Healthful Habits: A Tale of Stickiness

Healthful Habits is a way for our family to intentionally implement a more wholesome style of living one small step at a time. The process of executing these small changes over the course of a year enables them to become lifelong habits.

"We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence, then, is not an act, but a habit."
{ Aristotle }

We as a culture have known about the dangers of non-stick for a long time. That's why you are told things like "dispose of your non-stick cookware as soon as it becomes chipped or scratched" and "never heat a non-stick pan when empty".

Several years ago, our family decided it was time to say goodbye to our non-stick skillets. Goodbyes are more fun when they're mixed with hellos.

After bidding farewell to my non-stick skillets {somewhat sentimentally since one was my first Valentine's gift from Kyle}, I finally invested in this cast-iron skillet*. No more crumpled pancakes or burnt French toast! A future with eggs cooked to perfection and crispy fried bacon awaits our family... and we are looking forward to it.


After a little research, I came across these instructions for removing the soy-based coating on your cast iron and replacing it with one in keeping with our healthful habits.
