Food Cooking

It is best to keep meal preparation simple, cooking in non toxic cookware like glass, PFOA free non stick cook ware, or very good quality stainless steel.  Cheap and scratched stainless steel should be discarded as it can leach nickel into food.

Cook with electricity rather than gas if you can. This is safer as it reduces your chance of high exposure to carbon monoxide, which is potentially lethal.  At less lethal exposures it can cause fatigue and non specific symptoms.

People with high smell sensitivity may find cooking with highly aromatic foods problematic, this may a sign of intolerance to food chemicals (salicylates, amines and glutamate).  People who are particularly bothered by food smells may find it better to cook outside.  Alternatives to BBQ’s for outside cooking include: portable electric hot plates, grills and turbo ovens.

 

FOOD STORAGE

Foods stored in plastic containers may become contaminated with chemicals – petrochemicals, endocrine disruptors like BPA. Germ contamination may also be a concerned in plastic containers that have a lot of scratches.  It is best to store food in glass.  If using plastic make sure it BPA free, and free of scratches.

Pyrex glass containers are  good for food storage.  Food can also be cooked in Pyrex and also frozen in Pyrex. When freezing food in glass, make sure to leave at least 2 cm of air at the top.
