As part of this week's show on War Zone Eating, I ate three Meals Ready to Eat (MREs). Here are some photos of the food and the nutritional info, as well as some of my thoughts on each dish.

In Sporkful 148, Dan speaks with veterans about making military Meals Ready to Eat more palatable, and reports on his own MRE research. Plus the vets share great stories about their best war zone meals.
