Summer’s around the corner, and there’s nothing better about the change of seasons than the seasonal snacks that come with it. After humankind’s discovery of fire came the next greatest accomplishment: campfire foods.

Keep your conscience clean and your tummy full this summer with these animal-friendly vegan snacks and meals, ready for grab-and-go campfire meals surrounded by Mother Nature.

When You Rise

Greet the day with hearty hash browns and a tofu scramble—don’t forget to pack a skillet! Not ready to cook that early? Prepare some yummy berry muffins in advance.

Midday Eats

Sit down for lunch with a snack to help you through that late afternoon hike. Cook up some Boca chik’n patties or potent polenta-stuffed peppers with a side of skewered or sautéed veggies.

Sundown Suppers

As the day winds down, fill up on grilled kebabs or char-grilled vegan prawns. If you’re up for slightly more prep work, try beer-basted Tofurky beer brats with caramelized onions and hot mustard. For a tasty side dish, pack some cans of black beans and corn, a few limes, and some veggies and make black-bean and corn salad or grill up some asparagus. For a sweet side dish, toss some fruit on the grill and let the juices caramelize them to a gooey goodness.

For Dessert

Sweeten up the Great Outdoors with a tasty batch of banana s’mores or vegan marshmallow s’mores. Or whip up some of RP’s Famous Peanut Butter–Chocolate Chip Cookies and bring ’em along for easy munching.

By the Lake

Stock up on your favorite vegan beer because nothing says summer like a cool one by the lake. Pair your brew with Barbecue Fritos, Lay’s Yellow Corn Chips, or Nature Valley Roasted Almond Crunchy Granola Bars—all vegan!

When You Get the Munchies

Remember that there are plenty of foods and treats that are accidentally vegan. Check out our “Accidentally Vegan” list for hundreds of good ideas.

Done munching? Remember to leave the campsite like you left it. Animals like a clean home, too!
