Camp Cooking & Body Image
Quintessential camp cooking
Ah, summertime. The warm weather calls lots of people to campgrounds across the country – especially this last weekend for 4th of July celebrations!
While camping, you’re trying to pack as light as possible, so when it comes to cooking, your options can feel limited without the usual array of cookware you’d have at home. Sure, you could buy pre-packaged camping meals, but those are usually pretty pricey and don’t taste great.
;So besides the typical hot dogs and hamburgers camping fare, what can you make that takes up as little space and time as possible? There are a lot of meals you can cook on a campfire by wrapping them in foil. You can also try one-pot meals for less waste. Yep, just bring one pot with you for all your cooking. Well, and maybe a spoon to stir/serve with. These kinds of meals combine meat, veggies, and grains in a delicious mix so you don’t have to cook anything separately – and there’s very little cleaning to be done afterward.
There’s a lot of pressure on everyone to feel good and look good all the time, and that, my friends, is a difficult feat. Everyone wants to be healthy, but each person’s body has a different way of reacting to different foods, exercises, and even sleep patterns. There are so many factors that influence the way we look and feel throughout the day and throughout the year, and trying to find the right balance can feel nearly impossible.
Most of us struggle to get enough sleep every night with all the studying and working we do. I don’t know about you, but I stress-eat – especially around exam time! I’ve gained some weight during college, but I’ve also started working out more, and I try not to focus on it too much, but for some people that can be harder to do.
If you’re struggling with finding the right balance in your eating, sleeping, or exercising habits, you aren’t alone. People from all walks of life struggle with body image – and social media definitely amplifies those pressures.
If you click below, you’ll find a beautiful post (and blog) from a friend of mine who has fought with these issues for years and has figured out her own balance. She’s also got some scrumptious recipes – try them out!
Today I learned…
- …that all major manufacturers of color laser printers entered a secret agreement with governments to ensure that all printouts are forensically traceable by printing encoded serial numbers and timestamps in yellow ink dots on every printout.
- …that pineapples were a symbol of wealth in 18th century England, and that you could rent a pineapple to show off to your friends.
- …that the San Francisco fog has become so common that it has earned a name: Karl the Fog.
- …that the reason Twitter has a limit of 140 characters is so that when tweets were sent via SMS, messages wouldn’t be split. SMS messages are 160 characters and they wanted to leave 20 characters for the username.
