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.
