Your favorite fire-roasted meals
Fire up the s'mores safely with a cozy campfire.
Morning Glory Muffins
These hearty muffins can be made before you even step outside. They may taste sweet, but they're bite-size nutritional powerhouses. Flaxseeds add heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids, and the rolled oats add a healthy portion of fiber. And you can adapt this recipe to include your favorite dried fruits, like apricots or raisins.

Quick Roasted-Vegetable Fajitas
This meal is the epitome of convenience. The veggies are rich in antioxidants and can marinate in a plastic bag while you cook the fiber-rich beans over the fire. The soup mix marinade adds plenty of spices with minimum cleanup. If you're worried about the cheese going bad, you can eliminate it without losing any zesty flavor.

Quick Baked Pears
Watch out, s'mores—you've got some competition. This fire-friendly dessert is a low-cal way to end the night. Simply throw a few pears and some cinnamon and sugar in your bag before you leave. Though the recipe suggests using a microwave, placing them on a pan above the fire has the same effect. Use some of your leftover granola to sprinkle on top, and you have a delicious, fiber-rich dessert.
