Just thinking about Labor Day camping makes our mouths water. While burgers, canned beans and s’mores sound delicious, their nutritional stats are a little less tempting. For instance, did you know that the average can of baked beans and wieners contains 1,310 milligrams of sodium—55 percent of the daily recommended value? Or that a single s’more (and who eats just one?) is around 350 calories, 12 grams of fat and 56 grams of carbohydrates? Yikes.
The good news is there are healthier camping alternatives that will also satisfy your taste buds, like grilled pizza with homemade garlic tomato sauce, mashed chickpea salad sandwiches and paleo s’mores. Take a look at our favorites and try them for yourself!
