Wild Zora Mountain Beef Stew

This product has no gluten and is a paleo meal. Organic ingredients packed with 410 calories and 37 grams of protein.

I added Himalayan salt… Full review

Patagonia Provisions Organic Green Lentil Soup

Excellent balance of flavors and a delightful texture. I really enjoy this soup; it's probably my favorite on the trail. It has bulgur wheat along with the lentils, which gives it a great texture. The flavor is quite good, although I add just a touch of garlic powder, onion powder, and black pepper to punch it up.

Good To-Go New England Corn Chowdah

With complex flavors and an intoxicating aroma, this meal is particularly well-suited for winter backcountry trips. C'mon, who doesn't love a good chowder after a day in the snow?

To give you a little background on how and in what conditions I tested this meal, below is a description of two separate tests.   Testing Meal #1 - After a 3.5-mile sunset hike in chilly,… Full review

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

Patagonia Provisions Organic Green Lentil Soup

A very simple organic soup, spiced right, that summons the memory of Americanized Indian food to my palate. It’s a little pricey for dehydrated soup but a worthy splurge. Ingredients Organic Dehydrated Lentils, Organic Bulgur Wheat, Organic Dehydrated Chopped Onion, Salt, Organic Spices, Organic Dehydrated Green Bell Pepper, Organic Dehydrated Minced Garlic, Organic Dehydrated Red Bell Pepper, Organic Onion Powder, Organic Ground Rice Hulls, Organic Yeast Extract, Organic Sunflower Oil Nutrition… Full review

Mountain House Seafood Chowder

This stuff is awesome! Why don't they sell it in 2-person servings anymore? This is my all time favorite camping/backpacking food! Unfortunately Mountain House no longer sells it in anything other than a 10 serving can.  Full review
