Healthy living is all about making small changes gradually. It takes time. You cannot expect to do everything perfectly from the beginning.
At first I made changes in my diet and lifestyle – slowly but surely. There are so many stages to a healthy life. My advice is to start small with just a few small changes.
I have immersed myself in a healthy life for quite a while now to the point where my eating choices and lifestyle are really well taken care of. I prioritise healthy living because of how well it makes me feel.
So the last year or so I have been making changes to my household and kitchen – going almost 100% chemical free with all my products. I have started educating myself on the benefits of using chemical free household products, skin care and cookware.
As a nutritionist, I know that I absorb things in my environment that can absolutely impact my health. I learnt during my days at Uni how various chemicals are known as endocrine disrupters – in other words they can affect our hormones and they are overall not so good for us – especially long term.
So I swapped out all of my non-stick frying pans for Neoflam healthy ceramic coated cookware.
Whilst non-stick coatings in cookware have been developed over the past 50 years, studies are emerging that show that substances released when some non-stick coatings are heated (PTFE & PFOA) can be harmful to human health and the environment. In fact, according to some recent research, aluminium, stainless steam and non-stick coatings that contain these chemcals have been linked to Alzheimer’s disease and various cancers. In the kitchen it’s therefore safer and healthier to use non-stick cookware and pans with no trace of PTFE and PFOA, and instead – choose non-stick ceramic coating cooking equipment.
I’m currently using all Neoflam cookware for my kitchen creations!
Neoflam’s ceramic Ecolon coating is PTFE and PFOA free and can withstand high temperatures, even on a gas stove. Ceramic coated pans are also more economical – I’ve noticed my food is cooking faster and need less oil. They’re so easy to clean too (they need less detergent because of the ceramic coating on the surface) AND can be used as serving/tableware or for fridge storage. Plus I love all the difference colours and designs – the light blue in the Retro set is my current fave.
Finally, they’re good for the environment! Neoflam reduces CO2 emissions with environmentally friendly production – offering an eco-friendly safe sustainable method of production. This is so important in our day and age of environmental sustainability.
I will keep you updated on my household swaps! Hope you’ll join me in making these changes to live a healthier life.
