Food ideas for every holiday plan!

Summer holidays are all about fun and relaxation—but they also involve a bit of planning. What do you eat when you’re camping, on the road or at the cottage? Here are some mouth-watering ideas to pack this summer.



Cycling, hiking, kayaking, paddleboarding… Whether you’re going for a day or a week, you’ll need food that delivers maximum energy and that fits easily in your backpack!

Mexican corn on the cob

Cook it over the fire and then top with mayo, lime, chili powder and grated cheese. When you’re finished eating, toss the cob into the fire. No waste to leave behind!

Espresso trail mix

In a bag, combine pumpkin seeds, cashews, unsalted peanuts, and dried goji berries and cranberries with a spoonful of instant coffee. This mix is sure to put a spring in your step!

Homemade granola bars

Fuel up with this terrific snack that’s packed with protein! Use a variety of grains and dried fruit. For a sweet touch, add chocolate chips.




Planning on touring the province and checking out the summer’s hottest outdoor music events? Prepare to socialize, have fun and dance up a storm! Word to the wise: Pack handy snacks that you can eat on the go and don’t bring more than needed.

Flavoured water

Make ice cubes with slices of citrus fruit, berries or fresh herbs. Toss the cubes into your water bottle to keep it cool and stay hydrated all day long!

Cheese bites revisited

Cut Irresistibles cheddar cheese into slices, then lay them onto pieces of raw red pepper. The taste will surprise you!

Ready-made sandwiches

There’s no need to stress! Simply pick up some freshly made sandwiches at your nearest Metro store!




Hit the open road with no particular destination in mind and let your days be guided by sunrise and sunset. Since it’s all about enjoying the present moment, choose foods that travel well and keep for a long time.

Quick salad

Mix fresh fennel, thin apple slices, pumpkin seeds, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and pepper. The contrasting colours make this a photo-worthy dish!

Beach tacos

Top a tortilla with cooked meat seasoned with your favourite spices, half a diced green pepper, a little onion and a few sprigs of cilantro.

No-cook energy balls

This one is really easy! Mix some instant oats with peanut butter and semi-sweet chocolate chips. Shape into balls and you’re good to go!




Taking time off at the cottage gives you the chance to reconnect with nature while clinging to a few creature comforts. Make the most of it by using your BBQ as an outdoor kitchen.

The perfect trio

Baby potatoes, onions and Italian sausages cooked en papillote.

Catch of the day

A whole fish always impresses a crowd. Cook it directly on the grill with zucchinis and halved bell peppers. Place the cooked food in the middle of the table. Self-service!

Breakfast muffins

In a muffin tin, add bacon slices and then an egg to each mould. Top with mushrooms, diced bell peppers and onions. Cook on the BBQ—it’s that easy!




Camping, cottage, hiking, cycling, museums, baseball tournaments, kids’ soccer games... No matter where you’re going, long drives are often unavoidable. Get yourself a good cooler and stock it with healthy foods that travel well.

Salad to go

Make a layered salad with baby spinach, green apples, goat cheese and walnuts in a smoothie jar. Close the lid and replace the straw with a fork. Serve with your favourite dressing!

Chip bag tacos

Fill a bag of corn chips with a little meat and your choice of veggies. Add sour cream and some salsa, mix and serve. Your kids will love it!
