EnerHealth Botanicals’ Survive2Thrive line stands in a class of its own. What you’re paying for is certified organic ingredients in a storable, stackable container.

 

Our research team decided to calculate the costs of packaging and obtaining these food ingredients to determine an average cost for a price comparison. What they found was that one would need to procure a vacuum sealer device, bags, food, spices and pail. The initial cost for a beginner would be approximately 40% higher than purchasing a single 40 day/night Survive2Thrive pail. However, once the materials were all purchased, the savings would be approximately 18% lower. That being said, a full discussion was started regarding the time and effort put into packaging, as well as how much time a regular person would have to perform these tasks. Based on this discussion, it was decided that for the extra 18% difference in price, 88% of our research group would rather have someone else do the work, as well as take on the liability of food safety regulations. We found this as a valid justification for the price difference.

We awarded EnerHealth Botanicals’ Survive2Thrive products 5 out of 5 stars.

TASTE

2013 EnerHealth Botanicals Review | 5-stars-460x86 |

[collapse id=”collapse_99″]
[citem title=”Taste Notes (Click To Expand)” id=”citem_99″ parent=”collapse_99″]
Taste Tested: Black Beans and Brown Rice, seasoned with Cajun spice; EnerFood drink mix

Overall Taste: Excellent
Palatability: Spicy with Cajun Seasoning; Enerfood Drink – “unique flavor; indescribable”
Texture: Hearty (quoted from one reviewer “beany and ricey”); EnerFood Drink – Creamy

 

In a blind taste test, we placed one ounce sample cups from each participant in front of our research group. These samples included vegetarian, gluten-free and regular entrees, as well as dried fruits, drinks and breakfast meals. We then had them each taste the samples we provided them and asked that they write down their experiences to let us know just what they thought of each sample.

Based on the fact that EnerHealth Botanicals’ Survive2Thrive product is raw ingredients, the taste test was based on instructions and recipes located within the packaging. Instructions followed, testers reviewed Black Beans and Brown Rice seasoned with Cajun seasoning. Reviewers were pleased with the seasoning and were excited that they would be able to add other seasoning to their liking.

 

We awarded EnerHealth Botanicals’ Survive2Thrive 5 out of 5 stars.

PREPARATION

[collapse id=”collapse_48″]
[citem title=”Preparation Notes (Click Here To Expand)” id=”citem_18″ parent=”collapse_48″]
Average Preparation Time: 45 minutes to 1.5 hours
Instructions Included: Yes
Instructions Location: Within Pail; Printed Pages
Ease Of Preparation: Medium Difficulty

 

When it comes to eating nutritious and healthy foods, you should know all ingredients included, as well as the cooking process. With a little help from the included instructions, even those who cannot cook can figure out how to make a meal suitable for camping, survival or even for dinner.

Our research group enjoyed having instructions because they were easy to follow and helped clarify how certain staples should be cooked, even teaching younger people how to begin cooking. Though some were excited about this, others preferred the “just add water” method for ease of use, which lowered the score a bit.

In either case, if you’re looking for healthy, certified organic ingredients packaged for easy storage, then we recommend EnerHealth Botanicals’ Survive2Thrive.

We awarded EnerHealth Botanicals’ Survive2Thrive 4 out of 5 stars.
