Great Food for Your Next Camping Adventure

Millions of individuals and families will be out and about camping this summer. Of course one of the main things to consider, in advance, is what kinds of food you’re going to bring to eat. If you have a large family, or a few picky eaters, you may want to ask your children for suggestions. Suggestions will help to make sure that you have food that everyone will enjoy.

 

Whether you are cooking for your family or a large group of people, it may be a good idea to purchase your meats in bulk. Most supermarkets, in the United States, charge less for items purchased in large quantities. If you are unable to use all of the meat that you purchased, just freeze it to use on another occasion.

 

In addition to meat over the campfire or grill, it is also important to consider side dishes. Pre-made side dishes, such as macaroni salads and fruit salads, are available for sale at most supermarkets. The only problem that you may find is that pre-made side dishes tend to be more expensive, when compared to preparing them yourself. Therefore, if you are looking to save money or if you only need a small amount of food, you may want to consider preparing your own side dishes.

 

It’s always a good idea to have a fair amount of snacks on hand. On hand snacks are ideal for camping adventures, especially for those who are actively participating in a number of outdoor activities. Dry snacks are the best choice to have for many reasons. Mostly because dry snacks are easy to eat on the go and they rarely ever leave a mess. Be aware of your selections because a lot of dry snacks are unhealthy. Look for dry snacks that are low in sugar or low in fat. These items may include, but should not be limited to, fruits, vegetables, sugar free cookies and nuts.

 

One other very important thing that you must consider is having enough water. Water is critical to have, for obvious reasons, especially during the summertime. Water, unlike many caffeinated beverages and sugary drinks, is a great way to stay hydrated. Unfortunately, without water many children and adults become dehydrated. Dehydration is a dangerous problem. That is why it is important to have water and other beverages on hand. In addition to traditional water, you or your family may also enjoy the taste of flavored water. For many, flavored water is a healthy, but tasty alternative to traditional drinking water.

 

By keeping the above mentioned points and suggestions in mind, you and your family are sure to have a great time on your next camping adventure. Whatever the occasion calls for, there are a number of different foods that can help make your next camping trip one of the best.

Hamilton Plans Contract Discussions Next Month With Four Large Insurance Companies

Hamilton Health Care System and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Georgia have reached an agreement to provide health care services for the University System of Georgia.

The agreement will allow any of the 50,000 employees and retirees of the university system, including those at Dalton State College, to receive care at either Hamilton Medical Center or Murray Medical Center as part of Blue Cross’ preferred provider organization (PPO) network. The agreement will also mean university employees and retirees will have access to more than 200 physicians in the area, according to Blue Cross.

In a statement, Blue Cross said Hamilton placed talks to cover all of Blue Cross’ PPO customers on hold on July 14. But Hamilton and Physicians Health Services, which represents almost all of the area’s doctors, say they will begin negotiations next month with Blue Cross and other major health insurance companies that may bring the hospitals and local doctors into those companies’ PPO networks.

“We are planning to start having language discussions, contract language discussions next month,” said David McCreery, president of Physicians Health Services. “That is the first step. Depending on how quickly they are willing to move on that, we are ready to proceed with at least the four major players in the marketplace.”

McCreery says those companies are Blue Cross Blue Shield, United Healthcare, Aetna and Cigna, the four largest health insurance companies nationwide.

“We plan to actively contact them, not just sit back and wait on them to call us,” he said.
Hamilton, and many local doctors, do not currently accept those major plans.

“We want the community to know we have heard the community’s request to access our services through a wider variety of insurance plans, and we are working hard to extend our relationship with Blue Cross and other national insurers,” said Hamilton CEO John Bowling.

Will having reached an agreement on university employees make it easier for Hamilton and Blue Cross to reach an overall agreement?

“Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Georgia has approached the two discussions independently of one another and does not feel that one discussion will impact the other,” Blue Cross said in the statement.

Bowling says that the university agreement might make it a bit easier since each side is now more familiar with each other’s concerns.

“The caveat would be that this is a Board of Regents matter. Therefore, they control it, not Blue Cross. Blue Cross just serves as a third party administrator. Blue Cross is not the payer there, and where Blue Cross is the payer, there’s likely to be some different contractual language,” he said.

Hamilton and Physicians Health Services say clinical integration — developing a common set of clinical protocols for all physicians — will be key to contract negotiations. They had set a deadline of July 31 to complete that process.

“The plan was to try to do that. It was really a deadline requested by the Chamber of Commerce. We are running a little behind that schedule. There have been some unanticipated difficulties with the information systems of the physicians,” said McCreery. “But we have made a lot of progress. We are getting real close to saying that we are clinically integrated. We’re trying to make sure the difficulties we have encountered don’t slow down our ability to engage in the contracting process.”
In April, several local business leaders sent a letter to Bowling asking for local health care providers to take part in a larger number of health insurance networks.
