The past year has made one thing clear – eating healthy is a necessity to keep our immune system strong so it can fight infections. If healthy eating is your goal for the new year, here is something that will help you achieve it – choosing a healthy cooking pot. Keep reading to know why.
Why a healthy pot is important for healthy eating?
Choosing fresh, locally grown (over imported) and organic varieties of nutritious ingredients is one key to cooking healthy food. But it is equally important to make sure these ingredients retain their health value after cooking. And for that, we need a cooking pot that is non-toxic, non-reactive to nutrients and cooks food nutritiously.
How to choose the right healthy pot?
Conventional pots made from metals and chemical laden ceramics are toxic to food because they leach toxins into the food you are cooking. Also, the harsh near infrared heat destroys more delicate nutrients like complex carbohydrates, phytonutrients etc. Eating such contaminated food causes accumulation of toxins in blood and organs which becomes the foundation for serious health problems.
The right pot must be made from a 100% non-toxic and inert material – the only known natural option is pure clay. And Miriams Earthen Cookware is the only US based company that makes pots and pans using pure clay from locally sourced lab tested (see test results) raw material. Each piece is individually handcrafted without using chemicals or additives.
MEC’s pots do not leach toxins like ordinary cookware and cook with gentle far infrared heat that preserves nutrients. The ergonomic design of the pot and lid makes it possible to manage steam and retain the water soluble nutrients. As a result, food cooks evenly and thoroughly at less heat and taking about the same time or less.
MEC’s versatile cooking pots can be used to cook soups & stews, rice & grains, many baking recipes, Dutch oven and slow cooking recipes, yogurt, herbal teas & decoctions and so on. And these can be used with any heat source – gas stove, electric cooktop, and oven.
This ability to cook uncontaminated, healthy, and nutritious food in the most nutritive and non-toxic way is the reason these cooking pots should be on top of your list in 2021.
