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.

    In today’s world everything is out to kill us, so why even worry. We gotta die from something…

      My thoughts *exactly,* of which aluminum foil got the full brunt.
