Cooking to save energy

Looking for comfort foods during cold times? Use a slow cooker to prepare hearty soups and stews. They use about as much energy as a light bulb. Slow cookers generally take less energy to run then heating up your oven, and they have the added bonus of being able to cook food unattended while you’re at work. When cooking small or individual portions of food, reheating in the microwave uses about 66 percent less energy than a conventional oven would use. When using a conventional oven for larger portions, remember there is no need to preheat it for more than 10 minutes for any temperature.
