Here are the top 6 items I would suggest to completely eliminate in your kitchen!
1. White Salt
With so many different options for sea salt, why limit yourself to white and refined? Plus, that stuff is so toxic! Try some pink Himalayan, gray Celtic, black volcano… options are endless and gorgeous!
2. White Vinegar
Power up your food by switching to Apple cider vinegar. I love Bragg’s the best, sweeter tasting, healthier and unheated. White vinegar is great for cleaning your toilets, apple cider is for food.
3. Regular Soy Sauce
Have you ever looked at the labels? Switch to Bragg’s Amino Acids. I know, it is a weird and confusing name, but it is a great soy sauce. Really rich tasting and not metallic. It is the “real” soy sauce. Fermented and aged.
4. Vegetable Oil
No need for it ever! When you use oil, it is best to add after cooking. In other words, heat with water, add the oil as a flavoring. That’s because oil breaks down quickly in the heat. Either way, there is no need for vegetable oil, which is usually mostly corn or soy refined oil. Use natural, unfiltered and unheated coconut, olive, sesame or other “whole” seed or nut oils.
Breaks down quickly and you get to ingest little Teflon pieces in your food after a few weeks. Go for cast iron, Stainless Steel or clay-wear.
6. White Sugar
Okay – you can save this for Aunt Milly when she comes for tea, but for your regular home use, sweeten foods and drinks with maple syrup, raw coconut sugar, stevia, raw honey, and other whole food sweeteners.
