When you’re living a life on the road, gas station food just doesn’t cut it. Trust us.
They say this is the most important meal of the day, so why not do it right? You’re going to need something to jump start your body besides caffeine (though we love our coffee as much as anyone.) We made these Breakfast Tacos on one of our very first camping trips together at the beach in South Carolina and we’ve been making them ever since.
Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 13 min
4 small tortilla shells (corn or flour)
Colby Jack Cheese
1 sliced avocado
Pinch of salt and pepper
Goes best with coffee. We recommend Kuju!
This is often the most underrated and unappreciated meal. I mean, let’s face it. Lunch can sometimes be downright inconvenient. When you’re out adventuring, who really wants to stop to cook? This dish is quick though and super tasty. Best part is, that you can use some of the ingredients in your dinner so nothing goes to waste.
Prep Time: 10 min
Total Time: 25 min
Cheddar, Fontina, Smoked Gouda (whatever you have or love. How can you go wrong with cheese?)
Pro tip: We like to eat whatever is freshest and in season. If it’s not tomato season, sub avocado or a sauteed portabella mushroom.
Have you had any water to drink yet today?! We often forget to drink until we’re so thirsty we can hardly stand it. Down some water with lunch, y’all.
If you’ve spent any time around Caroline and I, you know that we’re always thinking one meal ahead. This recipe is one of our go – to staples on the road.
Prep Time: 15 min
Total Time: 30 min
½ pound of chicken (tenders are probably the easiest and require the least amount of prep)
1 small onion
3 small mini peppers (green, red, yellow)
¼ cup of olive oil
Pinch of salt and Pepper
Leftover rice if you have any from lunch!
(On second thought, are these really optional?)
Goes great with Wedge Brewing Co. beers!
Pro Tip: Prepare extra packets and have this meal for lunch the next day! It’s a great way to make sure you use everything up that you buy so that nothing goes to waste.
If you try any of these, we’d love to see your photos and hear your thoughts!
