Homemade MRE, intro video

Some decades ago, the military created the Meal Ready to Eat, aka MRE. The concept was that everything in the pouch could be eaten with minimal (if any) preparation. Over the years, these meals have improved significantly. Nonetheless, there are those of us that like to create our own, tailored to our tastes or specific requirements. Hence, I came up with a name: Shipwreck Rations. Here’s a video introducing my concept.

Over the coming weeks, you’ll see a total of four individual meals and two 24HR packs. Each one is truly an MRE, meaning you can eat them as is. There’s also a heating method, either flameless ration heater or micro stove, to warm them up. These are useful to have on hand for disaster both man-made and natural, as well as camping, bicycle treks, flying safaris, and much more. Keep one or two at work in case you have to shelter in place. Either way, it is better to be prepared than to be hungry! Enjoy every meal.

XMRE, Menu 4, video review

Here’s another review of a “meal ready to eat.” This one is made by XMRE Meals, and it is Menu 4. Here’s the video:

I have to say, these meals are quite tasty. There’s plenty of calories and decent nutrition as well. I prefer them to the freeze dried type of food. ┬áIf you’re putting together a kit for a natural disaster, XMRE’s would be a good addition. I will be reviewing a few more in the near future, so check back frequently.
