A Simple Gluten-Free Menu for Your Next Awesome Camping Adventure

This menu will help you plan a simple gluten-free meal during your camping trip. Whether you have been eating gluten-free your whole life or you just started working towards a better eating plan, deciding what to eat when away from home can be a challenge.

In fact, I used this menu to plan out all my food and just substituted the yogurt for my favorite dairy-free brand. My family enjoyed the variety and this food ended up being just the right amount. Tip: Pre-chop the messiest items at home and pack them in a reusable or biodegradable container so there is less waste (and work) while camping.

Even when you start to add other needs from members of your party (dairy-free, nut-free, soy-free), this menu will keep you on track. Remember, all items can be substituted or modified to fit your family’s food tastes. Always pack things you will actually eat (not what you think you should eat). Now, let’s take a look at this camping menu so you can figure out what the heck you should buy while meal prepping for the full week.

This sample gluten-free menu can be used to get you started for your next camping trip. I packed these items when I went camping for a week and kept everything in my certified bear-proof cooler. Feel free to create your own menu using gluten-free meals you already enjoy.

Always remember to follow general rules for outdoor food safety, including bear proof coolers, and put out campfires properly.
