Eating Compassioantely While Camping

camp1

We spent the last 4 days out in Vermont camping. With a sweeping view of the Green Mountains, unplugging and getting away from everything but our thoughts and conversation was welcomed and enjoyed. I had the most fun picking out our food, shopping and prepping so that we could throw together delicious meals that didn’t compromise our kind lifestyle.

With a wide open flame to grill as you wish, food tastes…amazing. What it did for me was it put into perspective how easy it is to cook compassionately while camping. With a little bit of chop and prep work, zip lock bags, and tons of fresh fruits and veggies- you’ll be nourishing your mind and body.
