No14: Firepot dehydrated meals, from £6.95 each, firepotfoo­


An army marches on its stomach, and so does a cyclist. Well, this cyclist does, anyway. I need a lot of fuel to keep me going on the bike, and when I’m averaging nearly 200km a day for two weeks, the occasional gel just isn’t going to cut it. There comes a time when I need a proper meal.

Thanks to Firepot I had a constant supply of decent meals that were both filling and tasty, which isn’t something you can usually say about dehydrated food. They are easy to make – just add boiling water and allow to sit for 15 minutes – and full of flavour. They can be eaten straight from the pack, plus there is a wide variety of meal options, including plenty of veggie and vegan ones. Expect things like curry, chilli and risotto, as well as porridge.
