When it comes to wilderness therapy, blueFire goes above and beyond to create an enriching experience for its clients. Not only do we provide a supportive and transformative environment, but we also recognize the importance of nourishing the body and mind. As part of our holistic approach, blueFire Wilderness employs a Dietitian as well as a Wellness Coach. Together they develop well-rounded meals for all blueFire clients to support their overall well-being. Thanks to the work of both of these individuals, the staff of blueFire have invented a delightful array of camping recipes, named after the very staff members who created them. These recipes bring joy and fun to campers and provide valuable health benefits.

The Importance of Nourishment in the Wild

When engaging in outdoor activities, proper nutrition becomes crucial for maintaining energy levels and promoting overall well-being. blueFire Wilderness recognizes the significance of nourishing meals, especially for our clients who are dealing with mental health challenges or other issues. By providing well-balanced and nutrient-rich meals, we ensure that campers have the necessary fuel to embrace the physical and emotional demands of the wilderness therapy program.

Meals to Support Mental Clarity

The staff-invented recipes at blueFire Wilderness not only taste delicious but also prioritize the nutritional needs of our clients. Collaborating with a dietitian, the recipes are carefully designed to incorporate healthy ingredients that support physical health, mental clarity, and emotional stability. From incorporating fresh vegetables and fruits to incorporating whole grains and lean proteins, these recipes aim to nourish the body and promote a balanced lifestyle.

In addition to providing nutritious meals, blueFire Wilderness strives to instill healthy eating habits in our clients. Through cooking and meal preparation, campers learn valuable skills such as meal planning, portion control, and making mindful food choices. These skills can have a lasting impact on their lives, helping them establish a foundation for maintaining a healthy relationship with food long after their wilderness therapy experience.

The Fun of Staff-Invented Recipes

Creativity thrives in the kitchen, with staff members inventing unique and exciting recipes for their campers. From “Charlie’s Chicken and Cauliflower Cous” and “Eric’s Summy Pad Thai,” each recipe carries the spirit and passion of the staff who designed it. These inventive recipes add fun and personal touch to the camping experience and foster a sense of camaraderie and connection within the group.

These recipes, named after the dedicated staff members who created them, offer both a sense of fun and essential nutritional benefits. By prioritizing the well-being of our clients and collaborating with a dietitian, blueFire Wilderness ensures that clients not only embark on transformative journeys but also cultivate healthy eating habits for a lifetime.
