We’re looking forward to spending time camping in Canada’s great outdoors. Here are 5 reasons why you should take eggs on your camping trip this summer.

1. Egg-cellent Recipes to take camping this summer!

Our friends Stacey, Julie and Angie are cooking up a campfire storm this summer.  What better reason to pack eggs on your camping trip! Forget those traditional campfire meals, give one of these unique, nutritious recipes a try. We have Breakfast Nachos from Angie, Bacon Wrapped Muffin Pan Omelettes care of Julie, and who could possibly resist Stacey's Egg and Nutella S'mores . And for more tasty recipes, perfect for summer, click here .

2. EGGS2 go! Omega 3 Hard Boiled Egg Snack Pack - convenient & nutritious

Our EGGS2 go! Omega 3 Hard Boiled Egg Snack Pack is perfect for camping and weekend getaways. Be sure to look for them in the deli section. These eggs are already hard-boiled and peeled, which means that there’s no mess and all of the work is already done. Not only that, they use very little packaging and their small size makes them very easy to transport. They can serve as a nutritious snack or can be easily used to make egg salad, deviled eggs, or a number of other recipes – to learn more, visit our Recipe Page here .

3.  Who needs cooler packs, use frozen liquid eggs!

A lot of campers don’t know that liquid eggs can serve a dual-purpose: on one hand, you can use Naturegg Omega Plus or Simply Egg Whites to easily make omelettes and scrambled eggs. Products like our Egg Creations Fat Free Cheese & Chives , Egg Creations Whole Eggs and Egg Creations Fat Free Garden Vegetable provide variety without having to pack, cut, and prepare veggies. Also, the cleanup is easy as there is very little packaging.

Another little known fact about our liquid eggs is that they can be frozen and used as a cooler pack replacement. In fact, liquid eggs can be frozen for up to 3 months, if frozen before their best before date. Who needs ice packs taking up precious space when frozen liquid egg cartons can keep your food cold?

4.  Fibre Egg Cartons make great fire starters

It’s not just eggs that are great for camping – egg cartons are also surprisingly useful! When you need to start a campfire, be sure to use your empty egg cartons because these fibre cartons burn quickly and easily. Keeping waste to a minimum is also important.

5.  Make fun egg carton crafts with the kids

When camping with your children, another way to keep and reuse your egg cartons is to make egg carton crafts. It’s a fun, unique activity that encourages your children to be creative and use their imagination – and it’s a great way to pass a rainy day in the tent!

For example, click here to learn how to make the Window Garden Egg Carton Craft, one of our favourites!

So, when you plan your next camping trip, remember to pack eggs in your cooler – they’re not only delicious snacks, but they can also help keep your food cold, start fires, and give you a fun activity with your kids.
