Did you make the resolution to eat a little healthier and use your gym membership in 2014? Well, we can’t make you go to the gym, but here at Beckley’s Camping Center, we think that eating healthy and the RV lifestyle go hand in hand. Try these delicious and healthy recipes in your RV instead of pulling over for fast food, and that New Year’s resolution will seem a little more achievable.
