This year my husband and I are taking a road trip to a beautiful camping spot down in Tobermory, Ontario. If you haven’t been, you must put it on your list. Tobermory is a beautiful little lakeside town , people go there for the beautiful crystal clear blue water, rock beaches, and adventures <3

As our trip approaches, I wanted to share with you all some of our Vegan Camping Food and Supply Essentials!
