Wow, everyone. Thanks so much for all the great ideas. My husband gave me an early birthday gift, a TABLETOP GRILL FOR CAMPING!!!! YAY!!!

So I have more options than if I just had my stove. Very excited, and loving these meal and snack ideas. I'll be heading to the market first thing Saturday morning and getting my perishables, and then by 7AM I'll be on the road :) WOOT!!!!

I just got back from a 5 day canoe camp. we cooked bacon and eggs for breakfast (with ham and/or veggies and cheese mixed in). We had assorted salamis and chunks of cheese for lunch with chopped fresh veggies (kept nicely in a costco cooler bag) Dinner was a cabbage or kale salad made on site with other chopped veggies plus a meat. We pre-froze a pork roast and when it thawed cut it into chops. Another roast we chopped into cubes. Both meats were marinaded in a pre-made marinade that we brought then cooked in the fire on hot dog sticks. We had a night of hot dogs/brats and a night of pre-cooked chicken from a deli. The meats kept well in a small cooler and provided their own ice. It was a very easy way to have keto meals and good meats. We have eaten like this on trips of up to 12 days. The produce gets a bit sad by the end but Carrots onions and cabbage all travel well. The cukes don't last as long...

I would think frozen burgers would be ok for 3 or 4 days in a cooler if they go in right when you leave from a deep freeze. Nathan's hot dogs should work, too. Packaged pepperoni doesn't need refrigeration until opened, nor does summer sausage. Cheese should keep well in a cooler, too--and how about hard boiled eggs for eggy variety?

Do you like things like jerky? I like to primitive hike so I pack a lot of jerky (lighter to carry and easy to store). A lot of the store bought is loaded with sugar... but you can find some keto friendly if you aren't one for drying your own. Cheese powder is great to bring along for the same reason. I don't do a lot of cooking when camping, but then again... like I said... I do more primitive camping where you have a backpack and even the underwear is debated on as to whether it is worth carrying the extra weight. Jerky is also great for making an excellent stew, of course, I use dried veggies in it along with any spices I add in the packet so that it's ready to throw in a pot.

Yes, there is a fire pit, but there are limited times in which we can use them. But foil packs would work for dinners. Great idea :)
Breakfasts will probably be bacon and eggs. So that leaves lunchtime. At home, I don't tend to eat very big lunches (if at all) because breakfast keeps me full. But when I go camping, there's lots of hiking and walking (going to get water, walking to the office for ice, the shower house, the beach, other peoples' sites...) so I'm anticipating being hungry mid-day because of the increased activity level.

Can you have a fire where you're camping? If so, you can do foil pack veggies, or meat in foil packs. My low carb veggie packs usually contain things like: brussel sprouts, radishes, broccoli and cauliflower with butter and seasonings. You close the foil pack and cook them over hot coals. Also you could do sausages either on your stove, or on sticks in the fire.

When I go camping I do all my cooking over a fire, or the grate they have over half of our fire pit. We usually grill chicken, burgers, cream cheese stuffed jalapenos wrapped in bacon, pancakes (there are keto versions). I make sure to eat the perishables first. Usually in the order they thaw in the cooler.

I have an upcoming 7 day camping trip to Canada. It'll be my first trip since I started the Keto WOE. Normally, I do pasta, instant potatoes, canned soups, boxed mac & cheese...that kind of stuff.

I won't have electricity, so I'll be using an ice chest to keep foods cold, and my propane stove to cook...

Do you have any suggestions for things that will keep well during the week? I'm able to go to town mid-week if I start to run low, but it's a hike, so I'd prefer to avoid the trip if I'm able.

Obviously, I'll have bacon, eggs, lunchmeat and cheese, but what else...? I may be able to use my parents' grill one or two days, but I won't have grill access every night.
