Eco-friendly and Non-toxic Cookware
Climate change, global warming, pollution, etc. have become pressing problems that require immediate attention. Green living is slowly picking up pace and today’s eco-conscious generation is making choices like clean eating, eco-friendly utensils, organic food products, etc. for the betterment of their health and the planet. Clean eating does not end with the ingredients that are used in the food.
Cookware plays an important role in the overall quality of food. But surprisingly, the cookware often gets a secondary consideration. Or none at all. The fact is that the cookware you use has an equal impact on your health as the ingredients used. The reason is that a lot of cookware is made of toxic and subpar materials like Teflon, uncoated steel, aluminium, etc. that can seep into food while cooking. These materials are harmful to your health and the environment both. These products release toxic chemicals when heated and their limited lifespan makes them non-sustainable too.
The alternative? Ecofriendly cookware.
In ancient India, cookware was mostly made of natural materials. Ayurveda vouches for such cookware for managing a healthy lifestyle. Eco-friendly and non-toxic cookware made from materials like cast iron, glass, ceramic, carbon steel, clay, etc. reduces the chemical exposure. It helps you cook healthy and tasty food.
