TIPS FOR PACKING AND STORING NO-COOK MEALS
When camping, we always recommend to employ Leave No Trace rules, especially with food and plastic wrap. In order to make as little mess as possible, here are our recommendations for packing and storage:
Use Lightweight, Compact Packaging
Pack your no-cook meals in airtight containers to keep them fresh and prevent them from getting crushed during transportation.
Keep Perishable Items In A Cooler With Ice
Store yogurt, cheese, meat, and other items in a cooler to keep cool and safe. Make sure you have enough ice. Consider freezing some items like water bottles or packs of juice to use as extra ice packs. Regularly drain your cooler of melting liquids. Most importantly: don’t forget to eat or use all your items, otherwise you might end up with a smelly cooler.
Store Food In A Secure Location To Avoid Attracting Wildlife
Research your camping location and potential rules for food storage. Some campsites and parks require specific food storage, such as a bear-proof container. Keep your food — even your food in a cooler — in your car and lock your car whenever you’re away from the campsite. Another option is to store food in a bag and hang it in a tree so it can be difficult to access.
Mealtime made simple
No-cook camping meals can provide a convenient and enjoyable way to eat while enjoying the great outdoors. Not only are they easy to prepare and require minimal equipment, but they also save time and effort, allowing you to focus on other activities during your camping trip.
Whether you are a seasoned camper or a beginner, no-cook camping meals are a great way to simplify your meal planning and ensure that you have delicious and satisfying meals on your next camping adventure.
