Conserve energy by bulk cooking.
By cooking in large batches, you will save time, money, and energy. Plan your meals at the start of the week, ensuring you have enough storage containers to store the food.
Slow cookers and pressure cookers are great for cooking large portions of meals as they allow you to cook in bulk with minimal effort. In addition, these appliances use less energy to operate than a traditional oven. Use pots on the correct size cooktop heating element to avoid wasting energy heating the surrounding area.
Divide your food into portions and freeze, labelling and dating each container. Store any leftovers in the fridge and make sure they are heated to an internal temperature of 75°C to ensure they are safe to eat.
