If you wish to maintain a healthy kitchen, you should know that it is not only the food that you procure that makes a difference, but what also matters is how you cook this food and how you store this food. If you want your food to be healthy, you have to ensure that cooking and storing mechanisms are also healthy.
Below are a few things that you should immediately get rid off from your kitchen if you wish to maintain good health.
BPA a type of xenoestrogen, mimics excess estrogen in the body, is found in plastic. When we eat food out of plastic containers, small amounts of this substance enter our bodies. Choose to use glass containers, the material is non reactive and will not leak any chemicals and enter the food that is stored in them when heated.
Plastic Cooking Utensils
The plastic ladels you use to cook your food melt easily under high heat. When you stir your food, when you flip your pancakes or use it under extreme heat conditions, they will give way and make their way in small amounts in to your food. You do not want that now, do you? So, stay clear of plastic and use cooking utensils that are safe and do not melt away in to your food.
Beeswax wrap or parchment paper are clearly a better alternative to using a ziplock for the food that you carry on the go. Choose to use these instead.
Nonstick Teflon Skillet
Non stick skillets are slowly but surely making their way out of the market, considering the cancer causing elements that they carry. Choose to use cast iron as an alternative, however, you may have to use a little more fat like ghee or butter or coconut oil to ensure your food does not stick, but at least it wont cause you harm.
Keep your kitchen of dangerous chemicals and you can ensure that half your battle against bad health is won. Speak with a Registered Holistic Nutritionist or get in touch with a Homeopath to learn how you can further stay healthy and enjoy good health with some healthy habits.
