Bamboo is a great alternative to metal. It is biodegradable, meaning it can be disposed of outside without causing harm to the environment. Bamboo is also known for its resiliency, strength and good luck.
You can purchase bamboo utensils at your local health food market, Whole Foods, or online. Keep in mind that I am referring to bamboo, and not wooden, utensils.
I started using bamboo utensils at home and noticed a significant difference in the way my food tasted. Surprisingly, my digestion also improved greatly. Who would have thought that utensils could really do this?
Put it to the test and you will see what I am talking about!
Please note: if you choose to use metal utensils make sure that there are not any nicks, because this can migrate into foods in trace amounts.
Play it safe and put your health first!
