The festive season often sees us cooking a big meal, or for friends and family. To save some money, here are a few tips about saving energy and reducing waste from the Love Food Hate Waste campaign.
- Use lids for your pans
Whether you’re cooking peas or pasta, rice or ravioli, if you put a lid on the pan, you can turn down the heat; it keeps the heat in. That means you can save some money on your energy bills. And as an added bonus, a lid helps reduce steam and condensation in your kitchen.
- Bulk buying

- Plan your meals each week
If you write out your meals for each day, and buy the ingredients, you should find you throw away less food.
