you hey aren't you beef stew it's probably one of my favorites they're real easy to make and hey it's warfighter recommended that's right it's warfighter tested and warfighter approved so it's got to be good down a big so we're going to heat it up and eat and when we can see it has a peelable seal good luck you gotta be a warfighter to get the darn thing apart no man with arthritic hands this we do have it open so let's see what's up we have our entree which is beef stew ok we have strawberry banana dairy shake ok just mix up with water and spoon put our hot beverage bag vanilla pound cake that sounds pretty good cheese spread this is to spread this is the heater bag and we'll show you how that works and what good is peeps do and your soup without crappers so we got crackers and of course we've got our condiments that coffee and creamer and gum and matches and toilet paper and a moist wife and children all kinds of stuff okay so the first thing we're going to do people are going to take our beef stew package of beef stew I'm going to heat it so we open the package comes in a little aluminum plastic tape pack we take our heater barrack open it up then always make sure you read the directions better than you heat it says a paperless parking heater contains hydrogen a very flammable gas they're not please do not place on open flame in the vapor vapor is released by operator heater can dispense displace oxygen okay so you take your bag got a small place where the open take your meal Lil Bow in the bag now the only thing I actually have to supply is water now it says remove the pouch from the carton tear off the top of the bag ba ba ba while holding that marine collagen heater above mine on the bag pour water into the bag though reaches a level between these two lines and these are the two lines so you don't use a whole lot of water water you put it into the back water is a very valuable commodity we're in the wilderness okay it's his hold it over and put it back into the box and set it and an angle show you and just let it sit until it's warm make sure like I said put up there's hydrogen coming out of this and if it was a warm day I would not want to set it there because of the heat of the engine coming off might just caused the fire so we'll let it sit until it's one it's already starting to heat up I can feel the heat coming to the top of the box yeah that's hot okay that's what we want we want our meal to get more you know for soldiers and things that the outfield they don't always have the the most comfortable conditions and a nice warm meal a nutritious meal keeps them in the fight and it's very important that they get a nutritious meal and each one of these meals has a balance of carbohydrates and protein and and things that keep them healthy and keep them in a fight now there are things that I really don't care for and the cheese bread just happens to be one of them so we're going to donate this to our hog trap project because pigs like I said I eat anything but might they can call my key give me the mic he eats everything well I'll tell you would if that doesn't bring the harms nothing will that is a very strong smelling substance is what it's probably 50 60 feet from here and I can smell it from here that is a very strong substance we should get them a pig by the end of to even give you a small bottle of Tabasco sauce I mean that's that's a taste of it and will also donate this to the pigs what my meal is usually warming I usually go through and and take out the things that I I need to keep with me on the trail now there are certain things like the basketball also they took out that will be something that may draw the pigs in so we get rid of that but now the other stuff that's in here isn't disposable as far as I'm concerned now the one given is that I always bring water and I mean always that's a given if you go anywhere in a four-wheeler that's away from your house or whatever that's not bad even when you go in your car to bring water with you really if you think about it so water is a given so I don't drink coffee but somebody in my party might you know they give you a cup of coffee you know and who knows if you're out the woods and you get stuck out and you're cold or whatever maybe how cup of coffee would be good pull it paper now you don't want to throw this away because this is a natural phenomena that you've got you've got to use that moist towelette you need that salt your body needs salt now prima creamer is not a necessity but some people do like it with their coffee of course you get sugar now now sugar isn't the only thing it's not necessarily either for coffee I don't drink coffee fine I'm diabetic and with the medicine then I take IM subject to low sugar levels you out here in the middle of nowhere and your sugar drops you better have something that you can rely on you get it back up to normal before you pass out go into a diabetic coma now four grams of sugar will definitely do it so I have containers in the back that I keep these sugars Paula paper matches you machine breaks down for miles from your car and you're there or you're you twisted an ankle of something you might need a fire in order to spend the night stay warm these things you may never use them and pretty glad that if they're for emergency purposes that you don't but it's good to happen yeah and when we open our Maori path this bag does not become useless after we take everything else it's anything that we used goes back here except maybe the toilet paper okay if you use the toilet paper you can bury that that's fine you don't need to put it back in your back you're going to take the bag out with it the beverage bag that they give you yeah it's good for making hot beverages if you want a hot beverage you take a heater like we use for our meal once this is that your beverage in it in the mixture and so forth you stick it in the box just like you would your meal but remember when you're out here in the wilderness you may need to collect water or you may need to collect something that that needs to be collected this is a sealable bag so then get throw it away let's just put back in our emergency supplies now the score berry banana milkshake or dairy shake is what they call it this is what it looks like do I want to just throw this away no why it's got 160 calories okay look a lot of military food is high in calories because they need the energy gets to replenish what they burn in combat so where's high in calories and fat high in sodium these are the things that you need to get for your body to maintain water and it's high in carbohydrates like I said this is user for energy like an energy shake so even if you don't use it save it don't throw it away you know if if your needs some kind of nutrition and you have water I mean there's really no nutrition of water it's you need it but there's no nutrition in it but this has sixty percent of this is calcium and two percent is vitamin C and forty percent is vitamin D things that you need to survive and there's two percent iron so you know you got it don't throw it away it's not heavy store in your pack well at that time our meal has more time to eat oh yeah that's warm the bag is actually useful after the for the heater element in here and has a chemical reaction with the water then once the chemical reaction takes takes place and the heat is dissipated from the chemical reaction like it said the hydrogen is released from the water or whatever bag is no good but make sure you get throw it away in a proper container the stuff that's in here the granules and so forth they're probably poison to the animals in the wild life so put that in your MRE bag and take it out with you Thanks well we had our main course or our beats do it some crackers with it is nice and year for dessert we had vanilla pound cake get the little dry so make sure you have some water it's it's kept that way because it's got a this oxygen
