6. Enjoy No-Cook Meals

Instead of making every meal over a fire, which can be time consuming, avoid cooking altogether. No-cook meals take significantly less time to prepare. Pack the following to avoid cooking for breakfast, lunch and dinner:

Yogurt and granola
Fruit with nuts
Cold cut sandwich
Tuna salad
Cheese board

These tips can shave minutes to hours off your time spent cooking at the campsite. Whether you prep your food beforehand, or opt for no-cooked meals, don't let meal prep hold you back from exploring with your family or just relaxing for another few minutes.
