We are taking our children camping this summer for five days. We will be staying in a trailer with a fridge that is fairly small. I believe there is a small freezer, microwave, barbecue, and tiny propane stove, no oven. Space for cold food will be somewhat limited. Last year, I had no meal planning issues because I was not "dieting" I really want to stay on plan (1400-1500 cals) during this trip with a few treats along the way. I am not actually planning on calorie counting but I will be mindful of my foods and estimate each day. I would love some meal ideas that are simple to make don't require too many ingredients and would be "kid friendly". Breakfast is not an issue as I usually have toast and tea. Lunches and dinners will need some thought and planning.
So far I have a couple dinner ideas:
Our favorite low fat burgers (170 cals per patty) with barbecued potatoes
Taco night with ground chicken prepared ahead and microwavable brown rice
Several servings of tossed salad stored in a "green bag"
I would love to hear your ideas of make ahead items and easy camping recipes. I am also wondering what lower calorie items can be roasted on a stick at a campfire. I don't think I will be having too many marshmallows and hotdogs
