You never know what could happen, so prepping a safety and survival plan ahead of time is crucial. When it comes to a long day on the trails or an emergency system at home, having an emergency food stash on hand is always a good idea. With a wide variety of freeze-dried food, there's always a delicious dish ready to be made. You can prepare all your favorite health-conscious and comfort foods, including eggs, pasta or chicken and rice. There are even different breakfast, lunch and dinner options, so you can plan out the whole day. Decide between sausage or cereal for breakfast, stir up some creamy soup for lunch, create a hearty beef stroganoff dinner and then end on a sweet note with some freeze-dried ice cream. Just because you're roughing it, doesn't mean you have to sacrifice yummy food!
On the trails and in bad weather, resources like electricity and gas are at a minimum and simple-to-make entres make life a lot easier. When you're cooking for the whole family or hiking team, big buckets help make serving and prep a breeze for large groups of people. If you're just cooking for one, single-serve pouches are easy to use; most survival foods just require you to add some water. Stocking up in high quantities and multipacks helps ensure you never run out of food, so you can keep every mouth fed.
