Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great starter paddler's soups for DASH diets Most trail food has too much sodium for those on a DASH (Dietary Alternative to Stop Hypertension) diets. Am delighted that REI has added the Harmony House lines to their camping foods. With only a short time to prepare for extended paddling trips, I got the box and vacuum sealed a meal's portions for two of us. The soups are good and require much less cooking. Being omnivores, we also purchased dehydrated beef and chicken chunks to add to some of the packages. Even counting the cost of vacuum packing, the meals cost less than the usual trail meals and one can add additional herbs and spices (and salt) if needed. This is also a good starter kit for those considering dehydrating and packing your own trail food -- it gives you a sample of what is possible. Then you can go on and purchase the other Harmony House veggie kit for your own concoctions. Recommend highly, vacuum packer -- it compresses your meal into sizes which can fit nooks and crannies if your hatch space is limited. Have used other Harmony House dehydrated products and am very satisfied with their quality.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from better than you think it could be I opened a few of these after purchasing to see if they would be good for the trail. I had planned on just sampling and ended up eating all of the pouches I tried. Super delicious and easy. Only downside is the low calorie count it has.

The details state the packs are 6-8 servings each. Are they meant to cook all at once or are they easy to portion out for single use?

Asked by: BlackBear2015
The food packets are sealable and intended to be used for one meal or portioned out and sealed for later meals.

The manufacturer says cooking time is around 10-15 minutes (beginning when you add the food to water).
