So here in MN it doesn't look like or feel like spring yet but it will come. So I am thinking ahead a bit. I need some good idea's for taking the kids on a picnic (we are all eating THM) that will do well in a bag. Also looking for some good camping idea's. We have a travel trailer so I could do just about anything but I would like some idea's that I could mainly put together at home and just have to heat while camping so momma doesn't spend all camping cooking. Or just some fast throw it together idea's. ThanksMisty
Chili is a wonderful camping meal, and easy to make ahead and reheat. If you want a biscuit or anything with it, I love the Country Biscuits with cheddar and jalapeño in the Muffins and Breads chapter. Those will need to be reheated too. My family usually takes along a bunch of Hebrew National hot dogs also. They're not full of junk like other hot dogs. They're great over a fire or heated up on the stove, and they're quick and easy. You can serve them with mayo, mustard, unsweetened pickle relish, etc. You could even pair it with some leftover chili. Eat them bunless, or make a low carb bread to serve them with. A great side dish is a cauliflower 'potato' salad. I don't remember if there's a recipe for that in the book or not. But it's easy to make ahead. Celery with peanut butter is a quick and tasty side or snack. Greek yogurt and berries are also easy and quick. And don't forget about sandwiches/wraps. Make some low carb bread if you like, or use Joseph's pitas. Deli meats, veggies, cheese, or PB, egg salad, tuna salad, etc.
Some of these things will work for picnics, too. Like the sandwiches, celery and peanut butter, and even the yogurt/cottage cheese with berries. The frozen berries keep the yogurt cold, but are perfectly thawed later so you can eat them without freezing your teeth.
steffanie3: vintagejva, the bottom of page 348 is a good reference for this (more as a side).

robbiesnest56: Do you make the ice cubes out of whole fat and low fat coconut milk so you have both options? Are they both S?[br]

ggwells: Ok new to the site. Want to keep it simple. I understand not to mix high fat with carbs. I love having eggs for breakfast sometimes. So can I have egg burrito with bacon. Then have to S meals for lunch and dinner?

steffanie3: All coconut things are best thought of as S, but you could use a small amount for FP robbiesnest56

steffanie3: ggwells, if you purchase some low-carb tortillas you could have a S meal and enjoy burrito. For how it effects lunch and dinner on THM you simply need to wait three hours before you next meal and switching fuels

stacylynn: Help! What type of snack do I get when I mix a (green) golden delicious apple with a (1 oz.) slice of cheese? Is this a cross-over?

steffanie3: An E, the cheese is pretty close to your tsp of added fat in an E

stacylynn: Got another one for you: Zone Bar with 210 cal; 7 g fat; 23 carbs (eek!); 3 g fiber; 15 gm sugar and 14 gm protein would fall under what category? Mess up? IMA goof-ball? Oops? Really...how do I categorize this poor choice?
Sept 9, 2014 19:52:07 GMT -5
steffanie3: Probably a start again in three hours Or off plan

stacylynn: Thank you, Steffanie3. Your answer was swirling around in my head, but who wants to admit it? Life happens...then you jump back on the THM band-wagon! Blessings...

Sept 10, 2014 23:18:31 GMT -5
steffanie3: And it was a way better choice than many things I am sure.
