  1. Sopakco Beef Ravioli MRE Taste Test

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Went out to the local sand pit to do some target shooting. While I was there, I had lunch of a Sopakco Beef Ravioli MRE. This is probably the worst MRE I have ever eaten.
  2. Homemade MREs for diabetics??

    Food and water
    Been working to make my own MREs for my BOB and pantry and my biggest struggle is finding food with low enough carbs and sugars to support my pre-diabetes but with enough carbs and protein to be supportive in a SHTF situation. My doc told me to cut carbs and sugar and eat more meat and veggies...
  3. SCORE! or Not? Eversafe MREs $1.50 each!

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    We have a local homesteading group we call "Farmies" (it's on FB). We get together about once per month with other local farmers and homesteaders, and some city folk interested in unplugging even just a little. We've covered a lot of topics in past months -- foraging, mushrooming, cooking over...
  4. Dimensions of an MRE (Non field stripped)

    Food and water
    I'm trying to figure out what MOLLE pouches I will need to carry an MRE, non field stripped. Does anyone have the dimensions of one? I can't seem to find it anywhere online, and I don't have the money to buy a 12 case of 'em to check at the time.
  5. Dehydrated and freeze dried for meals

    Food and water
    I'm having a hard time finding recipes for single serving meals that I can store in 1 quart Mylar bags. Kind of like the just and water mountain house meals. I know I can pack rice (what kind is best?) and pasta (angle hair best?), oatmeal mixes, and seasonings but really haven't found much...
  6. MRE's

    General Discussion
    Can someone please tell me if there is some sort of trick to getting the meal heaters to work? I have tried samples from 3 different sources and none of the chemical heaters worked. I contacted my army buddy and he said (and I quote) "MRE's made by the lowest bidder... no hot food for you...
  7. Well, you can live on it... but it tastes like ****

    Food and water
    I'm wondering what would be the best source of food to carry for my 72 hour bag. An additional note: I would be carrying for both myself and my 3 year old. MRE's are very easy, if expensive, and seem like the top pick. But is there something better out there? Or would a "snacking" approach...

  10. How long is "shelf" life of MREs & other foods in a hot car?

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hi all, We've got emergency bags in our vehicles, but I'm concerned about the effects of the heat inside the car during summer effecting the "shelf life" of the food & water we have in the bags. During the summer months, it can get over 100 degrees F. We have 7 MREs (entrees, sides, &...

  12. Why Buy MRE's?

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    So this is just my opinion to play the devils advocate, if nothing else. Feel free to argue otherwise :-) . Why waste money on an MRE? First of all, after eating like 6 billion MRE meals in the field and over seas I can say that they officially suck and you never get any damn jalapeno cheddar...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion

  16. Homemade MREs - no water needed

    DIY - Do It Yourself
    I'm putting together some homemade MREs, with an emphasis on not needing water to prepare any of the items. Reason for this is in case water is tight when MREs are consumed. I also would like for the food to be shelf stable for at least a 1-2 years. I will fit everything into vacuum sealed bags...

    Good Day, In case some people don't know or a reminder for people who have heard of the above, I noticed there pieces of wrapped food called emergency rations (EMR) and meals ready to eat (MRE). EMR's are thick squares of food that can be had for relatively inexpensive prices. Their shelf...

    Food and water
    For a few years now I've been worried about the decline of our country, and with recent events it looks like time is getting short. I've only been prepping for roughly a year now so I'm not even close to where I would like to be prep wise. With my budget and timeline I think we have, I'm...
