Provident Living

An increasing number of families are embracing the idea of provident living to gain greater peace of mind by being prepared to meet life’s challenges and unexpected events. Provident has several meanings, which include spending less than you earn, preparing for cloudy days ahead, and planning for the future.

Provident living can also mean focusing on basic necessities and practicalities while acquiring the skills necessary to be self-reliant in times of personal or widespread emergency. Thousands of families have found their SUN OVENS® to be an invaluable tool in their journey toward self-reliance.

Everything Under The Sun

Wendy has given her permission for us to share this booklet  “Everything Under The Sun
 

Fuel Storage

How much fuel can you safely store? Many families who practice provident living have set aside food but struggle with the issue of how to store enough fuel. Using a SUN OVEN® decreases the amount of fuel which must be stored. In areas blessed with an abundance of sunshine, the sun oven can cook up to 70% of a family’s meals. Even though it is called a solar powered oven, food can be baked, boiled, and steamed in a SUN OVEN®- so other than fried foods, anything normally cooked on a stovetop or in an oven can be cooked in a SUN OVEN®.

Slash Utility Costs

To some, provident living is strictly a doomsday mater. They store food and emergency supplies just for the peace of mind of knowing they’re on hand. Others see provident living as an ordinary approach to using resources and use the free resource of the sun to cut their utility bills by using their SUN OVENS® for daily cooking.

When harnessed for solar cooking, the sun can be a valuable resource which can save money and promote healthy eating.
Bread or roasts can be baked outdoors without heating up the kitchen.

Sun-baked bread has unparalleled taste and texture.
