Military MREs are terrible, they do have some good ones that are edible if you don't think of it but they are meant to last 5 years with all the sodium and other preservatives. Also, they actually cost more than a hot meal or a box lunch. Every month long exercise I've been on, I lose 10-15lbs because I only drink the coffee, eat the soup or choc. bars of the meals I hated and the odd one I could stomach. Usually brought my own soup, soldier fuel bars and pop tarts in a follow-on kit bag to help me through. Not to mention we use heater bags or pressure cookers to cook them, not very practical if you have access to a kitchen, better to make it fresh! Or as suggested Smart Start prepackaged meals.
