can be cooked easily - just wrap them in foil with some butter, sprinkle with herbs, and put them in the embers of a camp fire to cook. Delicious! This only works if you're good at fishing though - so perhaps you should have a backup plan in case the fish aren't biting!

Food cooked outdoors over a camp fire always tastes better than food cooked in the kitchen on the stove top - and that applies to breakfast as much as any other meal, so breakfast time can be magical as you prepare delicious savoury meals.

Camping calls for a hearty breakfast and nothing does it better than bacon and eggs cooked over the fire. You can even add potatoes to the recipe and create your own feast in the bush. This is the perfect meal to start the day, and to ensure you have plenty of energy for the day ahead.

Another idea for great camp site recipes is Graham crackers with melted marshmallows. As you might know, camping is never complete without marshmallows!

Toasting marshmallows around a real camp fire is always great fun. Just don't forget to take some sticks to toast them with!

As you go out and enjoy the countryside, why not take some healthy "trail mix" with you? This consists of fruits, seeds and nuts mixed together - it's a real treat when you've been walking for hours. There's loads of variations to choose from - ideal for a healthy snack.
