Psychologists say that food is not love, but they are so terribly wrong. Case in point: Mountain House Chicken Teriyaki at high camp. I admit that food choices are personal, but in my opinion Mountain House entrees are head and shoulders above the competition.
I’ve tried AlpineAire, Backpacker’s Pantry and some of those organic disasters (spam is organic, right?) but they don’t love me long time like Mountain House.
Remember that with serving sizes your mileage may vary. You’ll see recommendations for 5,000 calories a day for high-altitude mountaineering, but for me it’s virtually impossible to choke down that many calories. Use the nutritional information to plan accordingly.
