Do you have MRE’s in your food storage?
Are you prepared in the event you have to leave in a hurry? Do you have a Bug-Out -Bag or a 72-hour kit? These packs are made in advance with the intention of being able to grab something when you are in a hurry and you need to have things with you that will sustain you for at least 72 hours. At Common Sense Homesteading, there are some great tips on what to include in your bag. But what about food? You could go to the store and buy some MREs but they can be kind of spendy and not necessarily tailored to your taste buds. Why not have some MREs that you can make yourself?
By making your own MREs, you not only cut costs but the food will be something that is made just for you by you so you won’t get any surprises in the taste category. This is an especially attractive option if you have finicky eaters in your care.
If you were to make some MREs today, what would you include in it? Share your ideas with us!
