Growing and Cooking your Own Food
Fossil fuels. We are so dependent on them; the fact that we use them to ship our food long distances is cause for concern.
If you have a home with a backyard, why not grow your own fruits and vegetables? There would be no fossil fuels used to transport them to your dinner table.
A garden of fruits and vegetables, however, does require a lot of work. So, if your career is such that it truly prevents you from growing your own produce, then of course it would be more difficult to maintain a vegetable and fruit garden.

I don’t have to convince anyone that cooking your own meals at home (as well as growing them) can really help to save money each month. And whether you are trying to save money to survive from paycheck to paycheck, or you want to save money to go on a big travel adventure abroad, it really helps to cut costs by growing and cooking your own food.
And, with all the information available to us online, it makes it quite easy to gather the basic information to start financially healthful habits.
