Next time you’re cooking at home, make double the amount you need. Keep the leftovers in the fridge and then eat them for lunch or reheat in the microwave another evening.
**How this helps**
Cooking can be energy intensive, especially if you’re boiling water or using the oven. It doesn’t take much additional energy when you increase the number you’re cooking for, so by cooking more, you’re reducing the amount of energy used per serving.
Plus, by eating leftovers instead of take-out, you’re saving money and reducing the amount of packaging needed.
