Wow! My favorite of the no-cook meals 2/19/19
Full StarFull StarFull StarFull StarFull Star
OK, so I cook almost every night and am a little bit of a food snob, so it's almost embarrassing for me to say how much I enjoyed this instant meal. Not only am I going to take this out into the field with me, but I would totally eat this even when I'm home with access to a full kitchen. Great combination of mildly sweet apples pieces, tangy cranberries, and deep savory flavors of the lentil. Packs a punch with 540 calories and 22g of fat (only 2g sat fat), so it's no wonder I finished it feeling very satisfied. I really like the two quinoa instant dishes sold by Outdoor Herbivore, but I love this one!

Took some of Outdoor Herbivore meals on a multi-day backpacking trip a few months back - doing research testing for a 2019 thru hike. I'm concerned about being veggie, mostly vegan and not getting enough of a diversity of foods so I'm loving these options. Open Sky Yasai was by far my favorite thus far for a cold soak option that retained texture. I love the ginger and flavor combo. It is a tad on the sweet side, but I think that will be much needed and appreciated on a long haul hike. The other thing I love is the minimal and recyclable packaging - the industry needs to take note so we may avoid adding more MRE unrecyclable bags into the landfills.

Great Products, Excellent Service!  08/29/16

We chose your dinner entrees ( I think all of them) and for the after Muir trail ranch part the Waldorf salad - which we added to oatmeal for breakfast. Your products were flavorful and kept us fueled for the demands of the hike. We didn't miss meat proteins. We rarely eat meat at home, mostly chicken or fish when we do. Great products, excellent service! Now we have to wait for the next trip - unless we decide we need an Outdoor Herbivore fix sooner.

Four nights, five days camping  04/11/16

Bought the 7-day "hungry single" meal package, split it between two people over five days. Two of the meals were more of mixes (pesto, black bean mix) to be used on bread or tortilla. However, everything was delicious. We used a jetboil flash, the food rehydrated just fine, and we had food leftover.

Customer service was very helpful and rushed our order to us on a short deadline. The food was delicious and hearty and kept us going throughout the day. By far the best food I've had while backpacking.

For the 3rd year running the 5 day 2-3 person package figuratively knocked it out of the park. Delivered on time on short notice tasty, filling, easy to make and well packaged.

I love the vegan meals by Outdoor Herbivore. Everything we tasted, including the Apple Quinoa Oatmeal, was satisfying in taste, texture, quantity and packaging (not too heavy for those of us minimalist types). We will definitely use this again on our next adventure.

I recommend all the Outdoor Herbivore selections I’ve tried — never boring, always digestible, and available in single-serving sizes. Quick shipping, too! Every vegetarian/vegan backpacker should put a visit to the OH website on his or her pre-trip checklist. Go OH!

Patagonia Food!  08/14/15
Full StarFull StarFull StarFull StarFull Star
Bought the 7-Day Meal Combo to bring on a trip through Patagonia. Given the fact that southern Chilean food was mostly meat, it was great to have a break from meager meals. 
Meals were great! Literally loved them. Only one I wasn’t fond of was the “Cole Slaw.” 
The lunches included in this combo were mostly hot, which isn’t practical for backpacking so I brought my own snacks for lunch and then added the hot lunches on as extra dinners/made bigger dinners. 
This is listed as good for 1-2 people. Mine was shared with two adults. One female and one male. All of the dinners and breakfasts we mixed with additional oatmeal or rice. If we didn’t have that additional food, it would NOT have been enough for the two of us.

Vegan Backpackers Rejoice!  07/15/15

Delicious, easy, and made figuring out how to eat while backpacking as a vegan super simple! I ordered a couple combos and have done a few long weekend trips so far and plan to do a two week trip in a couple weeks. With all the planning involved in any longer hiking adventure, it is nice to have one part of the equation simplified. Couldn't be happier.

Everything was easy to make  05/18/15

Everything was easy to make and tasted good. It is important to actually wait the whole time the instructions before eating—taste and texture come out right that way. I tested a few items at home and took the rest backpacking. I was not a fan of the tofu scramble and the blackened quinoa was my favorite.

The backpacking meal sampler was on my menu during a recent running adventure in Sri Lanka. Only hot water was provided by the organizers. I loved my Herbivore meals and got some envious comments from other runners. The meals are tasty and nutritious so support heavy physical activity during the 6 day race.

this food was great - well seasoned and great flavors! i did take some of the food on a high altitude trip, though, and you would need to adjust the amount of water for preparing the food for that. overall, great food, and i will be buying more soon!
