Ceramcor Xtrema Ceramic Cookware Giveaway

We all know that eating organic, whole, unprocessed foods is the basis for good health.  But do you know what you are introducing into your foods when you cook them?  Most metal cookware contains heavy metals that leach into your food (think lead, aluminum, copper, etc.).  The easy, non-stick cookware?  They're filled with hazardous chemicals that you will end up ingesting.  Even many of the so-called “healthy” ceramic cookware have metal bottoms or plastic or other coatings on top, all of which will leach into your food.
I have been very concerned about my cookware for a long time.  I’ve felt good about using my cast-iron wok and pans and stainless steel pots.  However, I've since learned that both can leach heavy metals into my family’s food.  I painstakingly avoid aluminum and other heavy metals and chemicals in my body care, why would I allow them in my cookware?
A few weeks ago, Ceramcor reached out to me, and offered to send me their Xtrema brand 10” Skillet with Cover and 2.5Qt to try.  I was excited, as I had heard about them before (they actually manufacture Dr. Mercola’s successful cookware line). 
I love the sleek look of the cookware, and the red silicone handle makes it so easy to handle to cookware safely.  It is very sturdy, and does not scratch.  The bottom of the cookware is shaped in a way that allows the food to be heated evenly and quickly, which is important because less heating time means less nutrient destruction.  I love that it can go in the oven, stove, toaster oven, microwave (which I don’t use), refrigerator, and freezer.  And it’s so pretty, that it can go right on the dining room table.  The best part is that Xtrema is 100% ceramic, and heavy metal/chemical-free.  You can read more HERE.
