I learned this one at scout camp while going through training last weekend. A great cold weather energy food is liquid jello. it's loaded with protein and sugar, just boil water and have a nice warm energy drink. It's a great substitute for water, coffee or energy drinks, has many flavors to choose from. I think I will add a couple packs to my BOB.:cool:

I've heard that also .... along with a lot of doctors have started asking moms to give their babies liquid jello ... don't remember right off hand way but they did.

My aunt was having a fit and offerening jello to anyone that came to visit, mom and baby. lol

The baby would drimk some and the rest went to the frig for 'jello'.

Not to mention calcium which is used by the immune system. Gelatin is a really easy food to digest and assimilate -- which is good for little'uns and adults alike. I'll sometimes add a little flavorless gelatin to chicken soup when family members get sick. I have no data showing that it helps other than the 'secret' of so-called "Jewish Penicillin" (aka chicken soup as a cure for the cold) is reputed to be the high gelatin content of the chicken bones and feet.

Agree wholeheartedly that it's a good food to stock.
