I love camping. I love BBQ. I love fire. I love food. But… what can you eat, when you can’t have s’mores (high in amines), when BBQ pork is out of the question (high in amines), and when beer (also high in amines) is a no-no? Hmmmm… Well, here’s a sample low amine camping menu / shopping list (my menu for this weekend) that might do right by you.
Everything but the salt & vinegar chips and the pre-bagged salad’s dressing (can’t say either way about that one) should be low in amines, so long as the ingredients picked are very fresh. I process and freeze my meats as soon as possible after purchase so that they do not thaw until I am out there, to help slow decay.
Sorry to say, I still have no substitute for s’mores. But you could always bake an apple in foil in the fire!
