Product Shout Out: If You Care parchment paper
After reading this article regarding the dangers of aluminum I decided to change some of my current practices. First I decided to cut down my usage of aluminum foil, which I did by replacing it with parchment paper. Next, I began drinking green tea daily, which the article lists as one of the foods to eat to help remove heavy metals from your body. And, of course, I will continue to shop cosmetic brands that care, like Beautycounter, that don’t use aluminum powder in their products.
My next move will be to purchase a silicone baking sheet and make that my new go-to for non-stick liners. Silicone is safe and while more expensive than parchment it can be used up to 2000 times, which ends up saving you money in the long run. If you’re curious about silicone vs parchment check out his article.
In the meantime I am loving the If You Care brand parchment paper. It’s unbleached, which means it doesn’t contain toxic dioxin, it’s made from recycled material, uses silicone as a coating rather than quilon, which contains heavy metals, and it’s not made with chlorine. I found it at fairway and I am a huge fan of the brand after checking out their site. Next I want to try their paper snack bags and cooking cups. I’m curious about their paper towel too. Has anyone ever used any of these products? Thoughts?
