Grow your own
Recipes often only call for small portions of herbs – so why not grow your own? Herb gardens can take minimal space and maintenance, and make a great project for you and the family. Top tip, start keeping your coffee grounds – these make a great fertiliser for a fledgling garden.
Cutting down on waste
Managing what’s in your cupboard to minimise what you throw away, helps the environment and your budget.
Avoid serving too much
When plating up, our eyes are often bigger than our stomachs. Keeping portions to what you and your family will finish means less in the bin after and more leftovers in the fridge for tomorrow.
Make the most of leftovers and ingredients
It’s easy to forget the leftovers from two nights ago, or those spare carrots at the back of the fridge. Keep an eye on what’s in your fridge or pantry and, rather than toss them out, think how to use what you already have before heading to the supermarket.
