Healthy Outdoor Eating

How do we love foil packets? Let us count the ways. These makeshift bowls are mess-free and perfect for preparing meals on a camping expedition, but best of all, this cooking method keeps calorie counts low. You'll be amazed by how much unnecessary fat you can cut out by using a lightly buttered foil pack in place of the traditional skillet.

Healthy Grilled Shrimp Fajita Foil Pack

The only thing you'll miss in these lightened-up shrimp fajitas is that iconic restaurant sizzle sound. Serve them family style and let your guests choose their own toppers, like classic cilantro, salsa and avocado — but go ahead and make up your own. (Cabbage and pickled carrots are test-kitchen favorites.)

Healthy Grilled Chicken-and-Rice Foil Packs

If you're looking to grill something besides burgers and dogs on your next campout, this low-fat chicken dinner will do the trick. Be sure to use converted rice instead of regular for this recipe (each grain contains tiny pinholes so it cooks faster than conventional rice).

Healthy Grilled BBQ Meatloaf Foil Pack

What makes this low-fat meatloaf speedier than the typical oven version? The reflective surface of the foil packet, which traps and intensifies the heat like a mini silver oven. Plus, the loaf is slightly thinner, so it cooks more quickly while maintaining a flavorful char on the surface.

Healthy Grilled Summer Vegetable-and-Spaghetti Foil Pack

Yes, you can make one-pot pasta outdoors! In this recipe, sun-dried tomato pesto and olive oil deliver loads of flavor, and whole-wheat spaghetti and veggies provide plenty of fiber. So even though it's cooked on a grill, this garden-fresh sauce tastes like it simmered on the stovetop.

Healthy Grilled French Toast Foil Packets

A lightly buttered foil pack steps in for the traditional skillet and cuts way down on the fat for cooking. For campground cooking, use canned nonfat evaporated milk (it's one less thing to keep cold). Go for the nonstick foil to prevent sticking and burning.

Healthy Grilled Peach Crisp Foil Packs
