Sometimes, especially when arranging meals for others, I use freeze-dried meals. Expensive and not often the most calories/ounce selection, but convenient.
Some can be tasty. But voted (among our group of tasters on last week’s trip) as the “Worst Freeze-Dried Meal Ever” is Natural High’s Kung Pao Shrimp. It was deemed barely suitable for fish food, even among starving backpackers.
