Emergency Food Rations
MRE's, The difference
We've all heard of MRE's that are used by the military in the U.S.A. They aren't bad and if you have the separate heater for them then you can have a warm meal. If you want long lasting, 3 to 5 years, meals that taste good and have all the extras, here's a great alternative. Why are Heater Meals better for you than MRE's?
Longer lasting, great taste, reasonable cost and you'll always have good food with you for an emergency. Link below......
Here's some differences between the MRE's and Heater Meals you should be aware of:
MRE's were designed for military personal that young and constantly physically stressed where as civilians are not and do not require the higher calories, higher sodium, and higher carbohydrates.
Compared to other meal options Heater Meals have 35% to 70% less sodium.
MRE's have 8 ounce main portions compared to 12 ounce portions for Heater Meals.
Heater Meals has 4 different styles of meals plus different entrees. These are complete meals unlike the MRE's and all come with a heater. Heater Meals 3 is the most well rounded meal you'll find anywhere that gives the recommended daily allowances of protein and fiber.

In the field
Don't do this! The heater for the meal gets really hot! You'll have to let it cool down to eat it. It could damage the paint on your vehicle. After extensive use of these Heater Meals we've come to the conclusion that they are the best tasting product. MRE's don't even come close. At $5.50 each you can't go wrong and they could save your life. And if nothing else you'll always have a good meal with you when you're out in the desert.
