Plan your meals

Whether you are going away for 1 night or longer, it's a good idea to have a plan of the meals you will eat when away. You should jot down your breakfast, lunch and dinner meal plan for every day you are away (or won't be accessing shops). Include snacks and drinks on this list.

It might sound a bit over the top writing down every meal you are planning on eating, but its a great way to work out what you need or if your list is getting too long, modify before you shop and pack.

Think about each meal and the ingredients you need to make that meal come together at the campsite and the utensils and cooking method for that meal.

Breakfast at home might be easy - bowl of cereal and a coffee - because it's all there in your kitchen. If you want to replicate that meal when away - you need to think about everything that you have to pack to do so.
