    MREs are fine, but when we were in Iraq the last time, it was all we ate for a month and a half...These are calorie dense, and it becomes a nightmare pretty quickly.

    “I’m gonna have to do it” lmao
    Being in the military and being put in a situation we have to eat these for months, these are not that great😂 having only to eat these sometimes we don’t even get to heat them up and they get repetitive so the hot sauce comes in they don’t feel so good coming out if you know what I mean lmao

    Gianna Marie 6 months ago +29

    Atleast you guys got to heat them up.. in the field sometimes we dont have time for that so youre just eating cold chunkiness. And to stay hydrated you dump your entire dang salt packet into your main mean to help retain water. My favorite is the mexican style chicken stew bc you get reeces pieces

    • Gianna Marie
      Gianna Marie 6 months ago +1

      Eugene Martin ive tried that. Doing the whole thing just makes me feel like im drinking the ocean i usually mix a bit into my main meal and even some with the electrolyte powder because the sweetness of that kinda masks the saltiness. Anyway to get it down i guess 🤷🏻‍♀️ lol

    • Eugene Martin
      Eugene Martin 6 months ago +3

      Using the salt in the Main ruins it. Just knock it back with some water to get it in your system.
