Avoid Toxins During Food Prep And Cooking

Are you trying to reduce or completely eliminate the amount of toxins you take in when you eat? Have you been having trouble finding ways to do this? Well, I’m going to let you know a few different ways to do this. I’ll let you know which frying pans to avoid, which cookware is a good choice and how to properly prepare your meal without accidentally adding extra toxins.

Let’s start with cookware. Some of the worst frying pans you can use are any that are covered in a nonstick coating. Some research has shown that once that coating reaches 700 degrees, which can take as little as 3-5 minutes, it can release 15 or more toxic chemicals and gases. Also, when these chemicals are overheated they can produce fumes that have been known to make people sick and also kill birds. Needless to say, nonstick pans are not good for you or your animals if you prepare their food with them also.

Some of the best cookware options you can be using are ceramic cookware like ceramic cookware, cast-iron cookware, copper cookware, glass cookware and many others. Out of these, I personally feel that cast-iron cookware is one of the best to use. Yes, the iron from the skillets can get into your prepared foods, but iron is actually a healthy additive. If you know you have low iron in your blood, these could actually help you with that. Also, cleanup is extremely easy with cast-iron cookware. It is actually recommended that you don’t use soap.

Ceramic and glass cookware are also good options to use because they don’t really have any additives in them and they can be used until they break or you decide you don’t want it any more. One downside to having glass, ceramic, and enameled cookware, is that when you decide you are done with them you can not recycle it. You would just have to sell them or throw them away.

When it comes to the utensils you should use to cut down or eliminate your toxin intake, try using stainless steel or ceramic utensils. These have little to no toxins in them and also last a very long time. Bamboo utensils are also great to use because they are made of all natural materials and they could be recycled after you are done with them.

You should also try avoiding using plastic cooking and eating utensils. These can melt into your food and you could end up eating the chemicals from them. They can be handy when you have guests over for a party but if you are really serious about cutting out your toxins, I suggest investing in more ceramic or glass cookware and dinnerware.

One last thing you can do to avoid adding toxins to your foods while you prepare them is to use a bamboo, glass, wooden or ceramic cutting board. These are much sturdier than plastic cutting boards and are much less likely to break off and get pieces of them into your food. They are also much easier to maintain due to the fact that they are a smoother surface.

I hope this was helpful to you and I also hope your practices of a toxin free life work out for the best.
