Do you cook with a cast iron skillet? You should!

I know this doesn’t DIRECTLY deal with beauty – but my thought process is that when we are healthy and feel great – we also look great!  So – there – it DOES have something to do with beauty :)  Yes – they are an old-fashioned stand-by, but they actually provide health benefits as well!  I love, love, love my old skillet – wouldn’t trade it for anything – and when I found out it is much healthier than the non-stick versions – I was truly starstruck!  Below I listed 3 reasons to use a cast iron skillet and I hope if you do not have one you will purchase one (although an inherited one is MUCH easier to use – you know – the whole ‘seasoned’ thing).

1.  You will need MUCH less oil when using cast iron.  Again – that whole “seasoned” thing.  A well seasoned skillet renders itself virtually non-stick.  And the best part is…..you don’t have to baby it!  In fact – the more you use it – the better it gets!  That’s the very reason I asked my grandmother to leave me hers in her will!

2.  Cast iron is CHEMICAL FREE.  This pretty much seals the deal for me!  I don’t know about you – but I have read all the ills that go along with the convenience of non-stick.  The repellent coating that keeps food from sticking contains PFC’s, a chemical that is directly linked to  liver damage, cancer, developmental problems and get this…..even early menopause!

3.  This one is almost a no-brainer!  Cooking with cast iron adds, well, iron, to your food!  It doesn’t leach chemicals – it leaches iron!  And who couldn’t use a little iron in their life?  Especially women – 10% of women are iron-deficient.  So go forth and cook with an iron skillet!

Not only will you feel better – you will LOOK better too!
