Being green can sometimes really can be a hassle, but this might help just a little .Who needs a big solar cooker when cooking without electricity or gas? All you need is a paper bag and a zip-lock bag! So lets get started.



****THIS WILL NOT COOK FOOD, IT WILL ONLY MAKE IT HOT, YOU HAVE BEEN WARNED I AM NOT RESPOSIBLE FOR YOU GETTING SICK FROM THIS****

Step 1: Gather Ingredients

This step is not hard at all, just a paper bag (use a dark color), a zip-lock bag, and obviously... FOOD!

Step 2: SEAL IT UP!!!

Put your food in the zip-lock bag, squeeze all the air out, and seal it up.

Step 3: Into the Oven...

Put the zip-lock bag now containg food into the paper bag (the oven, you know from the title? Yeah I know, bad joke, ugh well). Then fold it up all nice and pretty, make sure you cannot still see food, if you can fold more.

Step 4: Finding Heat

Look around the house and find the window with the most sunlight coming in, found it? OK, good, now just slide the baggie up against the window.

Step 5: The Hardest Part Has Just Begun.

Now, wait, for ugh, about 1-3 hours depending on how much food you have... So just stare at this cute picture I found on Facebook. Check on your food every so often and when its warm just take it out and eat it! Remember to be green and recycle! Have a wonderful day and remember to stay awesome!

Nice tip, I often leave my lunch in my van and it gets all sweaty. However if I have something that actually needs warming this is helpful, you could use a black bag and it would probably get warmer.
