African Sweet Potato and Peanut Stew

Make it a Full Plate Meal: Serve your stew for an outdoor dinner. A small dessert can fit on the remaining 25% part of your plate. I'd pick a cookie.

75%water-fiber foods – sweet potatoes, onions, tomatoes, chickpeas, kale
25% foods – peanut butter, oil, cookie

Southwestern Chicken Foil Packets

Make it a Full Plate Meal:Open up your packet and dig in. A fresh apple will be a delicious dessert. Don't eat chicken? Leave it out and double up on the beans.

75% water-fiber foods –  brown rice, black beans, bell peppers, onions, salsa, apple
25% foods – chicken, cheese

Recipe Note: Choose either the chicken or the cheese, or reduce each amount to half to keep the 25% zone from spilling into the 75%.

Johnny Appleseed Oatmeal

Make it a Full Plate Meal: Serve your oatmeal as directed before heading out for that morning hike.

75% water-fiber foods –oats, apple
25% foods – seeds (hemp/chia/flax), maple syrup

Mediterranean Chickpea Packets

Make it a Full Plate Meal: Serve the packet with a side of hummus and sliced cucumbers for a healthy meal out in the sticks.😉

75% water-fiber foods – chickpeas, zucchini, red pepper, shallots, hummus, cucumbers
25% foods – feta, olive oil

Dutch Oven Chili and Cornbread

Make it a Full Plate Meal: Use only 1/2 of the amount of "cornbread" topping to ensure it sticks in the 25% part of the plate. A fresh nectarine would be great for dessert or you can serve a grilled banana campfire s’more instead.

75% water-fiber foods –beans, onions, green chiles, tomatoes, nectarines
25% foods – cornbread

Grilled Banana Campfire S'mores

Make it a Full Plate Meal: Try the “s’more” as directed in the recipe.

75% water-fiber foods –banana
25% foods – crackers, marshmallow, chocolate

👉 Water-fiber foods are 75% zone foods – whole, unprocessed fruits, vegetables, beans and cooked whole grains.
