*MRE's are not tops on nutritional charts but they are convenient, have a long shelf life, need no refrigeration nor any special preparation. They have a high sodium count so if you are on a salt-restricted diet, these might not be the best choice. Again though, we are only looking at three meals. More MRE information.
