Hello! My Name is Aluminum Foil!
Let us begin here:
I came across an article the other day outlining the evils of using aluminum foil in the kitchen around…*gasp*…your food. Your children’s food. Your dog’s food.
Now I know you’re wondering what in the world Inigo Montoya and aluminum foil have to do with each other. Well, just take a look at this:
Granted, my GIF game is not as strong as most people’s (how in the world do I get the words out from the middle of the screen?) but I think my point is made.
In a crazy tiny nutshell, here are the reasons using aluminum foil is BAD:
- linked to osteoporosis
- negatively affects brain function
- linked to Alzheimers
In a crazy tiny nutshell, here are the reasons cooking with aluminum foil is GOOD:
- I don’t spend hours scrubbing burnt solid meatloaf bits out of my loaf pans
- I don’t spend hours scrubbing burnt solid jalapeno popper bits off my cookie sheets
- I don’t spend hours scrubbing horrible gelatinous bacon grease off my roasting pan
- FOIL DINNERS
There’s a lot of redundancy in this post, I realize that.
But stop and think about it. Would I rather lose years off my life scrubbing non-aluminum foil wrapped pans while my family frolics outside or lose years off my life because I used aluminum foil so I could go frolic outside with my family?
Either way, I’m dying early. So today I pick no scrubbing and say YES to aluminum foil.
Prepare to die.
