Food Talk / Van Supported Tours and Food
« on: August 29, 2013, 02:33:08 am »
A question that is regularly raised regarding your Van supported tours is about food, preparation, cooking etc. yes it is covered in the handbook, sort of, but then the group emails about the subject began. Perhaps there will be some who wish to share some menus, tips etc on this forum. Seems like a natural to me. Here is one I like on S24O and on van-supported, when possible. I have the van pick up the already roasted chicken at the WalMart, Safeway etc.. Then in camp I add vegies, potatoes, and/or rice. The chicken is inexpensive, 3 or 4 riders a bird and prep time is minimal (steam the vegies or thin sliced potatoes in tin foil with EVOO and seasoning, rip open a bag of salad or two. DONE. Lots of vegies. It appears fresh fruit and vegies are excluded from most tour route restaurants bill of fare, and sometimes we too fall in to that trap.
Thanks for starting this julie.

General Discussion / camp food and ideas for eating better

I tried to eat one restaurant type meal a day when I was on my first ride. Usually it was second breakfast because it was cheap and that way I could talk to some local area people easily. I do not like to cook in camp using the freeze dried stuff because I don't think it tastes that good and it is pricy as hell. I do like to do the supermarket roasted checken and bag of salad (beer of course) pretty regularly. I also throw salmon in tin foil with seasoning into the fire pit (also one with sliced potatoes, onions and olive oil) then make a fire, put on coffee and boil a can of green beans. Fire dies down, I have the salmon and beans for dinner. I sometimes add  a little dark rum and cocoa to the coffee for a coffee nudge dessert and call it good.

What other (good and easy) camp food and ideas for better eating have you had success with? I'm omnivorous, but a good touring buddy is vegetarian (eats seafood)so vegies and tofu stuff is welcomed.
