Surprising ways to contribute to the Green Eating movement

Besides the main ideas of Green Eating, which include buying local, growing your own food, and eating organic, there are many other surprising ways to eat green.  What do using a knife, keeping the door closed, and filling up the freezer have in common?  All are great ways of lessening your environmental food impact.  Instead of using a food processor to chop your food, utilize your knife skills and chop your own food, not only does it reduce your electricity use but also it can help you become a better cook!  While it is very tempting to peek at your food by opening the oven door, this has a negative effect on the environment. Every time you open your oven door to check on food, your oven loses between 25 and 50 degrees Fahrenheit.  Having a well-stocked freezer uses less energy than running an empty freezer.
