Your Introduction to Meals in a Bag

Learn the secrets behind preparing quick and easy meals on a budget that your friends and family will love!

Quick and Easy Dehydrated Meals in a Bag (Stackpole Books, 2018) by Tammy Gangloff, Steven Gangloff, and September Ferguson gives families handy recipes to whip up quick meals, offers hikers meals to take on their adventures, and survivalists who are looking to dehydrate their meals to store for emergencies. The following is their introduction into preparing your meals in a bag.

We’ve all done it: paid for the easy accessibility of store-bought meals in a box. You know what we’re talking about! Walk down any grocery aisle and you will find boxes of easy meals or side dishes. The main work has been done, all the seasonings and spices are there; just add a few ingredients and you’re ready in minutes.

Whether you’re a stay-at-home mom or dad, a working parent, or a caregiver of any kind, life is crazy busy. We get it! We spend much of our lives running around between jobs, hobbies, and errands, shuttling the kids from place to place, all the while harboring that nagging question in the backs of our minds: “What am I making for dinner tonight?”

Often, we make what is fast and easy. But for this, we have to compromise. We pay extra money to purchase the pre-boxed meal, and we pay the health cost on these often over-processed and sodium-­saturated items.

It’s about time we share with you our secret to making easy, healthy, and cost-effective meals in a snap, using your own ingredients, ready at your fingertips. Don’t fall out of your chair yet—we’re just getting to the good part!

Our first book, The Ultimate Dehydrator Cookbook, showed you the art of food dehydration, preparation, and rehydration. We got you started with instructions on dehydrating foods from A to Z, and introduced you to rehydrating and making meals, desserts, and treats. In this book we will take you into a new realm of ingenuity as we tackle making “meals in a bag” with your dehydrated fruits and veggies.

So is this an online M.E. publication or is there a place to order the book that I am not seeing.
