Trim Healthy Mama Camping and Vacationing – Tasteful Tuesday
June 2, 2015
You may think when you go on vacation that you have to go off plan with Trim Healthy Mama or whatever healthy lifestyle you follow. Not true. With a little planning, you can stay on plan.
We do a lot of camping in our travel trailer, which has a small fridge and a microwave. However, you could easily utilize a cooler and a campfire, or take ready made items. Here are some foods I pack when we go camping:
Muffin in a Mug –Trim Healthy Mama– You could make muffins before you go and pack them in containers. Or if you have access to a fridge and microwave, you can pack the dry ingredients in a ziploc bag, write the instructions on the outside of the bag, and add the wet ingredients when you are ready to make the muffins.
Muffin in a Bowl – Trim Healthy Mama – You can do the same with this recipe as above except this is a lighter version so it can be eaten as a dessert rather than a meal.
Trim Healthy Pancakes or S pancakes and turkey bacon in the skillet over the campfire
Eggs cooked over the campfire
Homemade granola THM
THM Smoothies (if you can take your Ninja; I never leave home without it!) You can make packets of dry ingredients and just add the wet ingredients and/or ice.
LUNCHES and SNACKS
Sandwiches depending on whether or not you have refrigeration, you can use on plan breads and have pb or meat and cheese sandwiches.
Cold cuts and raw veggies
Yogurt and fruit
meat and veggies grilled in a foil pouch over the campfire
Pulled pork grilled or slow cooked if you have crockpot and electricity
Burgers with THM Bread in a Mug with veggies
S fried fish breaded with almond and coconut flour
Fish without breading grilled over the campfire with your choice of fruits and/or veggies
In lieu of smores, you could make Mrs. Criddle’s cookies and skinny chocolate from the book (just remember to keep it on ice).
These are all recipes you could make before leaving for your trip, or you could utilize a campfire or electricity to make them if you can keep your ingredients cold in a cooler or camper fridge until you are ready to use them. I hope these tips will help you stay on plan during your vacations. I know I’ll be using them. I’ve worked too hard to go back now!
