Safest Cookware – Three Important Must Have Qualities

With so many toxic cookware in the market, it’s usual to choose an unhealthy cookware. Here’s a simple guide to help you choose the safest cookware for your family.The safest cookware should have the following three qualities:

It should be free from toxins

It should keep the nutritional value of food intact

It should be environment-friendly
The Toxins in CookwareMetals and ceramics are the most commonly used materials for making cookware these days. Ceramics are laden with so many poisonous chemicals, coatings, glazes, and enamels. These chemicals contain metal oxides. Metals have a tendency to react with every chemical substance they come in contact with, especially at high temperature, if not at room temperature. Food is a biochemical entity and when it cooks in metal cookware, the metal ions leach and react with nutrients present in food to form toxins. These contaminants are ingested with food and start accumulating in tissues, organs, and blood over time. This results in health problems and a compromised immune system.

The safest cookware would be completely free from any kind of metal or chemical toxins. The only such cookware in the market is pure clay cookware. While clay pot cooking is thousands of years old, lack of awareness caused people to switch to metals in past few decades. But as people are becoming more health conscious, they are slowly turning towards pure clay cooking again.Pure clay is the purest form of primary clay that is naturally non-reactive and free from any toxins.How Cookware Affects NutrientsThe heat from metals and ceramics is near infrared – it’s harsh heat that destroys delicate nutrients (like complex carbs) and makes food deficient in certain nutrients. The water-soluble nutrients that the body needs on a daily basis escape as steam while cooking in conventional pots. When you keep eating such food, your body stays deficient in complex carbs, water-soluble nutrients, and other essential nutrients.The food-friendly heat from pure clay pots keeps nutrients intact. They are ergonomically designed so that steam is well-managed – it stays within the pot and settles on the food after cooking instead of escaping. This makes sure the food you cook has a balanced proportion of all types of nutrients and your body gets them all.Effect on The EnvironmentDid you ever sit back and think how these shiny and colorful pots and pans affect our environment? The mining of metals calls for cutting forests on a large scale. The processing of metals and the manufacturing of cookware using chemicals, glazes, and enamels releases toxic by-products that poison the nearby water resources and wildlife. The people who work in these mines and manufacturing plants face serious health hazards. What happens to the air and land in nearby areas due to such industries is not a secret anymore. Disposing off such cookware without polluting the environment is another challenge.

On the other hand, making pots and pans from pure clay doesn’t harm the environment or the potters/makers at any stage. The clay is harvested (not mined) from the earth’s surface and its processing doesn’t involve chemicals or other toxins. And how can clay harm the environment when this is the same earth that grows food. This gift of nature only nourishes food while growing and cooking with oxygen and nutrients naturally present in it. At the end of their long lifecycle, they can be disposed off harmlessly – they go back to the same earth where they came from further nourishing it.With so many health benefits to both humans and the environment, pure clay cookware is undoubtedly the safest cookware available on the market today. It’s time we ditch toxic cookware and choose this gift of nature for cooking healthy food.

Dreams Do Not Work Unless You Do

In life, it is a fact that dreams do not work unless you do. Yet, as if by some miracle, a lot of people wait for things to happen to them. While the law of attraction states that you have to picture and focus on what you want, you must also take the necessary actions to make your dreams a reality.

But how can you stay focused on your dreams? What are the significant principles for success? Is there a code of conduct to follow?

At first, I do agree that you should begin by having big dreams, daily picturing and focusing on the things you want. But then, you cannot sit on your couch in the belief that things will fall into your laps. You have to take action, work daily, and take steps to move forward, no matter their size.

While you are doing that, you must also have the highest belief in yourself which will help you to transform your goals into reality. This code must be followed by every person who desires to be successful and pursue his dreams. You have to work hard and never give up. Otherwise, you will fail. That is the harsh reality!

Let Your Dreams Be Inspired
Do not be envious of other’s success, be inspired! Too many people are jealous instead of being inspired by success stories. And in turn, feeling in such way brings them into a negative spiral that adds more negativity to their lives.

So, you have to realize that your dreams can come true and will come true if you just continue to stay focused and take action toward them. In theory, it sounds simple. Yet, this simplicity at times is complicated to follow when you are distracted by others who gave up or try to shatter your vision.

In my life, I have met a good share of successful, self-made people. Just as I did, most worked in different activities, had diverse backgrounds and came from all walks of life. But there is one thing they all have in common, and that is they all work hard and a lot to achieve their ideas of success.

Dreams Require Work
To make your dreams a reality, you do not have to copy successful people but model them. In my opinion, success has always been about doing hard work and pushing beyond boundaries. In the past, my problem has never been to know how to reach my dreams but always about how to maintain the success that followed.

And I never understood the answer, until not so long ago. You have to keep moving forward, even after reaching your dreams. Successful people have a vision, and when they get it, they create another one. It may be by helping others achieve their goals, give back, or anything else.

Envious and jealous people always come up with words like “right place, right time, luck, overnight success” when they see someone’s dreams being realized. But the fact is when an opportunity comes, or they create it, successful people are ready and then, work harder than before to ensure and maintain success.

The Code to Reach Your Dreams
But despite some belief in the latest ‘quick money’ schemes, there is simply no substitute for hard work if you want to make your dreams come true. There is a code that is followed by all successful entrepreneurs to accomplish their vision.

Dreams Take Work
First, It is undeniable that successful people work hard. Such individuals are committed to working to dominate their market consistently. They do ten times more of everything. But how do they do it?

To succeed as well as them, you have to make work fun. If you can do it, then it stops to feel like work. You are in the process of realizing your dreams. So you should feel fulfilled and satisfied doing it. If you are not, then you need to reflect on your vision as you may not be on the right track.

To fulfill your dreams, you must enjoy the work necessary for them to be accomplished. But be careful also to enjoy life. And like anything in life takes time, practice and patience, you must commit to something you love doing. Otherwise, you will be bored, and success will never come.

Love What You Do
Next, for your dreams to become a reality, you have to model what successful people do but follow that code by creating your proper style. And the only way you can stay focused and motivated is by doing something you love.

You should not care about what other people are doing, saying or even thinking of your ideas. Other people are not the ones building your dreams and creating your success, you are. After all, it is your life, not theirs.

However, reflect on the fact that if the work needed feels like a chore, you are not going to do it as well as you could. So, while you have dreams, you have to find the work that is right for you, then work hard, push beyond the limits required and enjoy it all.

Know Your Dreams’ End Goal
Finally, you have to know what your end goal is. You have to measure and define success based on your dreams; on whatever it is you truly want. While you desire to be successful, you always have to understand your own definition of success.

Measuring goals and dreams is a good indicator of whether or not you are moving towards what you want. Successful people do a lot of work, but they do it with their end goal in mind. In evaluating the direction in which you are heading, the steps and actions you take, you can see whether or not you are progressing and if you need to adjust your path.

Of course, there are many more codes and ideas we could add to this article, as well as having big dreams and be proud of any victory you may have along the way, but for the most part, these other values come after the three above.

So, dreams do not work unless you put in the hard work. And yes, it is the principal ingredient to any success. All successful people will tell you that. But again, it is what you need, in whatever you are trying to accomplish in life. Therefore, work ten times harder!
