I feel like such an idiot, can we share cooking myths and put an end to all this nonsense?
>don't pour oil down the drain
Dish soap and dishwasher detergent break the grease down and we flush gallons of that down the drain every day, a little oil isn't going to hurt.
>Le put le bay leaf in le soup
Actual bullshit herb that serves no purpose. I dare you to microwave some test comparison ramen packs and taste the difference. You won't be able to.
>Tupperware or most other food containers
I honestly don't know how they get away with this. Deli cups all use the same lid for any size, stack no matter what, and fits more sanely in any cabinet or lunchbox. You can even freeze, microwave and run through the washer.
>Eating healthy is too expensive! I'll just enjoy my Pepsi 🙂
Fat sugar addict cope. You can get a sandbag of rice and oats that would last you years for less than 20 dollars. Most vegetables are dirt cheap, and you can just plant most of the stuff you get from the store to get 10x as much. Bread costs next to nothing to make. Tomatoes and onions grow like weeds.
