Are you looking to buy the best keto freeze-dried meals? We hear you. It’s hard to find a place in the world of food storage when you have special metabolic needs or lifestyles. Luckily for us, three emerging companies cater to the keto lifestyle.
Many people on keto keep asking where Next Mile Meals was when they went hiking years ago. Their goal is to give you outstanding keto-friendly food to fuel your next adventure.
The meals are grouped by breakfast, lunch, and dinner to make your choice easy for you. If you want to try out all of their flavors, they have a sampler pack for $95.70. At the time of this posting, it’s on sale for $86.13
These are made to make your hiking and camping easy. You get your Next Mile Meals in easy-to-open, resealable Mylar bags that are durable enough to eat in. All you have to do is open the keto meal, then remove the oxygen absorber. Finally, add 6-7 oz (3/4 cup or slightly over) of boiling water. Just enough to submerge (not flood) the contents. Stir, seal, and wait for 7-10 minutes before eating. The bag can be very hot, so be careful when you open it.
It’s great comfort food when you’re tired from your trip or things aren’t going well for the day. Many say the flavors are great and don’t disappoint. It’s a nice, yummy keto meal to have besides the campfire. Portions are generous to give you a lot of energy to work without loading you with carbs. Really eliminates the work of making your own meals just to fit your keto lifestyle and metabolic needs.
Many dislike freeze-dried meals because they feel like they’re filling themselves with cheap carbohydrates. Flat Out Feasts provides better backcountry meals by eliminating the “fluff” of cheap carbs and giving you just the good stuff.
The company is just new compared to Honeyville, Patriot, and Legacy. The founder, Lisa, created Flat Out Feast to help her finish her PCT thru-hike. The meals kept her going through her personal test, and she never got tired of eating them.
All the tried and tested flavors are:
The packets are sold for $17.50 and have a sampler pack for $87.50. Each packet contains 1 serving and has between 7-9 net carbs. Low enough to help you keep stay within your keto diet within the day.
Since the company’s relatively new, there are only a few reviews to rely on. But the reviews show the amount of protein is unbelievable and can satisfy a hungry keto appetite. It’s true when the company says they don’t mess around with portions. The flavor is on point, too. One even said the shepherd’s pie made her think of the one her mom used to make. The preparation of the cauliflower was also impressive. If you find it easy to overcook your florets, this will make your life easy. The texture is like a freshly cooked meal, something that’s rare for freeze-dried camping meals.
The company’s started by an amazing woman named Christi, a free spirit who loves the outdoors and has a passion for high and wild places.
Wanting to help you unleash your wild side, the flavors she made were:
Each pack has 1 serving and costs $18.70. But if you order by March 31st, you might make it to their spring sale and spend only $14.92 per pack.
Do note that you get around 12g-18g of net carbohydrates per pack. It’s higher than Flat Out Feast but can still meet your daily limit of less than 50 grams per day. If you’re on a strict keto diet, use this cautiously.
In a world dominated by carb-ridden meals, finding a brand that will suit your nutritional needs is a struggle. Thankfully, these three companies are making waves and are passionate about making a difference in no-cook meals. As a result, emergency food storage and camping meals will never be the same again. You’re no longer left behind; you can freely enjoy your passion for the outdoors without worrying about your diet.
However, don’t hesitate to make your keto-friendly meals. If you already have an excellent keto recipe, try freeze-drying it yourself. If you don’t want to spoil a whole batch, that’s fine. Put portions of your keto recipe on the tray, then try freeze-drying it.
What’s the best about going keto? Isn’t it having control over your food? So make use of that control and own it. Make your own freeze-dried meal and see if it works. If it doesn’t, no big deal. Document it, write down what’s wrong with it, and do another meal. Keep going; eventually, you’ll find a list of keto meals you can and can’t freeze dry. For those that can’t, maybe you’ll even discover ways to improve it and make it work. Who knows, you might even contribute to the improvement of this lifestyle. We believe that this is how these three companies started.
