Gluten-Free Camping

Celiac.com 05/20/2010 - The weather is getting warm and it's almost that time again-time to go camping! Camping is supposed to be relaxing and fun. Most people camp to escape the monotony of the daily rut, and to get back to the basics. Eating gluten-free while camping is really easy, once you know what to bring and what to avoid.

Camping trips usually consist of the same easy to prepare foods. Chili, pasta, canned soups, hot chocolate, sandwiches, hot cereal, trail mix and  s'mores are the high-lights of most camping meals. All of those things can easily be prepared gluten-free. In fact, many gluten-free already prepared foods can be used for camping trips. Anything canned or boxed that you normally enjoy at home, can typically be converted to camping food.

It is important to eat the perishable foods first. A  camping trip lasting for more than one night can render perishable foods inedible. That's why it's important to eat  refrigerated food on the first day or two, and save the shelf-stable food for the remainder of the trip. Store  perishables in a cooler with plenty of ice and/or cold packs. To grill gluten-free food,  avoid gluten contamination by using a grill from home. Using the grill provided at the camping site is possible, but using aluminum foil or a pan as a buffer  will keep food away from gluten contamination. There are even special racks with ridges that can be placed on the the grill and will keep food from touching the grill.

Two Day Sample Meal Plan (everything should be gluten-free):

Day 1-
  • Breakfast- Pancakes with fresh berries and real maple syrup
  • Snack- Energy Bars
  • Lunch- Sandwiches with gluten-free bread
  • Snack- Carrots & celery sticks
  • Dinner- Instant mashed potatoes, instant gravy, grilled meat and/or veggies. 
  • Dessert- S'mores (see recipe below)
Day 2-
Make sure to buy all gluten-free products. Don't forget the gluten-free sunscreen and the gluten-free insect repellent.

To Make
1. Put your marshmallow on a fire safe skewer. Heat the marshmallow over an open flame until it begins to brown and melt.
2. Break the graham cracker in half. Sandwich the chocolate between the cracker and the hot marshmallow. Allow the chocolate to melt and the marshmallow to cool a moment before eating.
3. Add strawberries or other gluten-free favorites.

Happy Trails!

Thank you for your tips, it is so easy to forget about the possibility of cross-contamination. My son is gluten intolerant and most people make such a big deal out of it, but there are really so many products available nowadays that it should be no problem. Sure the cost is higher, but the selection is quite good. The biggest problem is psychological: he cannot eat everything that other kids eat, but needs to have his own "version".
