Love hot food, but hate cooking? Good news: Now you can prepare a piping-hot dinner in minutes. Just open this bag and pour a few ounces of liquid into a separate heating pouch (even pee works in a pinch). The flavors are decent, like Omeals‘ Chicken Creole with Brown Rice, which has a reasonable 410mg of sodium. But the convenience comes at a price: Even if you eat every bite, there’s a lot of trash to pack out. It’s great for stoveless overnights, hypothermic emergencies, or if nothing else, stashing in your car for a warm meal the second you get back to the trailhead. From $27 per 4-pack; 8 oz.
