reason to RISK the additional time spent, being exposed to enemies, and no reason to waste the resources, nor to risk the illness that comes from inadequately cooked food. Recipes my ass. You'll eat what you can, any way that you can.
A hot meal or beverage can mean the difference of life of death in the bush depending on your circumstances or weather conditions. By reducing the variety of food options in the bush, you do nothing but reduce your morale and allow your body to degrade by lack of nutrients. By the way gunkid, please post a kit list of the kit you have ready to go AT THIS MOMENT! You post yours, I'll post mine (with pictures also).

Yea, sure, you bet JD, when was the last time you spent a few days in the backcountry doing the cooking? When was the last time you harvested an animal and ran it feather or fur to pot?
You get your "boil everything" BS from some 30 year old survival manual, had you any experience at all, you would know how to prepare decent meals. Preparing good meals and keeping a clean and organized "kitchen", whether "one potting" it or camp boxing it is the halmark of the experienced outoorsman.
