Good cooking choices - yo mamma was right again.
I received an email with this article from the Environmental Working Group. They promote making better environmental choices in the products you purchase.
I thought I would pass this along for those of you trying to build your cookware and pantry's.
It turns out that once again your momma and your grandma were right. Cast Iron and Stainless Steel pots and pans are the best option in cooking and for the environment so why did we screw it up and make toxic things we don't need to use?
Also we should go back to cooking real food, the kind that requires a knife to prep it and some sweat equity to make it into a healthy meal. Buying a can of something or a processed package of something really isn't the best choice but we have grown to choose these choices more and more with the lightning speed pace that our world is going in. I would suggest that after you read this article you get off the computer and go to a farm or farmers market and buy something organic and go home and practice your knife skills and prep it and cook it in your grandma's cast iron skillet and feed it to your family instead of sitting in a chair and staring at a lighted screen. Do this a couple of times a week and you can change the world. Yes really. It all adds up.
Bring back Sunday Suppers and go out on saturday and shop at a local market and plan for your sunday with friends and family. Spending quality time with friends and family is not only good for your health but good for the world.
Get inspired. Cook something Great and pass it on.
