10 of the best camping foods
Choosing what to take on holiday can be stressful and it's easy to forget. Follow our checklist of top camping foods to get your tip off to the best possible start. Even if the weather is awful, your appetite will be satisfied.
Eggs & bacon
Eggs, sausages, bacon have been the staple of a campfire for many years. They just taste better over an open flame.
Don't like the meaty stuff? Get some pancake mix, butter and sugar or maple syrup and you're ready for the ultimate way to start the day.
Cereal or breakfast bars
These bars make great snacks - go for the ones with oats as these are low-gi carbs that will help you steadily release energy throughout the day. They're a sinch to pack as well.
What good is a fire without marshmallows? Sure, they'll rot your teeth and make you fat but a few aren't going to hurt.
Make your own burger patties at home and bring them with you. Or just buy some. Either way, they're quick to prepare and great on a fire. Burgers don't have to be unhealthy either.
Hey, if they're good enough for the SAS, they're good enough for you. Not just beans of course, any canned food is an excellent idea as it will keep for a long time.
Don't forget the milk for tea, coffee or cereal. But make sure to keep it cool or it'll go sour quickly.
Are we lowering the tone here? If this is a family trip, you'll thank us later. Take a six-pack at least.
Pasta is ridiculously easy to prepare, can be used in multiple ways and fills you up for cheap. It can be as complicated or as simple as you like.
Bananas, apples, oranges, whatever takes your fancy. They make great snacks and can be used in dessert items. Take some chocolate sauce and have banana splits or just eat them during the day's activity.
1. You can\'t leave out jaffles. :)
Ham,cheese,& tomato are my favourite. Ham and pineapple, egg and bacon, and canned chilli concarne or stew cooked in one are great also.

2. Spam. Shelf life of about a thousand years. Can be prepared a number of ways. Doesn\'t require refrigeration when can has not been opened. And best of all, it bounces.
