"I love garlic, red chili flakes and oregano, or fresh rosemary sprig with garlic cloves in olive oil. Either's great on fresh popped corn with a little Parmesan." --Linda

"We use any good multi-grain bread, no butter, toasted on a Foreman grill. I like manchego, feta, or blue cheese with sliced pears & fig spread. My husband likes low-fat pepperjack with jalapenos & reduced-salt, low-fat turkey. But we like lots of other combos, too, since we experiment with low-fat cooking of all types." --Anna

"Love the reusing cooking water idea, and the veggie broth will flavor rice or pasta, so it helps there too! The rest of the ideas are things I already do. Every day should be Earth Day!" --Cheryl

Odd as it may sound, I add fresh tea leaves, chocolate mint, that grow just outside the back door. It is aromatic and delish -- the dash of cinnamon works, so does carob powder and chili powder. It makes a choco/spicy brew that is tops." --Katie Marie
