There are times when trips to the grocery store aren't easy. For example just recently most of the North East was out of power for 3 days or so. You can't go to the grocery store and making meals isn't easy.
Well if you have a gas stove and running water eFoods is what you need. They have meals that are for emergency meal planning.
With all of them you just add boiling water and cook on the stove.
This isn't the type of food we typically eat, but it wouldn't be bad to have a month's worth of these babies around JUST IN CASE. You never know what might happen.
We received a sample kit with 3 of their meals to try.
We got Tortilla Soup, Cheesy Chicken and Rise Casserole and Creamy Potato Soup
First we tried the cheesy chicken and rice. This was super easy to make. You boil water on the stove and then add the meal, stir and bring back to a boil. Then cover and simmer for a certain amount of time until water is absorbed and rice is soft. That's it. I think it was like 25 minutes. It was very good. It tasted just like a home cooked meal.
Unfortunately we have an electric stove, so if the power goes out we won't be able to make this. But we do have a grill outside, AND it has a burner, so we could always make food on it if need be.
The other 2 soups were very good as well. They all tasted home cooked, they weren't gross tasting and they were things that even Avery liked and gobbled up, so that's always a bonus since she can be picky.
Each package says it's 4 servings. UM not quite. Considering they are all well balanced meals with veggies, starch and protein. Since you don't need anything extra this is far from a full meal. SO eFoods says that they are 2 servings each which is much more reasonable. There was just enough for Avery and I to eat. We made these up when Jon had his late night union meetings so he didn't have to eat at home. There wouldn't have been enough for the 3 of us. So if you're cooking for your family 2-3 packages of each would be ideal!
2 packages plus a salad and maybe some rolls or something would be PERFECT!
Overall though they were easy to make and the quality was great. Only thing that weirds me out is they don't expire for like 20 years. So you know the preservatives in them are pretty ridiculous and they have long ingredient lists too. But they are great for a backup solution.
They have all meals. Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner
Price: A 1 week supply is $50. This includes 8 servings of Almond Coconut Granola, 4 servings of Creamy Potato Soup and 4 servings of Tortilla Soup and then 4 servings of White Cheddar Sauce Pasta, 4 servings of Veggie Beef Stew and 4 servings of Mashed Potatoes. Also includes as a bonus 8 servings whey milk and 5 servings chocolate pudding.
They say 1 week supply, but this would probably last 5 days because they're servings just aren't that big!
They go all the way up to a 1 year pack. The 1 year family food pack is $6,000
