Thank you all so much for the great ideas! I think between eggs, bars, fruits, veggies, and some clean meals I can pre-cook and freeze I'll be pretty much set...as long as I can stay away from all the beer that will be there (I make no promises!)

Fresh fruits, vegetables, brown rice, lentils, beans, oatmeal, favorite healthy cereal, homemade trail mix, rice milk (it stays fresh longer), water, nuts, seeds and your favorite spices.

The brown rice, lentils, beans, and vegetables will be the base of your lunch and dinner meals.

Oatmeal, cereal, and fresh fruit for breakfast.

Fresh fruit, vegetables, trail mix, nuts, and seeds for the car and snacks.

We were just camping earlier this month...But it's also just me and hubby. We took our favorite meats and spices along with a lot of fresh veggies and fruits. We have some great cast iron cookware that we put right on the fire. I usually cut the meat up and cook it with some olive oil, then toss in the veggies and spices. Cook it all in one pot and eat out of a bowl for dinner. You get all your protein and everything to keep you going and clean up is easy.

For breakfast, I do the same thing but use eggs, ham, and veggies (and sometimes cheese).

Since we're usually out on the hiking trails, we just carry protein bars, trail mix, and fresh fruit for lunch.

LOTS of water is definitely a necessity too.

I'm going camping also later on in June and have been thinking about how to manage. It's just me and hubby though so we're in control. I've decided to pre-plan and bring breakfasts and snacks. We'll be doing day trips though and I've researched local farmer's markets, etc so that's my dinner plan, be healthy and spontaneous.

I'd invest in a really nice cooler and fill 'er up with fruits that can stay in their skin - apples, oranges, melons, bananas... those ziploc fresh veg/fruit bags are brilliant for camping, they really help! (Not water tight though so don't let them sit in the ice water).

There are some awesome organic/low sodium dry soup mixes that you can just add to water and cook up. Lentil soup, black bean, split pea... GREAT traveling food!

I would take alot of veggies and fruits, hardboiled eggs, pita bread all grab and go essentials. Also pack oats and rice for camping, all you need to cook these is water and a pot. Best wishes and most of all enjoy your trip!

For the car, I would stock up on carrot, celery sticks, low fat granola (or make your own), PLENTY of water, and maybe a couple meal replacement bars. As far as them putting sausage into every veg dish (that made me laugh out loud), can you pick out just the vegs? How bout bringing brown rice, too? I am not sure what your camping setting will be. Maybe some harboiled eggs, too, and some light string cheese. My in laws eat the same and I am bringing my own food to grill on Memorial Day. They give me heck about not letting my small kids drink pop (not kidding) but I always bring healthy options for me and the kids to eat and drink. And my kids ALWAYS choose the healthy stuff. You will be ok, just a little planning and you will be fine!

I'm gonna post this in a few different groups so if you see it more than once that's why...Ok so I'm going to be leaving to go on vacation next month and I'll be spending 1-2 days in a car, and at least 9 days camping with my husbands family. I cannot stress heavily enough how horrible my inlaws eating habits are as far as quality of food goes. There is not a food that goes unfried or a vegetable that doesn't have sausage added to it, which really sucks because they are all home grown. I'm seriously not exaggerating it's that bad. I don't know how I'm going to survive down there because I'm sure I'm not going to have tons of extra cash to throw around on groceries. So if anyone has any suggestions on things I could make ahead for the drive or some things I could get that would really stretch out for a good number of days without killing my fun money I sure would appreciate it.
