Food preparation during camping can consume time which should have been spent for good conversations with all the family members. With the availability of delicious foods that are ready to be served with just simple preparations needed, such as the Chef's Banquet food storage, quality time will be spent with each member to hear with their day to day experiences and stories which is not possible during regular days because everyone is busy with their own tasks and activities. This is also the time when they can play and sing together more than they do with other people each day. Camping is also very helpful especially with families who have some of their children going to boarding schools and universities. Keeping the ties between siblings is very important because knowing that even if they are growing up separate from each other, their bond will be stronger as they grow older and have their own separate lives and as they will have their own families, as well.
Bonding with each household member through outdoor activities will be more fun if shared with delightful and easy to prepare foods like Chef's Banquet ARK 1 month food storage supply. The food will be enough to feed the whole family during the camping days and it takes out the hassle of all the food preparation involved in the customary way. Camping gives the family time to enjoy each other's company while taking a breath of fresh air. This is the time for them to combine recreation and relaxation which will truly serve the purpose of bringing each member of the family closer to each other. Reminiscing their moments together within their homes during camping will make the camping really fun. Later when they go home, their camping experience will add value to their family's experiences together. Whenever unexpected weather changes occur during the camping adventure, there might be a possibility that the family would be stranded. Having food storage for survival at hand will put everyone at ease and be worry-free being with each other in troubled times outdoors knowing that they will be able to get by as the bad weather ceases and just bring home another good and fun memories shared with the family.

I can't say I was a huge fan of the taste. My 6 year old daughter was ok with it until she found a "chunk" that hadn't been mixed well enough when we were rehydrating it. The rest of the family thought it was pretty good. It was very easy to prepare and serve. I would be willing to add some Wise food to my storage but I will have to try some different varieties first.

I can speak from personal experience and say these things are great. I suggest putting one in each vehicle and pack you own. They are 3600 calories per package divided up into nine 400 calorie "biscuits." My kids love them and they contain vitamins needed to survive as well as calories.

When you are storing seafood (especially fish) in your freezer, you would do well to remember that fish is not meat. Once you establish that storing frozen fish and frozen meat have very different requirements, it will be easy for you to learn how to store fish perfectly so that it is fresh when you take it out for cooking.
Fish is usually more expensive than regular meat, and is amongst the most perishable types of food in our diet. This is why when we bring fish home from the store; there are a few things we must do. These include:
1. You Have To Keep Your Fish on Ice
It is essential to keep your fish on ice, even if you stash it in your freezer. This is because fish naturally swim in water which has temperatures much colder than air. This has caused fish to adapt to freezing water temperatures, which is why ice will help prevent the fish from rotting.
You will need to place your fish with its back fins facing up as if the fish is still swimming to make sure that it is iced evenly.
2. Place It In A Large Plastic Container:
Locate a large plastic container for your fish. If you can find a slightly smaller container to fit inside the larger one, you would be even better off at keeping your fish fresher than average. If you have two containers held in place together, you should drill/punch as many holes as possible in the bottom of the smaller container, which will hold your fish and ice. The smaller container will touch the bottom one, so you need to keep it elevated somehow.
3. Storage for Different Cuts of Fish
When you buy fresh fish, make sure that you store it in the deepest and coldest part of your refrigerator. To make the most out of your fish, try to cook it the very same day that you purchase it for maximum freshness. Never store your fish in water, as it would affect its texture and flavor. Use ice instead.
When you purchase whole fish, take it out of its wrapper immediately, wash it thoroughly and store it in the container(s) as mentioned above. If you do not have two containers, try setting it over ice in a colander which you can place in a larger bowl to catch dripping water. Make sure that the fish is buried in ice for maximum freshness and put it in the freezer.
When you buy fillets, you should always keep them in the wrapper so that skinless fish is protected. Set the entire package on ice, and cover it in ice to retain freshness.
When you purchase Shellfish, always take them out in a bowl and cover the bowl with a damp towel. Then place the towel-covered bowl in the coldest part of your freezer.
4. Important Things to Remember When Storing Fish
Here are some essential things that you must note when storing fish:
* The longer fish stays in the freezer, the more its quality gets compromised.
* Raw fish remains at higher quality after freezing in comparison to cooked fish.
* If your frozen fish is packaged, it can stay fresh for a longer time, hence only be concerned if the packaging has been exposed to air.
* Keep an eye out for discoloration and odor. Rancid fish looks disgusting; it will grow green and yellow and stink.

O. is for overheating. Avoid becoming overheated in cold weather. If your body gets overheated, you will start to sweat. This can cause you and your clothes to become wet due to perspiration. This needs to be avoided during cold weather.
L. is for layers. Always dress in layers of clothing that fit loosely. You can add additional layers of clothing if you become cold and you can remove extra layers of clothing if your body begins to overheat. Air space between the layers of your clothing will also help further insulate your body from the cold weather.
D. is for dry. Make an effort to keep yourself and your clothes dry. Items of clothing that dry quickly or wick moisture, such as polypropylene or wool, are good choices to help you stay dry. Use water-proof and “breathable” items to keep rain, snow and wind out but which will also allow perspiration to leave your body. This will also help to keep you dry. You should also make sure all of your essential gear items are kept dry. Give special attention to gear items that need to be protected from cold temperatures. Make sure those items are also well insulated.
