Your kitchen is probably the hub of your home, and where your food is prepared (and often consumed). For this reason, having a healthy, toxic-free kitchen matters. Having a healthy kitchen is about much more than just food, however.

Here are a few steps to a healthier kitchen.

1. Store your food carefully.

We should all know by now by storing your food in plastic is not a good idea.  Recent studies show that items advertised as BPA-free might not be as safe as you think. Your safest best is to use glass containers instead.

2. Ditch the coated cookware.

Your non-stick pans might contain teflon and other materials that you do not want to end up in your food.  Instead, try stainless steel or cast iron cookware. For tips on removing burned on food, click here.

3. Use safer cooking utensils.

Heated plastic leaches chemicals into your food. Try healthier alternatives such as wood, stainless steel or bamboo.

4. Use green cleaning products.

For a healthier kitchen, avoid anti-bacterial products.  Use green cleaning products to clean your kitchen and your dishes, and consider the original and extremely effective non-toxic cleaner, steam!

5. Avoid canned foods.

I know canned foods are convenient. Did you know, however, that the components used to line the cans might contain BPA? Do your research and choose wisely.
