Red Flag Product Swap! Aluminum Foil ➜ Parchment Paper

Common doesn’t always mean right. There’s a kitchen staple that many families use daily - aluminum foil - that is high up there on my 🚩 product list.

Aluminum has been linked to a greater risk of Alzheimer's, Parkinson's Disease, and Multiple Sclerosis. And it's been found to leach into food when used in cooking. These heavy metals have also been shown to have crossed the blood-brain barrier in many children with neurological issues.

Don’t stress, though. There is a safer swap - unbleached parchment paper.

Why do I prefer unbleached parchment paper?

✨ No transfer of harmful substances

✨ Prevents sticking

✨ Eco-friendly and biodegradable

I personally use it when baking and air frying. If you try it, stay nearby to ensure it is a safe option in your kitchen. There are also parchment bags for packing foods that can help you avoid plastic ziplock-type bags and aluminum foil wraps. Safer for our bodies AND the planet.

Below are two links for alternatives that you can purchase from my go-to, Amazon.
