In order to cook healthy, the initial thing to keep in mind is to use healthy elements rich in vitamins, minerals, proteins, carbohydrates and other essential nutrients. They are not only essential for appropriate functioning of all the system but also keep our immune system strong so that it can efficiently fight diseases. Of this fact, many are aware and make it a point to sensibly choose a balanced diet and choice ingredients!
But there are some equally significant aspects of healthy cooking that unfortunately get ignored – mostly due to lack of awareness.
For one, the cookware we use significantly affects the quality of food cooked in it. Consider conventional cookware that’s made of diverse metals and ceramics that are not appropriate for cooking albeit being so popular. Why is it not appropriate?
Food is a biochemical entity. All metals are volatile to nutrients that are in the form of oxygen, hydrogen halogens, acids, and bases. At cooking temperature, metals disruption into ions and react with food.
They are then digested with food and accrue in tissues and organs. When this endures for long, it becomes the foundation for numerous health problems that may range from minor illnesses to chronic diseases. The immune system is compromised which as well makes it tough for the body to fight diseases on its own.
Try moving a metal pan five minutes into heating, it burns tissues and leaves a scar. Same thing occurs to the nutrients in food when cooked in metal or ceramic cookware. On one hand, the harsh heat damages the delicate nutrients by dissolving them. On the other, water-soluble nutrients fade as steam and deplete the nutritional value of food. What’s left is food lacking in nutritive significance and full of toxins.
It’s easy to catch out if your cookware is trickling, just do an alkaline baking soda test at your home to check the toxicity of a cookware!
There is no healthy cooking without healthy cookware! – one that doesn’t leach toxins into food and doesn’t mess with the nutrients. Pure clay is a healthy material that is suitable for making healthy cookware.
It can be harvested from unfarmed and non-industrialized lands, as it is initiate in deepest form at those places.
Pure clay has naturally inert properties making it the maximum non-reactive of all cookware materials in the market.
Also, they radiate a unique far-infrared heat that penetrates deep into every grain and gently cooks without destroying the elusive nutrients. They are known for their outstanding steam management properties that play a key role in preserving water-soluble nutrients. Therefore, the nutritional value of food scraps intact, making pure-clay the best choice for making healthy cookware.
