If you have a special regimen, there’s no reason why you should abandon it for the sake of a couple of days living in a totally different environment. With a little planning and the right ingredients, you can create delicious meals, especially when it comes to dinner when you want to enjoy the evening without spending too much time cooking. Find here 25 healthy camping dinner ideas.

How to Plan for Healthy Camping Dinners

We all know there is nothing more stressful than planning a camping trip. What do you need to bring? Do you have all the right items? How are you going to get there? And most importantly, what are you going to eat?

Vegetarian dinner ideas

When planning your healthy camping dinners, it’s important to consider your current diet. For example, some will need to plan special dishes to create vegan camping meals or even keto meals for their trip. The first thing is to consider everything you normally eat and then think about how to adapt it to the outside world.

Once you figure out what you need, get some ingredients chopped, pre-cooked, and create your special sauces and spices so that when it’s time to pack, you’ve already saved some time getting everything ready. Store them in quality meal-prep containers and hit the road to keep everything fresh and tasty.

We know this is easier said than done. That’s why we bring you some great ideas to get things done fast while giving your body the nutrients it needs to enjoy the view. Before talking about them, let’s take a look at some important equipment you should take when going camping and cooking.

Cooking Tips for Healthy Camping Dinners

Adapting your routine to the outdoors isn’t easy, especially if you live in the comforts of the city. Fortunately, many tools can help you create the best healthy camping dinners without much effort. We recommend the following tips for your next camping trip:

Pack a Good Camping Stove

Being out in the wild, it’s important to cook your meals well. Sure, the typical campfire can roast marshmallows and help you make some good s’mores, but it’s best to have the necessary cooking equipment when it comes to healthy food.

In such cases, a portable gas stove is best. This wonderful equipment has an automatic shut-off device when the gas pressure is low, assuring you maximum protection. Its 3.1 lb weight makes it wonderful to take with you on those long camping trips where you want to cook as you do at home. All you need is a butane canister, and you’re ready to make delicious healthy camping dinners.

Make Meals You are Familiar With

How to Plan for Healthy Camping Dinners

Many of us go camping to get a break from the routine and pause for a moment. Still, that doesn’t mean your diet should change. When it’s time to eat, it’s best to stick with what’s familiar to save planning time and enjoy more of our time outdoors. Once you feel more comfortable, you can add little twists to your recipes to create delicious new dishes.

Find out What Amenities Will be Available

Some camping places have grills, sinks, and even offer some utensil sets for campers. However, if you’re into camping with no other tools than your own, you may need to take a look at all the things you must take with you.

When cooking, a sharp knife makes a difference between a tasty dinner and a messy one. Getting a camping utensil set will help you get the best results with just a few, yet essential, tools. 

Pack Your Basics

Some of us can’t make it without a bit of spice, while others always recur to the classic PB & J sandwich. Take with you all the essentials that can’t leave your kitchen, like salt and pepper, canned foods, or rice. Analyze what you currently have and make sure you take it with you, as you’ll most likely use these ingredients for some, if not all, of the following recipes.

BBQ Tofu Bites

Whether you’re vegan or a curious foodie, these BBQ tofu bites will absolutely delight you. While this versatile ingredient might seem a little too hard to work with, choosing the right kind of tofu will bring you a delightful meal that helps you stay healthy.

If you’re new to tofu, we recommend using an extra-firm one. This way, it won’t absorb as much moisture and won’t have a soft texture, which not many people are fond of. 


  • 1 package extra-firm tofu
  • 1 tablespoon barbecue sauce
  • Olive oil

To properly begin this recipe, press tofu for 30 minutes. Once it has drained, cut into thin slices. Then, pour barbecue sauce into a saucepan. Place your tofu in the dish and carefully stir to coat the tofu. Let it marinate for 30 minutes.

Heat a skillet over medium heat and place your tofu, turning occasionally. Don’t discard the barbecue sauce. Brush with additional sauce when needed and cook until the tofu is browned on the edges. Then, toss it in the remaining sauce and serve.
