daily eats: 6.22.11 {camp version}

Camp life is very different from my regular, 9-5 life. It’s exhausting, always different, always exciting and totally fulfilling. I’m glad it only lasts 4 weeks though, it’s a little intense but I love every minute. Did I mention that I’m already in love with all of the kids?!

6.22.11

6:30 am Coffee: Internet and paperwork at Dunkin Donuts. (Addicted to Hazelnut Coffee + Cream)

9:00 am Breakfast: The kids were having waffles this morning (this is our example plate) but I opted for something a little more satisfying and light as I was teaching yoga sculpt classes soon after.

I stuck with a hard boiled egg + fresh fruit.

9:45 – 12:00 Yoga Sculpt/Warrior Yoga – 3 classes – so much fun. Most of the kids really enjoyed it, the boys were especially fun to teach, which was a little surprising!

1:30 pm Lunch: Grilled cheese + tomato soup are a lunch favorite at camp – I had a big salad instead of the soup, alongside a grilled cheese and a few cheese cubes.

Check out that gorgeous salad! Mixed greens + cucumbers + tomatoes + roasted artichokes + pepper salad and a basil- lemon dressing. I might miss camp food this year…

3:30 pm Snack: First Tasting Trio of the season! Pita chips + white bean & basil hummus, greek yogurt tzatziki and roasted red pepper feta dip. The favorite? Roasted red pepper feta dip.

The Tasting Trio’s are one of my  favorite parts of camp and something I developed. It is all about having them try new foods and most of the time they are pleasantly surprised.

6:30 pm Dinner: barilla pasta penne plus + marinara + cheese cubes + salad bar

Rarely do I have plain pasta and marinara, but this tasted great and our chef cooked our whole grain pasta perfectly! Pasta Plus was a great way to introduce the kids to a “whole grain” pasta – I didn’t hear one complaint and one serving contains 10 g of protein and 4 g of fiber. (The breadstick was average, so I ate half and had some extra pasta.)

8:30 pm Snack: Birthday Cake for a Birthday Celebration!

10:00 pm: Crash.

    Where is this camp? I worked for a weight loss camp in MA back in college. I was just a counselor then bc I didn’t have my degree yet but I Learned SO much about helping teen girls! Looks like a similar place! How did you get the job or hear about it? I would love this!

      It is in Wisconsin Dells, WI. My family started it so I’ve been involved since the beginning. I love it. :)

    This is by far the tastiest, most nutritious camp food I’ve ever heard of! I love that the sample breakfast plate is fruit-heavy and waffle-light. Good for you and the kids for eating so well. The food must help them make it through the day with more energy and less crashing!

    Wow that’s some seriously delicious looking meals for a camp! I think I was lucky if I got a smashed PB&J as a kid ;)

    It’s so great to see the kids doing yoga and eating healthy food – Jamie Oliver would be so proud!
