M.R.E – A quick, easy, calorie packed meal on the go.
If you’re like me, you like to find ways to make your life as simple as possible. This approach can be vital in an emergency. But in addition to simple and easy, when it comes to food you also want to make sure that you’re eating right and getting the vitamins, minerals and vital calories needed to give you the energy to cope with that emergency. These are exactly the needs the modern day MRE is designed to address.
MRE’s are not only a great option for an emergency, but also for camping, hiking, or other forms of outdoor activities. Personally, a MRE Ultimate Self-Heating Full Meal is my top choice when I hit the trail. When a sandwich and some trail mix were my common meal for out door activities, I always ended up burning through that food within a matter of hours. Now, when I have my MRE Full Meal it provides me with enough snacks as well as a hearty meal to keep me going all day long.
There were originally designed to address the military’s need for a quick and easy meal for personnel in the field. But are now also available to the general public.
On a daily basis I speak with former men and women who has served our great nation and have discovered The Ready Store and it’s great selection of MRE’s. Most military love MRE’s and The Ready Store is a place where they can purchase a dependable meal and enjoy the same great meals that they had when they were in the service.
If you have any friends or family that have served in the military, talk with them about MRE’s and see what they think. It might be interesting to get their take on MRE’s, ask them how they think they compare to Freeze-Dried food, (another popular, on the go emergency food option).
