If you ave your own freezer (you didn't say how big it is) you shouldn't have to change your diet from what you have at home.

We take a 90ltr bar fridge with us but we have access to electricity so it makes it easier. We also have an 82ltr ice box which is fantastic for just about everything.

We do take some tins but it is the tinned food we use at home such as baked beans etc. So really we just take everything we have and don't change our normal diet.

Hope that helps.

Mate, when I go camping, i eat like a king :mrgreen: , your already roughing it so why add a poor diet to the equation. Steaks, sausages, fruit, pasta - spaghetti (sometimes make my own, sometimes pre-mix sauce and i just add meat+pasta), the only tinned stuff I ever take is an imported beef gulash mix, that you can get from some deli's, and Primo Factories, but that stuff tastes good enough to serve in a cheap resturant, 500x better than tinned spaghetti or anything :mrgreen:

And all thats just with an icebox, usually does me for 5 days. If you'v got a fridge and a caravan, just plan a usual weeks meals out and stick all the ingredients in there, done.

It sounds simple but, make sure that you can cook whatever you take, a friend of mine once took a microwave dinner camping Image:mrgreen:

Don't knock the microwave!

My wife wants an elctric oven to take when we go camping ... as we mainly stay in caravan parks it's easily done. Great for heating up pies and even cooking a chook.

I wasn't. I was knocking my friend who brought a microwoven dinner to a National Park campsite, 45 mins drive from nearest electricity plug :wink: and when he knew no one in our group has an inverter let alone a M/Wave to take camping :roll: :mrgreen:
