Yeah, it doesn't sound that appealing. But really, if you ever want to figure out something quick, cheap, and healthy to cook, look to the peasants of the world. Whether it's a hearty french vegetable stew, or a lentil curry from the far east, or even just some rice with stir-fried vegetables...

Tame a wild barbecue - Toss a bit of salt on flames from food dripping in barbecue grills to reduce the flames & calm the smoke without cooling the coals (like water does). Kill poison ivy - Mix three pounds of salt with a gallon of soapy water (use a gentle dish soap) & apply to leaves and stems with a sprayer, avoiding any plant life that you want to keep.
