Our Annual Camping Trip
You might remember my post from last year about my first camping trip. Turns out, we loved it and the sweet friends we accompanied so much that we decided to make it a yearly event. Since I've become a seasoned camper now (HA!), I've decided that, along with photos, I'd share a few of my favorite camping recipes and ideas. I knew this year that I didn't want to fall completely away from healthy choices just because we were camping, so I did a little extra prep to make sure to take the healthy options along with us. If you're planning a trip this Spring, feel free to try out some of these! Unfortunately, because I'm a girl and I was usually too worried about food during meal times to photograph, I don't have any photos of them. You'll just have to take my word for their deliciousness.

GREEK YOGURT & CRANBERRY CHICKEN SALAD
1 SAMs Club Rotisserie Chicken (or 5-6 chicken breasts cooked)
6 Stalks Celery (finely chopped)
1 Cup Dried Cranberries
1 Cup Greek Yogurt
2 TBSP Mayo
8 Boiled Eggs
Garlic Powder, Salt, Pepper, Cayenne, Lemon Pepper
Use food processor to chop up chicken and celery. Mix all ingredients together. Enjoy!
1 Pack Xtreme Wellness Spinach Tortillas (Walmart)
2 Chicken Breasts Seasoned, Cooked, and Chopped
1 Pack Mexican Blend Shredded Cheese
1 Habernero Pepper (Finely Chopped)
Put all ingredients in tortilla and use aluminum foil to wrap and place onto fire grate. Let cook until cheese is melted and dip in Healthy Guac Dip (below).
HEALTHY GUAC DIP
1 Ripe Avocado (smashed
3-4 TBSP Greek Yogurt
4 TBSP Fresh Salsa
Lemon Pepper, Garlic powder
Mix up and enjoy along with tortilla chips, quesadillas, and fajitas!
And of course, no camping is complete without some ninja fighting. Clearly. In addition to quesadillas, I also brought some veggie and meat packed kabobs and green smoothies for breakfast in mason jars--which was a complete win. I learned from last year that the more prep I did beforehand, the more smoothly it all would go. Feel free to use any of these ideas or comment some of your own!
