Aiming to offer healthy, organic, and tasty backcountry food, Nomad Nutrition has brought a wide range of dehydrated meals to the market. Born in Canada from the desire to create something that’s healthier, more nourishing, and devoid of GMOs and excess, they offer an intriguing alternative that’s worth taking a look at.
Prep is pretty straight forward. Simply boil water, add it to the meal and wait. 7-10 minutes later a hot, fresh, flavor rich meal is ready and waiting. The meals come in a wide, uniquely diverse range including red lentil stew, curries, and Sheppard’s pie. The meals I tried pack an average of about 350-400 calories per package, and typically contain less than 500 mg of sodium (a nice change of pace). I’ve found the red lentil stew and Kathmandu curry both to be pretty tasty, with a nod to the more flavorful curry dish. The meals re-hydrated pretty well, but the peas in the red lentil did take a bit longer to soften than the package suggested (10 minutes max). I gave it about 15 minutes and it was good to go.
While they do come with the typical organic price penalty, with meals costing about $15 USD each, it’s a worthy investment if you’re committed to avoiding GMOs, mounds of preservatives and want something that provides a filling meal without being fed anything that’s not instantly identifiable as actual food.
