Food for the Thought: MRE is not just a meal

It's no secret that we all want to be able to eat more, but we also don't want to go hungry. The good news is that with the help of Meal Ready to Eat (MRE) , you can have all the convenience and nutritional benefits of fast food without sacrificing your health and wallet.

MRE is a military food ration that's been around since the early 1900s. It's convenient, economical, healthy, sufficient, and nutritional. Here are some of the things that make MREs so great:

It's compact. MREs are compact enough to fit in your pocket or purse. You can carry them on long hikes, road trips or bike rides without taking up too much space in your bag. It's convenient. MREs are easy to use and don't require any preparation. Just open the pouch and eat! The contents are already prepared so all you need to do is open, heat and enjoy.

It’s portable. You can take your MRE with you wherever you go! Whether you're going camping or to an interview for a new job, a MRE is always ready for you when you are. They're nutritious. MREs provide you with all the nutrients that your body needs to function effectively. The food inside is high in protein, carbohydrates and fat so it's great for muscle building or weight loss diets. You can even use MREs as a snack if you're on the go!

It’s easy to prepare. A lot of MREs come with their own utensils, so there's no need to worry about eating them cold or having to figure out how to eat one by yourself if your friends aren't around (like when they leave town but don't tell anyone). And because they're pre-cooked, they don't require any cooking at all—just open them up and start eating!

MREs are a wise choice when you have to have something on the move, or when you will be far from a store and need to ration food. They are not meant for everyday meals for adults, unless someone can not boil water or open a can of stewed tomatoes. However, adults can use them if it is necessary, especially if they are out camping
