NASA is apparently in preparation of an experiment to create meals that are balanced enough and not boring for the Mars Mission. Balanced food that is not boring is a big issue for the 3 year long journey to Mars. Those that go to Mars will have to eat prepared food, as well as cook shelf life food. Here is an excerpt from the article…

Since no life on Mars has been proven so far to enable astronauts to catch and grill something fresh, the mission on Mars will have to take enough rations for three years. The problem is how to make those rations sufficient and not boring.
Researchers from Cornell University and the University of Hawaii-Manoa are going to test six volunteers in a facility simulating a base on Mars on a Hawaiian lava flow. The deadline for applications is February 29.”
