The majority of my food storage revolves around common foods found in grocery stores all over the country. Storing what I eat and eating what store is what I practice for the most part. I have recently begun purchasing freeze dried and dehydrated foods to supplement.
On a shopping trip to a local “Mart” recently, I came across a couple of products that peaked my interest. These are complete meals that only require water to prepare.
The first one I came across was the Banquet Homestyle Bakes. The link takes you to Amazon which actually sells these meals through a subscription/delivery service. Check the link for more information on this product. These are a “just add water” product. There are several flavors and many contain meat – which for me is a bonus. They are relatively inexpensive as well at around $3.00. Shelf life is in excess of a year- I suspect much longer is the reality.
The next product I saw was the Betty Crocker Helper Complete Meals. This link also goes to Amazon and they offer a subscription/delivery service on these as well. These also from what I have seen are “just add water” and many varieties contain meat. Storage life is in excess of a year. Price – same at around $3.00.
These two products look to be a good addition to my food storage program. Some plus’s are light weight, simple to prepare – just add water, and pretty inexpensive.
I have not tried them yet – will report when I do.
Take care all –
