Day 54 – Done with Teflon

If you haven’t already discovered how great it is to cook with cast iron frying pans instead of teflon, you have to try i!  I made the switch years ago, and I’m a complete convert.  Aside from being really easy to clean, I can use whatever implement I want and don’t have to worry about scratching.  Oh, and I don’t have to worry about my “non-stick coating” breaking down and leaching scary chemicals into my food.  So that’s a bonus.

But there is teflon in other products too, and they’re all bad for the environment.  Windshield wiper fluid, carpets, stain resistant clothing, etc… (You can read more about it here, if you’re interested – http://www.ewg.org/node/21787).  So my pledge is to check ingredient lists, and not buy anything containing Teflon.  Bring on the stains!
