AlpineAire Foods Rice Burrito Bowl with Beef

rated 5 of 5 stars A tasty, filling meal you can be nom nom nomming in 15 minutes. Ingredients are all FOOD, no added chemicals—all minerals and nutrients are naturally occurring in the ingredients. Received as part of my Reviewer of the Month prize package. Today I went snowshoeing for a couple hours, and decided to bring along the AlpineAire Rice Burrito Bowl Flavored With Beef and eat it for review. From the pouch front: Cilantro lime rice flavored with real beef, black beans, corn, red & green bell peppers… Full review

Patagonia Provisions Organic Breakfast Grains

rated 2.5 of 5 stars A fully organic hot breakfast cereal, packing 400 calories and 7 grams of protein per package, this is the earthiest of cereals I’ve tried. I didn’t care for the taste. This review is for the Tart Apple flavor of this product line. Ingredients: Organic Toasted Buckwheat, Organic Cracked Barley, Organic Rolled Oats, Organic Freeze Dried Apple, Organic Nonfat Dry Milk, Organic Flax Seed, Organic Ground Rice Hulls, Salt, Organic Sunflower Oil Nutrition: Serving Size 1/2 cup (57g) Servings Per… Full review

Nomad Nutrition Indian Red Lentil Stew

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A tasty Indian stew that reminds me of a classic (but slightly less spicy) Dal. As I’ve written with the other Nomad reviews: this is my new favorite brand of dehydrated backpacking food. Ingredients: Potatoes, Carrots, Red Lentils*, Coconut Milk*, Onions, Peas, Sundried Tomatoes*, Olive Oil*, Garlic*, Spices*, Sea Salt*.   *Certified Organic Ingredient. Nutrition: (for the 100-gram package) Calories 680, Carbs 93g, Sugars (10 g), Protein 24g Prologue: When I was messaging back and forth with… Full review

Patagonia Provisions Organic Savory Grains Mushroom + KAMUT

rated 3.5 of 5 stars This is a tasty organic grain blend with a nice earthy flavor and good protein (15 grams per package). I think it's best suited as a side dish. Fishermen, this would sit nicely beside a fire-roasted brook trout! Ingredients: Organic Kamut Khorasan Bulgur Wheat, Organic Bulgur Wheat, Organic Dehydrated Portabella Mushrooms, Organic Shiitake Mushroom Powder, Organic Red Quinoa, Organic Dehydrated Chopped Onion, Salt, Organic Yeast Extract, Organic Onion Powder, Organic Ground Rice Hulls, Organic Sunflower… Full review

Nomad Nutrition Irish Shepherd's Pie

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A very familiar tasting and well-balanced meal, this one is like the backpacking equivalent of comfort food. A great bonus is the 225 calories per ounce which is excellent caloric density for carrying on a long trek. As I’ve written with the other Nomad reviews: this is my new favorite brand of dehydrated backpacking food. Ingredients: Potatoes, Green Lentils*, Carrots, Coconut Milk*, Onions, Peas, Corn, Sundried Tomatoes*, Olive Oil*, Garlic*, Spices*, Sea Salt*. *Certified Organic Ingredient. Full review

Patagonia Provisions Organic Red Bean Chili

rated 3.5 of 5 stars A fully organic chili with high protein and a flavor profile dominated by red chili, this meal will fill you up and provide good energy, but may not tantalize your taste buds (unless you really dig a strong red chili flavor). Ingredients: Organic Red Beans, Organic Pinto Beans, Organic Dehydrated Tomato Powder, Organic Dehydrated Diced Tomato, Organic Ground Red Chili, Organic Dehydrated Carrots, Organic Dehydrated Red Bell Pepper, Salt, Organic Ground Rice Hulls, Organic Ground Cumin, Organic Dehydrated… Full review

Mountain House Hearty Stew with Beef

rated 5 of 5 stars This beef stew tempts the tummy and the tastebuds! I occasionally have the opportunity to test amazing products from incredible companies in exchange for a review, and this time, I had the pleasure of trying out Mountain House Beef Stew, but on top of the product testing, I had a culinary challenge! I was asked to create a new dish from this freeze dried meal, and my tastebuds were rewarded! This beef stew is a medley of tummy pleasing comfort foods wrapped into a meal that's perfect for a blustery… Full review

Nomad Nutrition Kathmandu Curry

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A tasty curry dish that surprised me with its freshness; this one doesn’t taste rehydrated. I’ve never knowingly had a Nepalese-style curry, but if this is representative, I’m a fan. I just wish there was more in the package. As I’ll mention in all the Nomad reviews: I consider this the best brand of dehydrated, prepackaged food I’ve tried to date. It’s an expensive but high quality product. Prologue: When I was messaging back and forth with Alicia (Trailspace Co-Founder and Editor)… Full review

Nomad Nutrition Hungarian Goulash

rated 4.5 of 5 stars A delicious and simple dehydrated meal with good caloric density (176 calories per ounce) for backpackers that prepares easily and satisfies. There is a naturalness to this dish (and this brand in general) that makes it seem as if this is some long-standing favorite food, even though I had never had it before. This brand is the best dehydrated food I’ve tried to date. It’s too pricey to be a staple for me, but worth it for that special trip or occasion. Prologue: When I was messaging back and… Full review
