TheEpicenter.com sent me three awesome products to review. I received Mountain House freeze dried veggies. In the past I have personally purchased Mountain House freeze dried ice cream for camping trips and I truly love it so I was super excited to try the veggies.

I was lucky enough to get a #10 can of corn, a pouch of green beans and a pouch of peas. These pouches are thee coolest products particularly for backpacking. They are super light weight making them perfect if your are packing everything you need on your back. Each pouch is 2 servings and is loaded with all the nutrients you need and would be getting if you were lugging heavy cans.

Cooking them is a snap and does not require much at all.

It only needs 1 and 1/2 cup boiling water.

All you do its boil up your water over a fire or cook stove and pour it directly into the bag. I added a few spices for flavoring and then zipped up the bag. You just let it sit for 7-9 minutes and then unzip and serve. The spices that I added totally soaked into the veggies so feel free to add your very favorite spices as you wish.
