Cast Iron Cookware

 

Cast iron is becoming popular once again. Cast Iron Cookware May Actually Improve Health.

 

PROS:-Cast iron is relatively inexpensive, durable and is great for cooking also known for its durability and even heat distribution. Cast iron cookware can also help ensure that eaters in your house get enough iron—which the body needs to produce red blood cells—as it seeps off the cookware into food in small amounts.

 

Unlike the metals that can come off of some other types of pots and pans, iron is considered a healthy food additive by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration.

 

CONS:- On the flip side, it can be heavy and might require considerable amount of maintenance. Also, when it is new it will have to be seasoned.

 

Suggestions:

 

Keep cookware well-coated – To prevent rust damage, the inside of cast iron cookware should be coated frequently with unsalted cooking oil.

 

Use detergents sparingly – It should not be washed with strong detergents or scoured and should be wiped dry immediately after rinsing.

Add healthy options" to your diet instead of taking away. | NUTRILIFE  HEALTH  MANAGEMENT | Scoop.it

When starting a diet programme think of ways you can "add healthy options" to your diet instead of taking away.

For example:- Try adding a fruit, nuts to your mid evening snack

This way you'll end up eating a healthier, more satisfying and tastier array of foods over the course of the day.

This strategy is much easier to stick to than a day filled with continually saying no, no, no to various foods and drinks.

Aluminium cookware and Copper cookware

Aluminium cookware and Copper cookware | NUTRILIFE  HEALTH  MANAGEMENT | Scoop.it

Aluminium cookware

 

Aluminium carries a substantial risk of toxicity and is hence not a safe option. Many studies in the recent past have shown that leaching of aluminium into food can put one at risk of diseases such as Alzheimer’s and even cancer (as per a few studies). However, scratch-resistant, anodised aluminium cookware is safe, as it prevents leaching of the metal into food. But make sureyou throw them away if you see it chip away.

 

Copper cookware

 

Copper too is listed as a toxin, however, due to copper being one among the many essential minerals that the body requires, many experts categorise it as a desirable cookware material. Also studies show that the amount of copper that leeches into food (when cooked in 100% copper cookware) is negligible. Additionally, copper offers excellent heat distribution, making cooking uniform and quicker. However, copper reacts with acidic food.

Non-stick cookware

Non-stick cookware | NUTRILIFE  HEALTH  MANAGEMENT | Scoop.it

Non-stick cookware

 

Easy to clean and incredibly popular, this cookware is still considered potentially toxic by some experts.

 

PROS- Yes, non-stick cookware cuts down your cooking oil consumption, so if you want to use it make sure you replace your non-stick pots and pans at regular intervals, chuck them out at the sight of any flaking. To prevent the coating from detaching from the pan, alwayscook on low heat, use non metal (wooden) ladles, and wash by hand with warm, soapy water. Also, never wash it while it’s still hot. Nonstick cookware should not be left unattended or allowed to get very hot without food in the pan.

 

CONS:-Non-stick coatings have a potential risk of toxicity, and are even known to be carcinogenic. Non-stick cookware is typically coated with Teflon, a polymer. There are also other coatings such as Silverstone, Tefal and Caphlon. Caphlon combines aluminium with non-stick materials, while aluminium is a toxic material, any other non-stick material too can be dangerous if it leeches into food.

Foods that you can eat to lose weight fast - Just for Hearts

Foods that you can eat to lose weight fast - Just for Hearts | NUTRILIFE  HEALTH  MANAGEMENT | Scoop.it

Health, Heart, Lifestyle and More...

It is very important to know what you can eat while on weight loss rather knowing what to avoid.....

Losing weight and having a good shape is one of the things that women want to achieve in life. To give women a boost on losing weight, it would be best for them to think that trying to lose weight and engaging into a certain diet plan don’t just mean eating less and cutting things out of your diet. Here are a few foods that women like you could eat and could help you lose weight fast.
Salad
Consuming a low-calorie salad before your main meals is a great way to help you to lose weight and ensure that you get daily intake of veggies. Also, see to it that you don’t drown yourself into a fatty dressing. Spice it up with a little olive oil and balsamic vinegar and this shall make the perfect healthy accompaniment to your fresh salad.

Vegetable Soups
One of the latest trends in weight loss research is the concept of calorie density. This concept is all about how the body pays more attention to the amount of space your food takes up in your stomach than it does to the amount of calories you’re consuming. As you eat foods with a low calorie density, you would be able to feel fuller. This makes vegetable soups as great option to lose weight fast. You could have them serve as a starter or a light meal and watch how quickly you will feel satisfied.
Oats
Oats contain high fiber that is why this food makes you feel full and satisfied longer. In addition to this, consumption of whole grains has also been shown to contribute in the process of losing weight. To obtain the best benefits, it would be advisable for you to eat oatmeal for breakfast or have instant oatmeal instead if you have no more time and you prefer to eat at work.
Almonds
It is true that all nuts are healthy and loaded with good fats and other nutrients, however almonds are the best when it comes to trying to lose weight since these contain fewer calories compared to other nuts.

Cholesterol: Your Body is Incapable of Making Hormones Without It

 

Not only is cholesterol not bad, it is one of the most vitally important substances inside of your body. Every cell of your body is made from it, and ALL of your steroid hormones are synthesized from cholesterol, including all of the sex and adrenal hormones. This includes cortisol and corticosteroids, DHEA, the estrogens, testosterone, progesterone, aldosterone, and the master steroidal hormone, pregnenolone.

 

Cholesterol is the precursor to all of these hormones. It is no surprise that some of the many symptoms associated with taking cholesterol-lowering medications are: fatigue, muscle wasting, loss of sex drive and adrenal fatigue.

What is the safest of all Cookware????

What is the safest of  all Cookware???? | NUTRILIFE  HEALTH  MANAGEMENT | Scoop.it

 

Your cooking vessels must be made of materials that do not peel, chip, vaporise, dissolve, flake or crack easily. Additionally, it also ought to be a good conductor of heat to ensure your foods is cooked evenly. Certain types of cookware are known to be hazardous to health.

 

You may consider using a stainless steel pan as the primary cookware, while owning an inexpensive nonstick pan for those sticky or delicate foods, such as eggs or fish, pancakes.

Informed consumers may also want to consider other options besides stainless steel and nonstick cookware. Cast iron cookware is also now making a comeback among serious home cooks, with its own set of advantages and disadvantages as seen earlier like it is known for its durability and even heat distribution. Cast iron cookware can also help ensure that eaters in your house get enough iron.

 

So in short….Stainless steel with a copper bottom or cast iron cookware for regular cooking. Nonstick cookware to cook specific food requiring less oil.

 

Important thing to remember to replace any chipped, peeled cookware immediately to avoid any health risk….

 

Enjoy Safe n healthy cooking

Stainless-steel cookware

Stainless-steel cookware | NUTRILIFE  HEALTH  MANAGEMENT | Scoop.it

Stainless-steel cookware

 

PROS: Stainless-steel surface is by far the safest cooking surface although it might require a little greasing every time you cook. It is more sturdy, durable and is less prone to leeching with long life span. Stainless-steel pans and pots have an inner core of iron, chromium, manganese, or sometimes even copper or aluminium. Since the aluminium or copper is sandwiched between two layers of steel, there is no chance of it leeching into your food, unless your stainless steel cookware is dinged and pitted, the amount of metals likely to get into your food is negligible.

 

CONS:- Users of stainless steel pans may have some difficulty with food sticking to the pan, and therefore more cooking oil is required. It can discolor and lose its shine quickly.

 

However, it’s best for you to buy stainless-steel cookware with a copper bottom, as copper being a good conductor of heat, distributes heat evenly, cooking food faster and uniformly.

 

Watch out for other cookware, aluminium, copper in the coming post.
