Green Belly Meal2Go – Review

January 29, 2016 aptprepper 1

I am always looking for various types of foods to add to our food storage. When I received in invitation to try Green Belly Meal2Go, I thought, “Why not?” A nutritionally balanced meal bar would make a good addition to food storage. Plus, I am always looking for lightweight meals that I can take backpacking or hiking. […]

Review of Chicken Fajita MRE from Meal Kit Supply

April 6, 2013 aptprepper 1

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I’ve been having a back log of product and book reviews, both on items I purchased on my own, and review samples sent by the company or publisher.  It takes me a while to get the reviews done, as I like to read/test each one individually before I post anything about it.  I usually post on Monday, Wednesdays and Fridays, so on Saturdays I will do product and books reviews. Meal Kit Supply […]

July 28, 2012 aptprepper 0

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I received a sample of Legacy Premium’s Beans and Rice Enchilada entree. Here is what is looks like in the package. The instructions look easy enough:  Boil water, stir in the product, lower the heat and let it simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring every few minutes. I followed the instructions and tested it after 15 minutes.  I prefer a softer texture so I left it simmering for five more minutes.  Then I let it […]

More Fun with Freeze Dried Food

September 26, 2011 aptprepper 9

Yesterday I posted about pan frying the Thrive Dehydrated Roast Beef.  This was the “if I am out in the wilderness and have no other ingredients” part of the test. In today’s post I wanted to see if this is a product that I would stock on a normal basis, as a possible ingredient for a quick dinner, or as an emergency meal when the power is out. I started out the same way:  rehydrate the beef in some hot […]

September 1, 2011 aptprepper 8

By:  Clay Good day fellow preppers. Bernie has been so gracious to allow me to post reviews on products and ideas to help fellow apartment preppers.

I have been financially prepping longer than with supplies, but all the same I have been researching and continuously revising several plans for different scenarios. I have learned through my hunting, fishing and outdoor […]

Ever Tried Powdered Eggs?

July 28, 2011 aptprepper 10

This post is by Bernie Carr, apartmentprepper.com I have to admit I was very skeptical about this latest food experiment.  I can always tell by the spongy look when those free breakfast buffets at the hotel are serving powdered eggs.   So when my husband suggested we try opening up emergency can to make sure we can eat it I was very hesitant about it. Today I finally got around to trying it.   The instructions say, mix 1/4 cup of powdered […]

Is Pet Food “Fit for Human Consumption?”

July 13, 2011 aptprepper 15

We watched the recent episode of Dual Survival, “ROAD TO NOWHERE” where Dave and Cody were stuck in the Maine wilderness.  They had to survive on items they found in a broken down truck.  One of the items they salvaged was a can of dog food.  It was mentioned that although unappetizing and gross to look at, pet food is suppose to be “fit for human consumption” and they proceeded to eat some of it and use part of it […]
