Hi Neighbors! As we already know, eating home-cooked food is better for our health and the environment. But we can also maximize this eco-friendly value with a few tips and tricks. Therefore, let's discuss tips to be more environmentally in the kitchen.
Use durable cooking utensils
Choose durable cookware and utensils. That means you should stop buying Teflon. Besides being harmful to health, Teflon coating is easily scratched and not durable. Use stainless steel or iron instead. Although it requires maintenance, a good cast-iron skillet will last for generations.
Avoid frozen food
Avoid buying pre-prepared frozen meals, and make your own at home. In addition to less fresh taste, frozen food storage requires more energy for storage. Cook food using fresh and purchase ingredients in moderation.
Shop for local ingredients
Why should we shop locally? In addition to a better freshness factor, ingredients from abroad require a means of transportation that emits quite a lot of pollution. So buy more ingredients that are around you.
Reduce food waste
Use fresh ingredients wisely and as much as possible to avoid food waste. cooked food that is not finished is also considered food waste. Food waste that accumulates in landfills will produce a greenhouse gas that is harmful to the Earth.
Use a pressure cooker to speed up the cooking process
Pressure cookers are another great way to save energy, reducing cooking time by up to 70%. With shorter cooking times and smoother results you also reduce gas usage.
