Solar Cooking; The Wave Of The Future

Utilizing solar energy is surely a step forward for the world of mankind.  After all, don't we all desire a healthier planet?  Solar energy is more than just better for the environment, its free.  Unfortunately those solar panels that are required to generate energy for our homes are not free.  They are quite expensive and many will probably not see a return on their investment.   There are, however,  smaller methods of putting this natural resource to use.  One of my faves is solar cooking.

I personally feel that every household should have a solar cooker of some type.   They're nice to have on hand for power outages, but they can also be a useful tool.  I've recently did a little research and discovered how many folks are enjoying using solar cooking in just every day life.

Cantinwest specializes in solar cookers.  They offer a vast supply of solar cookers as well as a wealth of valuable information into the world of solar cooking and its many benefits.   

What I really like about solar cooking

Healthier and better tasting food.  Cooking food slowly at lower temperatures retains foods nutrients and flavor.   Another favorite aspect: It's simple. That's right, there's very little prep time and because food holds on to its natural flavor it taste better. That means that even a novice cook like myself can prepare delicious meals.   

Hot Pot Solar Panel Cooker.  The panels fold for easy transporability

The Hot Pot Solar Panel Cooker pictured above is just the right size for easy transportability.    So its ideal for family outings.  This cooker will hold four quarts, so it can easily prepare substantial meals for family and friends.  It appears that the sky is the limit in regard to the varied dishes that can be made in this Hot Pot Cooker. 

Bye Bye Crock Pot

I love the idea of using Hot Pot Solar Cooker instead of a crock pot. Easy prep and delicious meals prepared and ready after a long day at work.  

The downside to the Hot Pot Solar cooker:  If you are like me and live in the north, you will find its best used in mid, to late February to November.  The low sun in the winter make use difficult.    

Over all I think this is a great cooker to have on hand.

Celebrities Love Havaianas Flip Flops

Pretty in pink Maria Menounos and Giada De Laurentiis show off their pretty pink Havaianas

I recently eavesdropped on a public forum. The topic being discussed: the popularity of Havaianas footwear amongst the rich and famous. The shopper in me thought this was rather interesting, so I did a littler sleuthing.

So what makes Havaianas so special that they garnered the affection of the ridiculously rich and well-to-do?

Not your average flip flop

For starters Havaianas are well made and offer a greater degree of comfort than your typical flip flop.  They last longer and flatter feet.  They look good.  You can say they are a very stylish flip flop and there's something for everyone.

A luxury flip flop that is accessible to all

 The average Havaianas cost around eighteen through twenty six dollars.  So even us regular folks on a budget can afford these high quality flip flops.  They are even available throughout the world.

My next vacation, as well as the warm weather, will be accompanied by these supreme sandals.

Visit us.havaianas.com to find the perfect style flip flop.  There's even an option to create your own.
