Nourishing the Future: Building a Health Legacy in Your Kitchen

There's no better time to begin your journey toward optimal health and rejuvenation than now. There's one vital thing to do first — detox your kitchen. 

Learn how to remove toxins from your kitchen and which nourishing items to use in their place. After all, when you're surrounded by healthy ingredients and quality cookware, you're more inspired to create wholesome meals. 

Revitalizing Kitchen Essentials 

According to the 2022 Food and Heath Survey published by the International Food Information Council (IFIC), 48% of consumers rank toxins as their number one food safety concern. Chemicals are also present in some cookware and cleaning products, putting our health at greater risk. Our guide will help you discover how to detox your kitchen in 12 simple steps. 

1. Drink Purified Water 

Water is considered the source of life — but the quality of the water you drink makes all the difference. AquaTru® offers a range of water purifiers that remove dangerous contaminants with a four-stage reverse osmosis process. The result is clean, pure water that delivers nourishment with every sip! Drinking ample amounts of pure water will help you flush your body and embrace better overall health. 

2. Add Sustainable Spices

The right spice can turn even the most simple ingredients into a flavorsome meal. Burlap & Barrel offers an exciting range of spices and herbs to liven up your spice rack and inspire your cooking. From warming cinnamon to smoky paprika, their spices are sure to captivate your tastebuds. The best part is this company helps connect local farmers with high-value markets, helping eliminate inequality and exploitation in food systems. 

3. Sprinkle Pure Salt

What once was a currency in ancient Rome is now a staple in every household. Salt is used in savory and sweet dishes alike, making it essential in your kitchen. However, as approximately 90% of all table salt contains microplastics, finding a reliable salt supplier is a must. Jacobsen Salt Co. comes to the rescue with its premium briny salt. Their harvest process includes pumping, filtering and transferring natural seawater to a reverse osmosis machine for ultimate purity. 

4. Bake With Organic Flour

Flour is the base ingredient for all the best foods in life — pizza, pasta and bread. Sunrise Flour Mill makes it easy to create these delicious items at home with their range of organic flours. By using an innovative unified milling system, they create fluffy flour that is generally considered more digestible than conventional wheat flour. They also grow their wheat on nutrient-rich farms that are free from chemicals. 

Our pans are completely nontoxic, PTOA-free and PTFE-free, so you can count on them to help cook nutritious meals for years to come.

5. Choose Ceramic Cookware 

If you're looking for high-quality, safe cookware, Xtrema has what you need. Unlike standard ceramic-coated pans, Xtrema cookware is made from 100% handcrafted ceramic. Our pans are completely nontoxic, PTOA-free and PTFE-free, so you can count on them to help cook nutritious meals for years to come.

6. Use Nontoxic Cleaning Supplies

Gone are the days when cleaning kitchen surfaces required vaporous cleaning products that caused you to feel light-headed. Nontoxic cleaning products are just as effective and better for you and the environment. We love using these products in our kitchen: 

  • Dish soap and dishwasher detergent: Attitude's cleaning products contain natural ingredients and come packaged in 100% recyclable cardboard. The range is tough on grease yet gentle on the planet. 
  • General cleaning: Branch Basics and Force of Nature help you detox your kitchen — and the rest of your house — with nontoxic laundry detergent, stain removal solutions, multipurpose cleaners and more.  

7. Switch to Reusable Paper Towels

Paper towels offer a great alternative to bacteria-prone sponges, yet their single-use purpose takes its toll on the environment. Papaya provides an earth-friendly solution with its collection of reusable paper towels. By reusing each sheet, you keep 17 rolls of paper towels out of the environment. Papaya's fun designs also make these sheets a colorful addition to your kitchen. 

8. Select Clean Meat Sources 

If you're a fan of a good burger or quality steak, you'll know the importance of selecting meat from clean sources. We trust Reil Ranch and Wild Pastures to stock our kitchen with grass-fed beef, wild-caught seafood and pasture-raised chicken and pork. These hormone-free meats help you nourish your family with quality, home-cooked meals.

9. Brew Clean Coffee 

A cup of joe offers many health benefits and a vital energy boost at the start of the day. Purity Coffee helps you gain the full extent of these benefits with its organic coffee beans. Each bag is certified free of mold and mycotoxins, allowing you to enjoy a delicious coffee with up to twice as many antioxidants as other brands. 

10. Fill Your Pantry With Organic Staples

When you stock your pantry with quality staples, you have all the essentials on hand for nutritious meals. Thrive Market and Azure Standard make it easy to shop for non-GMO and organic groceries online. From natural snacks to fresh produce and meats, they have all the items on your grocery list, helping you live a healthier lifestyle. 

11. Opt for Safe Storage Solutions

Whether you're prepping meals for the week or you want a reliable way to save leftovers for the next day, our safe storage solutions are your answer. Both our FridgeX and Storit containers and bags are made from premium food-grade silicone, ensuring your food stays clear of harmful chemicals. They're also reusable and eco-friendly, allowing you to pack lunches for the family without impacting the environment. 

Glass storage solutions are another great option, as they won't leech, stain or smell even with regular use. The Ello range of glass containers, canisters, bowls and cups is a firm favorite in our kitchen. 

12. Shop Local

Sourcing fruits and veggies from local producers helps you lower your carbon footprint, boost community connections and grow your local economy. As the produce is locally available, there's no need to coat it in chemicals to ensure it's fresh on arrival. FarmMatch helps you find a local supplier for nourishing produce.
