There really are plenty of options to consume food when the grid goes down, but virtually without fail the most effective way is not cold!
MRE’s were created to be eaten cold. But warming nearly anything up makes it tastes better.

We have discussed how when the grid goes down where there is absolutely no kitchen to prepare meals… so what happens when you might find yourself in dire straights?

There are numerous examples of stoves out there. I have a ‘jet-boil’, which is not really a cooker, but I can boil water for soup or cook meals quickly with just a small amount of petrol. There’s definitely the rocket cooker for those who possess timber and plenty of time available, but I just found a fantastic tutorial for the best way to create a little alcohol stove from a soda can, which let’s face it, can pretty much be found layering around any urban area.
It’s possible to pay a pretty large sum for these stoves, but this isn’t necessary if you’ve some time as well as a little patience to try your hand at making something. These can be made using just a couple of simple tools you might already have to hand, and offer both warmth and an excellent resource for cooking.
