5 Tips for Cooking Safely

February 28, 2015 2 min read

Preventative measures that go beyond just eating a healthy diet. fish cooked 1-Wash your fruits and vegetables thoroughly. News flash! Rinsing with water isn’t good enough! This is especially true for produce without a protective outer layer. Many chemicals are used to grow produce these days and they are designed to be water resistant. Buy organic food as possible as much as possible to reduce exposure to chemicals. 2-Soak your nuts, seeds, grains and legumes. This makes them much easier to digest and absorb the nutrients by removing the natural protective coating. 3-Avoid cooking with olive oil or any refined oil for that matter. Many of us do not realize, but bringing oil past a certain heat changes its chemical make up to something similar to plastic! Yikes! This body doesn’t know how to properly digest and excrete this foreign and toxic substance adds to our toxic load and bogs the body’s down. Cook with water, coconut oil or ghee instead. 4-Use an eco-friendly alternative to a non-stick pan The substance, Teflon that is used to create the non-stick surface on conventional pans is being found in trace amounts in the body. Switching to a ceramic pan is an easy way to avoid exposing yourself to this harmful man-made chemical each day. 5-Try not to intentionally cook your food until crispy or overcooked. Avoid or limit frying and barbequing. I know that it taste better, but trust me, it is not worth it! This tip goes hand in hand with avoiding refined and heated oils. Overcooking changes the entire make-up of the foods we eat but it also creating a carcinogenic coating when frying or charring. Lighter methods of cooking such as steaming and poaching will keep as much nutrition intact as possible while reducing the risk. Click here to check out more from Gillian
