All of the above [the last post http://www.preparesurvivethrive.us/bob-food/ ] can be eaten on the run without cooking or heating. The following needs to be cooked for best use.
Ramen noodle soup comes in packages that contain 2 servings – sure it does and the tooth fairy is fake too.- each serving is 190 calories [so the package actually contains 380 calories]. 5 packages a day gets you about 1900 calories. The best way that I have found to cook this is to break the noodle puck into quarters into a canteen cup, add the flvor packet, water to cover. If available and desired add table spoon each of dry carrots, onions and maybe garlic. Bring to a simmer stirring often, by now your meal is ready. Cooking it this way saves fuel and time. This also encourages you to consume more fluids which your body needs. A friend years ago subsisted on ramen noodles and chicken patties for 2 years.
Home made Rice packets aka rice a roni. ½ cup rice [or brown rice] 1 tablespoon each of dry carrots, onions and instant beans. Seasonings to taste. Store in a snack sized baggy until ready to cook. Add packet to 1.5 cups water in a canteen cup and place covered on to fire, bring to boil x 5 – 10 minutes set near fire to finish cooking, stir and eat. This is about 400 calories. IF you have some jerky or other meat you can add some to this meal if you want.
You can buy or make similar meal packages like Knorr sides or great value brand. These provide between 400 – 500 calories per package as is. Follow the directions. Cost is about $1.00 each.
This covers rice and pasta; potatoes go good for this application too.
Seasonings which may come in handy are the normal ones of salt, pepper and ketchup. Grated parmesan cheese, salt free seasoning kinda like Mrs Dash, Chili powder are all great and each one costs $1.00 from Dollar Tree.
