Toss the Nonstick Pans
Teflon cookware used to be the gold standard for nonstick pans, but they most likely belong in the trash. "The fluorinated chemicals on traditional nonstick pans can easily leach into your food when they come into contact with heat, fat, and acids (like those in tomatoes or citrus). They are linked to thyroid damage, miscarriages, weight gain, cancers, and immune system damage," Leah shared.
It may not be in your budget to toss your pans and buy a whole new set today, but you can slowly phase them out (especially any that are scratched or worn down) for better options like glass, cast iron, and stainless steel.
