Since I've been posting so much today on the different things I've tried that have helped me to feel so much better, I wanted to post on one more. I got rid of my non-stick coated cookware and recently purchased a great set of copper bottom pans. Mostly stainless steel. I remember as a kid before the non-stick came out that it was really hard to clean the old type of pans. Not any more!! These clean up as easy as any of the non-stick coated type of pans. And I have messed up already and do KNOW this! I got mine on sale at Macy's for a really good price and noticed while researching that it seems to be something that will be "big" again in the future. (The prices of some are outrageous!!) Non-stick coated pans kill birds in the home if they heat up without anything in it, or if you over heat and the liquid evaporates out. That can't possibly be good for us to cook all of our meals in. I didn't really have the money for these but considered all the steps I've taken for my health lately to make it worth the price. I'm worth the price as is my family. I'm having a blast cooking again, knowing that my pans aren't going to kill anything!! Hugs to all, Nancy B.
