Camping food: Deluxe turkey-avocado pita sandwiches for the trail

by Kelsey

This, my friends, is how you make your hike even tastier.

Combine turkey, salami, Havarti cheese and red onion on a pita sliced in half. Bring a ripe avocado with you, un-cut, and keep it protected from bruises in a container. Also bring a sharp knife, preferably one with a sheath or a pocket knife (so you do not slice your fingers off while digging in your pack.)

Camping food: Fresh avocado for your pita sandwich

When you’ve reached the Zen Garden (our affectionate term we stole from a friend for the destination of the hike — usually the highest peak or the halfway point before turning back), find a beautiful view. Sit near it. Slice your avocado in half, remove the pit, and slather your pita sandwiches with fresh avo on the trail. Your already-delicious sandwich just got even better.

We'll be going camping here soon because the weather will FINALLY let up. (We're in southern GA!) These sound perfect to take with because they're in portable bread!

That's awesome, Jennifer. Get out in that fresh air!! Let me know if you make anything fun to eat while you're camping — I'd love to see what you think up.

Excellent. Eating avocado sandwich in camping trips will also give you more refreshed and energized than eating meat sandwiches.

Rosemary – really?? I didn't know that!! Of course, as you can see, there is a lot of meat mixed in with that avocado, but I'd love to hear what other ways you make avocado sandwiches for better energy.
