Great to grow your own vegetables - sort of acts as an incentive to eat more - home grown are always ,much nicer.....

It just makes sense.

Also, use a ring that is no bigger than your pot so you don't go to all the effort of heating the air around your stove!!

There are some very nice insulated pots on I've found that I can cook at much lower heat settings and leave the pots covered on simmer once they've gotten hot enough. Saves lots of energy.

First of all I appreciate the author for taking the effort to share a topic on a very good information. Since we know that the use of pesticides and insecticides on the usage of meat and meat products have increased, the need to consume plant-based foods is at a greater demand.
