The Hello Goodbye Series: Sauce Pan Replacement

As March rolls in, I'm starting a new blog series about the healthy household changes we are making around here.  Essentially, I'll be highlighting products that we are either introducing or removing from our household because of potential health benefits or risks involved in their use.  Since replacing all products in our house that we'd like to at the same time would be prohibitively expensive, we're taking it slowly knowing that every small change we make will have a positive impact on our overall health.

I think you'll get the idea pretty quickly with this first post.  Here goes.

Hello Stainless Steel Sauce Pan:
Home Goods

Good Bye Teflon coated sauce pan:

Garage Sale Bound

While the jury is out on the potential risk of using Teflon coated pots and pans.  It is known that if the Teflon surface is scratched, chemicals can seep into the foods you are cooking in the pans.  Stainless Steel is very inert.  Teflon is questionable.

Result:  Goodbye old Teflon pan, hello stainless steel beauty!

Note:  Many of our changes have been brought about after reading, The Healthy Home By Dr. Myron Wentz and Dave Wentz.  While the authors admit that there isn't science to support all of their suggestions, common sense tells us that less inert products and all natural products are better for us.  Also, they encourage readers to question the products that we use on a daily basis.  Just because a company manufactures something, doesn't mean that the product is safe.

And as always, I appreciate any kind of feedback you may have.  We are very much learning as we go, and we're eager to educate ourselves and make our home as healthy as possible!

Have a wonderful weekend!!
