Benefits & Description

Cook & Simmer Meals | Long Shelf-Life | Most Affordable Option

Food storage made easy
EasyPrep food storage is simple: 1 person + 1 bucket = 1 month of food. Storage friendly
With a shelf life of 25 years and packaged in a stack-able bucket, the EasyPrep line will store efficiently. Always be ready
Whether you shelter in place or need to be on the go these buckets are convenient for each situation. Convenience in an emergency
Each entree is packaged into a zip-lock mylar pouch. Some just require adding hot water while other meals may need to bring to boil then reduce heat, cover, and simmer on the stove top for 20-30 minutes. Food storage has never been easier, more convenient, and affordable. With EasyPrep food storage, it's simple to know how much you need; 1 person + 1 bucket = 1 month. Don't worry about using a confusing food storage calculator to try and figure out how much food storage you should store for your family.

Our Simply Essentials bundle comes with breakfast, lunch, and dinner meals that range from macaroni and cheese and Santa Fe Beans & Rice to Creamy Wheat and Instant Oatmeal. Along with the meals are sides like mashed potatoes that you can season to taste and long grain white rice. Wash it all down with fortified orange drink mix (think of a drink like Tang but comes with vitamin fortification). For a complete list of items in this kit look at the Waht's In the Box tab on this page and click on it.
Would you like to add variety to your meals? EasyPrep buckets also come in freeze-dried fruit and vegetable variety buckets. Got a sweet tooth? There is a dessert bucket as well. We haven't even talked about our Carb Craver kit which includes a variety of sides to augment calories in a cost effective way. Wash it all down with the Milky Way kit that has milk and chocolate milk or go with the Beverage Buffet kit that has both milks and our fortified orange drink mix and fruit punch electrolyte drink mixes. Like all EasyPrep kits, they provide a 1 month for 1 person, though you are always share!

All of the kits withing the EasyPrep line stack on top of each other for maximum storing convenience. Did you know these rectangular buckets save over 20% of your space versus the traditional round bucket? That's right, aside from stacking, they nest up next to each other closely, allowing for the most efficient use of space.
