If you are on this site because you are doing the GFCF diet for somebody with autism, you know that "the diet" is about more than just using the right ingredients. It's also about reducing exposure to toxins, heavy metals, and other "junk" in our environment. And when you're talking about food, a major source of that "junk" can actually come from our cookware itself.
Many families doing the GFCF diet stop using aluminum foil. They stop using cheap-o baking sheets, and they stop using Teflon-coated skillets. Instead, they use parchment paper, stoneware, and cast iron or stainless steel.
I have followed this discussion for some time and have heard repeatedly that Pampered Chef stoneware is great. I have heard that it is the *only* stoneware on the market that is lead-free. And I got very, very jealous when I met fellow GFCF-er Anna at a "GFCF Cookfest" at her house and saw her very cool Pampered Chef stoneware baking sheet.
Well! That very same stoneware is on sale at Pampered Chef during the month of September! Time to finally get myself one of those awesome baking sheets!
And ... even better ...! During the month of September, if you order your Pampered Chef items from Penny Rogers' Pampered Chef website, she will donate a portion of your purchase to Lend4Health (my other site, where we do interest-free microloans for the biomedical treatment of autism). Just type in "Lend4Health" when you're asked for the "host" when you checkout.
So if you are looking for some great quality, *safe* bakeware, stoneware, cookware, or even some kitchen gadgetry, click over to Penny's site (HERE) and your purchase will automatically help support Lend4Health!
Here is that link again: http://www.pamperedchef.biz/pennyrogers. Just type in "Lend4Health" when you're asked for the host. Happy Shopping!
