Chemicals from nonstick pans, coated pots, Teflon, plastic cooking utensils, and aluminum cookware, plastic Tupperware and food storage leech toxins into food which have a negative effect on our health. That’s no fun!
I don’t know about you but I had no idea about any of this years ago when I started trying my hand at eating healthy. You would think okay, I’m buying organic and trying my best to live a healthy lifestyle. But to find out that cookware is contributing to toxins in the body is quite shocking! Are you with me?
Its important to look at all areas of our lifestyle that could potentially contribute to the toxic load of our bodies.

Nonstick cookware contains a manmade chemical called perfluorooctanoic acid which stays in the human body for a long time accumulating in the air in your home. While aluminum cookware is highly reactive & leaches into food. It has been shown that these toxins are linked to cancer, liver damage, infertility, delays in growth development, neurotoxicity, high cholesterol, Alzheimer’s, thyroid issues, Inflammation, weakened immune system, allergies, etc. None of that sounds appealing.
Food is meant to nourish and support the body, not increase our toxic load. That’s why it’s important to be conscious of what we cook our food in.
I am so passionate about this topic and wanted to shed some light in hopes of bringing up a conversation that is often overlooked.

Cast iron cookware (properly seasoned)
High quality stainless steel. The reason it should be high quality is it can leach nickel into your food if it is not Wooden cooking utensils (I love bamboo that is not coated)
Glass Tupperware (for cooking & storing food in a healthy way)
Being conscious of these types of things is wonderful because it gives us choices and room to make improvements over time. In doing so we reduce our toxin intake and encourage our bodies to function optimally
