In any emergency situation, you need a meal that is easy to carry, easy to prepare, and gives you the nutrients necessary to survive. It should be something that can be made on the go with limited resources. In hurried scenarios, flavor is one of the last priorities — why worry about luxuries? With Legacy meal options, flavors and practicality don’t have to be mutually exclusive.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day
It’s vital to start your day off on the right foot. A mood-boosting breakfast from Legacy Premium not only gives you the fuel you need, but will also prepare you to tackle the day. Have you had a craving for old-fashioned pancakes? Has oatmeal with maple and brown sugar crossed your mind more than once since having limited resources? Legacy prepared meals will give you a little taste of home whether you’re in the backcountry, in an emergency shelter, or just a few blocks away.
Averaging 14g of protein and 515 calories per serving, Legacy breakfast foods keep you feeling full and replenished throughout the day. Rather than sacrificing flavor and quality by adding preservatives to their breakfast menu, Legacy has invested more into their packaging and storage options. Each pouch is flushed with nitrogen and made from mylar before being filled with wholesome ingredients that you can pronounce. An oxygen absorber inside each pouch works to remove oxygen from the contents, giving your Premium breakfast food a longer shelf life. These protective methods mean that there is more emphasis on the taste and quality of each meal, while also ensuring their availability in any emergency.
Legacy breakfast foods will keep your body going long into the afternoon, where you can meet that energy with a refuel from Legacy dinners. If you’re looking into emergency preparedness, you have pictured a scenario where an emergency takes place. You’ve most likely imagined tasteless rations that are specifically meant to get you through the day. You may have pictured dimly lit food stations where blocks of something are being prepared for that night’s dinner. You might not have asked yourself “What if someone in the group has Celiac’s?” or if you have, you may not have envisioned a solution. Legacy Premium has all the bases covered.
Ranging from Enchiladas to Cheesy Potato Soup, Legacy considers every diet in their food packaging. With high-calorie and protein counts per pouch, these foods are not only designed for survival, but to give you a meal that you’ll want to eat. Let’s take a look at just two of the options from Legacy’s breakfast and gluten-free dinner kits:
Typically, breakfast on the go means cut oats with no flavor — purely meant to be the nutritional start to your day. This recipe is different. Mixed together with brown sugar, these oats will satisfy your sweet tooth and keep you moving. Each pouch makes 6 prepared cups of oatmeal, meaning this is a simple, delicious breakfast for a large group. Not only is this pouch filled with plenty to go around, but it can be prepared in lighting speed. Only one minute of cooking these oats, and your breakfast is ready. How’s that for food on the go?
This isn’t a soup, nor is it a cheese and broccoli substitute, this is the real deal with real cheddar cheese, potatoes, broccoli, onion, and more. Consider the last mile of a backpacking trip — the one thing keeping you climbing up that trail is the thought of a hearty, real meal. Legacy Premium’s Cheese & Broccoli Bake has you covered. In just 20 minutes, you’ll have your boots off, tent up, and you’ll be digging into a delicious dinner. Any time you’re on the go and still want that savory flavor of cheesy broccoli goodness, it’s only a few easy steps away from being possible. There is no magical chef recipe that you have to follow — all you need is water and a pot to boil it in. Before cooking, you’ll see the broccoli florets, onion slices, and potatoes for yourself mixed together in the pouch. As you boil your meal, you can see the cheese start to hug the meal like a baked masterpiece. This dinner will immediately hit home as you think back on your mom’s famous casserole being pulled out of the oven. There’s no better reward than a quality meal, and you’ve earned it.
Legacy breakfasts and dinners are designed for dietary concerns and for real people in real emergency situations. Give you and your group a meal you’ll all love. Give them the meals that were voted best tasting. Give them Legacy Premium meals.
