EWG's kitchen tips
Whether you're dressing the turkey or just filling up a veggie tray, chances are you're going to spend a lot of time in the kitchen this holiday season. I know my family and I will be.
This much cooking means lots of leftovers and plenty of decisions about how to eat healthiest this holiday season. We could all use some tips to help us in the kitchen and in the grocery store - that's why I put together my Holiday Kitchen Tips. These should make it a bit easier for you to shop for healthier foods and stock your holiday kitchen, so that you can truly enjoy peace of mind in this season of joy.
Click here to read my Holiday Kitchen Tips and learn how easy it is to create a healthy and environmentally friendly kitchen for the holidays.
My kitchen is always full of friends and family during the holidays. As EWG's head of research I'm constantly looking for ways to teach people how to avoid dangerous chemicals - and cooking together gives me the opportunity to show how eating better doesn't have to be hard.
Check out my Holiday Kitchen Tips - your guests will thank you and your family, too! You'll learn how (and why) to:
- Choose food low in added chemicals and pollutants.
- Use non-toxic cookware.
- Store and reheat leftovers safely.
Getting into the holiday spirit is more fun when you know you're serving up food that's better for your friends and family - and the environment.
I hope these tips will make it easier for you to enjoy a healthier, greener holiday season.
