Reconsidering GOPM vs. Grub

leave a comment »

I actually did end up enjoying last night’s GOPM more than my initial impression would suggest: the chipotle was a saving grace. But as I ate it, I thought of all the vegetables and greens that I had omitted for space reasons that would have made it into the dish prepared as grub (in a bigger pot). I think today I’ll cook those, then add the remainder of the GOPM to the pot to make a more vegetable-heavy meal. One certainly does get good vegetables with GOPMs, but the ratio of vegetables to the protein and starch in a grub is higher.

So, although the grub is more work to cook, I think I like the proportions better for me—plus by cooking a larger quantity, I can get more meals from a single cooking session. But I don’t mind repeating a meal; some don’t even want to have something for dinner that they had for lunch. So this is YMMV.
