Recommended Stove Top Cookware

There are so many options for the cookware you might use in your home. I have used many different types of cookware. This includes pots and pans using various materials and non-stick coatings. Many of these non-stick coatings if flaked off for cookware can be harmful if consumed. Not to mention the need to replace otherwise still usable cookware. This is a big reason I use and recommend cast iron. The brand I use is Lodge, due to a balance between durability and price. You will use a small amount of oil to help keep the cookware non-stick. You will also find the need to re-season your cast iron cookware from time to time.

The main pan I use is the 10.25″ skillet from Lodge. Purchased my cast iron skillet back in March 2016 and continue to use it everyday. In addition to the 10.25″ skillet, I also have and use the 8″ skillet and 6.5″ skillet. Not to mention a 10.5″ round griddle, plus a 2 quart & 5 quart cast iron dutch oven. There is also Lodge silicone hot handle holder.

What Does It Mean To Be Vegan?

There are so many definitions of what a Vegan is. A Vegan is “a person who does not eat any food derived from animals and who typically does not use other animal products.” per Oxford Languages. However, being Vegan extends far beyond what one puts on their plate. But the plate is the one thing we all seem to focus on when it comes to be Vegan. So just how would one define being Vegan.

Frugal Eco Vegan

Being a Vegan can be amazing as we rely not upon animals for food or other items we consume, along with products which have been tested on animals. This leaves open plant-based options, but also products using man made materials including plastic and plastic derivatives. However, any items made of plastic or any petroleum-based product, while Vegan, may not be the best for the Planet or any of its inhabitants. This is where the Eco portion comes in. We must be mindful of choices to ensure they are “earth friendly” as is the cliche way of putting it.
