According to a KPMG Research Report related to caravanning and camping, more and more people have become interested in caravanning, as they want to relish the spectacular sights Australia offers them.

However, we cannot deny that cooking while caravanning is challenging. Still, just because you are short of space, that doesn’t mean you shouldn’t prepare delicious meals, does it? I thought you would agree.

When you think of vacation, you instantly think of pampering yourself with mouth-watering foods. Restaurants provide you with a wide selection of meals of this kind, but, if you want to keep your expenses low, you have to do your best at cooking the most delicious delights, since a cramped kitchen shouldn’t stop you. I hope you’re not hungry while reading this!

Plan Your Meals in Advance

Planning your meals in advance will save you a lot of headaches. When you’re home, you can come up with a delicious meal on the spot. When caravanning, that raises a couple of challenges because your supplies are rather limited. Since you can’t bring a full fridge with you, you need to plan your meals and only get those ingredients you need for preparing them. It may be tiresome to create a menu, but you’ll be happy you’ve done it once vacation mood is in!

Marinate in Advance

If you want to ease your cooking chores while travelling with your motorhome, it’s recommended to marinate veggies and meat. That will make it easier for you to prepare the dishes you have planned, plus they will be extremely flavourful!

Use Leftovers

If there are any leftovers from your delicious meals, don’t worry; there’s no reason you should dispose of them. As a matter of fact, we recommend you use them to prepare your next meal. That is a good way of saving money, and on making your adventure more enjoyable and less stressful.

Don’t Forget About Spices

Spices can make an average meal become a mouth-watering one – guaranteed. While it goes without saying that you will take salt and pepper with you – which are essential – you should take a range of aromatic herbs and spices as well. For instance, did you know that chili powder can be added to any meal, giving it a marvellous flavour? Apart from that, according to research, this delicious spice boosts your metabolism and improves your digestion.

If you’re planning on cooking meat dishes, make sure to take some parsley as well, since it complements the flavour of the meat perfectly. The greatest thing about spices is that they occupy a minimum amount of space, but the difference they make regarding the taste of your dishes is phenomenal.

Keep It Simple

Opting for versatile meals, such as the old school egg and bacon sandwich, or the classic campfire jaffle is a golden practice when caravanning. These are always the winning combinations for keeping you energised the entire day. Fresh veggies can be easily barbecued while camping, with some sausages – a mouth-watering combo, isn’t it?

Good luck packing for your big adventure! If you have any questions, feel free to address them in the comment section below.
