Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Leaky Kitchen Tap

kitchen quick tips
A leaky kitchen tap at 1 drop per second wastes more than 25 L of water per day or 9,000 L a year. At our prices (9,000 L = 9 m3, 9 m3 x 0.76 = $6.84) that works out to $6.84 per year. Fixing the tap usually costs nothing more than a washer at about 5¢ so fix the tap and use your water savings to buy extra food for your pantry (eg. savings would put 5 packages of dry pasta in your pantry assuming $1.29 per package).
