When people find out I have a food blog, one of the first things I'm asked is “so, what kind of food is on your blog?” Holly and I would agree that our response to this question has evolved over the years, and in the last 6 months we feel our mission has really become more transparent than ever: delicious, approachable meals that are seasonal and (mostly) healthy. As we've clarified this vision over the course of four years we've tested countless recipes and countless cookware options in the process, and it's pretty safe to say that if there is a fancy kitchen gadget out there we either own it or have used it.


...healthy cooking starts with healthy cookware...

Avocado, Chèvre and Bacon Omelette

While there is a time and a place to use cookware with all bells and whistles, for me that time does not include preparing food for my family on a Tuesday night (just before rushing out the door to any number of social or sports activities) or when making breakfast on a lazy Saturday when I really just want to still be sleeping. No. On those days I go for ease in the kitchen. Ease in heat distribution, cooking time, and clean up. I want it all easy. So with that in mind...hello GreenPan! You are my new best friend. And being that it’s your 10 year anniversary, I’m just sorry it took me so long to find you, but now that I have I will never let you go.

The Modern Proper has teamed up with GreenPan, along side some of our favorite bloggers, to let you in on a little secret: healthy cooking starts with healthy cookware. We’ve all heard the bad news about what goes into non-stick pans, right? I’ll be the first to admit that when a non-stick pan starts peeling I immediately jump to the worse case scenario that I’ve poisoned my family. Even so, I just can’t be bothered scrubbing stainless steel or copper until my hands are cracking! Ain’t nobody got time for that. Fortunately GreenPans are made with a ceramic, non-stick coating from all natural non-toxic materials. They're resistant to high heat and they won’t easily chip or peel. Sounds like magic, huh? Well it's not, it’s just innovative design. GreenPan is the first on the market to use ceramic to create a non-stick finish, which is a whole lot smarter and heck of a lot healthier than those traditional non-stick pans. I decided to put these pans to the ultimate test by cooking the stickiest food I could think of...eggs. As you can see in every single photo there was no sticking. None. Nada. Nothing. Bonus! I didn’t have to use 3 tbsp of butter to achieve such great results. GreenPans are just that good. 

I really could have just tested a fried egg, but I went for it with my favorite omelet of creamy chèvre, perfectly ripe avocado, and crispy bacon. And just as soon as I was done scarfing down that delicious bit of heaven, I went ahead and did a pot and pan purge in the name of simple living and a healthier future. Now I can keep things easy in the kitchen and not worry about slowly compromising the health of my family. I call that success.
