5 Reasons Why Bush Beans Are a Good Camping Food

We have recently teamed up with our partner Bush’s Beans for our Learn to Camp program!

Here are a few reasons why we think beans should be on the menu for your next camping trip:

1. Beans are the perfect camping food.

No matter the temperature or time of year, beans are a great addition to a campfire. They’re easy to transport, don’t spoil in the heat, and go with almost anything else you can eat (or can be a meal on their own).

Plus, they’re packed with plant-based protein to help you recover from a full day spent outdoors.

2. You can get straight to the good stuff.

All you have to do to make Bush’s Beans is open the can and pour them in. Heating them is even optional (although we like them much hotter).

It may seem insignificant, but worrying about what and how you’re going to eat when the nearest kitchen is miles away can be a major stressor for many campers. Once this is taken care of, you will have more time to have fun and make memories.

3. They support Canadian farmers

Although Bush’s is based in the United States, it purchases some of its beans from Canadian farmers. They have been a family business since 1908 and have always believed that it is important to care for the people and communities in which their beans are enjoyed.

4. They are a versatile meal, something for every palate.

From bruschetta to chili, beans can do it all!
