When you boil or steam vegetables, don't pour the water down the drain. Save the cooled water and use it to water potted plants. Many plants will respond well to the added nutrients from the water. Fruit and vegetable peels can also be soaked in water for about eight hours before the water is used to water houseplants. Strain out the peelings and toss them onto the compost pile.

|Boil unpeeled potatoes (preferably organic) until tender. Transfer to a dish or bowl and smash to desired consistency with a potato masher. Add a little fresh cracked pepper and butter (if desired). Soooo good.
