Alternatives to Meat for a Typical Camp Menu
These are easy items that the 'grubmaster' can take for the vegans who are camping with meat-eaters.
Monday: Lightlife bologna slices for deli sandwiches (often in the produce section)
Tuesday: Lightlife veggie hot dogs
Wednesday: Hummus instead of grilled cheese
Thursday: Instead of chicken nuggets, leftover veggie hot dogs or peanut butter and jelly sandwiches
Friday: Instead of fish sticks, pasta and a meatless tomato sauce
Sunday: Yves veggie pepperoni with plain spaghetti made separately (There are Nate’s vegetarian meatballs, but this brand may be harder to find for typical camp planners.)
Monday and Tuesday: Lightlife Smart Ground
Wednesday: Morningstar Farms Vegan Grillers (Morningstar is owned by Kellogg's, and the brand is found in many stores.)
Thursday: Vegetarian chili
Friday: Instead of chicken, veggie jerky or cans of Indian chana masala (such as Jyoti) if the parties are adventurous.
*Note: We don't necessarily think vegetarians should always eat this many meat substitutes, but these are easy alternatives when the rest of the meat-based menu is being prepared this way.
