That's good to know. It's interesting, because the company website strongly recommends the food be eaten within 1 - 2 weeks once the can is opened. Good to know that it can last a bit longer.
I too make my own pre-made meals. A combination of freeze dried meats, cheese and butters, my own dehydrated veggies and other pantry ingredients. I only use product that has a very long shelf life (like white flour, sugar etc) and customize to my taste and portions. I do full day meals (breakfast, lunch, supper a dessert and drinks) and vacuum seal all in mylar bags. Then they all go into a 5 gallon bucket. They are more work but i know whats in them and they are items I like to eat. They are great for backpacking, hunting or whatever...
As much as we all love meat, don't be afraid to consider 'vegetarian' options (Although the don't fulfill your meat cravings :/ ). To get your 'complete proteins', you can combine legumes or nuts with a grain. There's tonnes of different combinations, some more palatable than others. Rice and beans, peanut/nut butter on whole wheat toast are some options. I had to take a basic nutrition course for college and it was actually really helpful in trying to plan out healthy meals both for current eating and for storing!
