Keto Diet Camping Recipes

Keto Diet Camping Recipes

Joe and I were engaged during our very first camping trip together.  And despite the joy of that weekend,  it was our very last camping trip together!  If I could sleep anywhere, camping wouldn't be an issue, but I can't.  I need my noise maker and a comfy place to lie my head.  

BUT, I do appreciate the 'getting away"-ness of camping and the kids have been asking to camp for YEARS.  It just hasn't happened.  (READ: I've never planned a camping trip, so it never got done ;) 

I decided that enough was enough, this will be our summer to camp.  In a cabin.  With running water.  And beds.  And a toilet.  Oh, and a hot tub!  HA!

10 EPIC foil packet Keto camping recipes are up on the blog today!  I'm so inspired for our upcoming "camping" trip to Estes Park.  Beyond that, though, these could be cooked in the oven with the same foil wrap technique :) #ketodiet #keto #lowcarb #camping #paleo #ketorecipes

We booked a cabin in Estes Park for July and I can't wait!!!  THIS kind of 'camping' I can do.  We'll be right on the Fall River, with a fire pit out back and a hot tub on the deck.  We'll be able to cook over a fire, explore and spend time in nature, and unplug.  All while still getting a decent night's sleep!

Since I eat Keto, and Joe is also giving Keto a try, I've researched some recipe inspiration that we can make work while we're at the cabin!

The Best Keto Camping Recipes

Butter Garlic Herb Steak Foil Packets 

These butter garlic herb steak foil packets look AMAZING.  And can easily be converted to be a Keto camping recipe by swapping out the potatoes and carrots with broccoli, cauliflower, or brussel sprouts!  

Alyssa, from The Recipe Critic, includes a recipe for herbed garlic butter, but we've tried the Kerrygold grass-fed herbed butter from the grocery store and it was fantastic.  I'm all about skipping steps when we can!

Zucchini Parmesan Foil Packets

Zucchini parmesan foil packets sound like a perfect Keto camping side dish recipe!  Buttery, goodness...this one from Damn Delicious is definitely going on our Keto Camping Recipe List :)

Herb Mustard Salmon Foil Packets

I'm starting to see why foil packet grilling is so popular--here's another easy Keto camping recipe from Cooking Madly.

Cilantro Lime Shrimp Foil Packs

Oh, these look sooo good.  We will obviously omit the corn and we could substitute in spiralized zucchini, broccoli, or even kale! 

I love the idea of the sauces staying right in the little foil packet so we can use it as a little bowl.

Philly Cheesesteak Foil Packs

Now this is what I call a Keto camping recipe...juicy, cheesy, low-carb goodness!  These Philly Cheesesteak Foil Packs  from Delish might have just gone to the top of my must-have camping recipe list.

Spicy Meatball Foil Packs

If you're prepping ahead of time at home, these meatballs would really hit the spot--especially on a chillier night out under the stars.   These Spicy Meatball Foil Packs from Tbsp require too much prep work for my comfort level, but that threshold is pretty low ;)  

To make these spicy meatballs Keto compliant, I'd obviously drop the pasta and sub in some zoodles or just eat them with some side veggies.

Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Foil Packets

I would probably sub out the chicken breast for chicken thighs, but otherwise, this recipe for Cheesy Chicken and Broccoli Foil Packets from Passion for Savings is a great Keto campfire recipe.

Garlic Parmesan Salmon and Veggie Foil Pack

I'm not a fan of green beans, but that's an easy swap for asparagus, or whatever veggie you want.  Also, you could use any fish or chicken for this recipe if you're not into salmon.  I love the butter paste technique Chelsea uses in this garlic parmesan salmon veggie foil pack.

Pesto Salmon and Italian Veggies in Foil

This is a nice twist on fish on the grill!  Pesto with tomatoes?   Not something you'd think of when you think of a camping recipe. 

This easy pesto salmon and Italian veggies foil packet recipe from Cooking Classy is right up our alley.  With a swap of the green beans for asparagus, that is.  I don't do green beans unless I have to LOL

Grilled Chicken Fajitas in Foil

These grilled chicken fajita foil packets are fast, flavorful, and only 6 grams of carbs per serving!  Erin, from Well Plated, has a vast library of healthy recipes that I'll be scrolling through after I put this blog post to bed ;) 

Oh, and this cauliflower steak with herby avocado sauce caught my eye.  Plus, she has videos!

And before you fire up the grill, check out this awesome article on foil packet cooking from The Art of Manliness:  Cooking Around the Campfire: 9 Easy and Delicious Foil Packet Recipes

He has useful tips (like always putting the meat on the bottom because it takes the longest to cook) and different foil packet folding techniques--plus some great recipes!  

I don't love camping, but these easy keto camping recipes are really motivating me for our upcoming cabin "camping" trip.  I might do a few trial runs with these packets in our oven or grill at home!  #ketodiet #ketorecipes #lowcarbcamping #paleo

I don't know about you, but I'm really inspired by these Keto camping recipes and I'm actually getting more excited about our "camping" trip next month :)
