We all have a habit of storing food for later and reheating it so we can eat it when we feel hungry again. However, it is important to point out that not all foods are beneficial and good for our body when reheated, as there are a number of properties within specific foods that can cause unpleasant side-effects.
Down below is a list of 7 foods that should not be reheated no matter how hungry you are:
Beets contain nitrates which means that reheating them can cause a number of health problems. If there are any leftovers it is best to eat them cold.
Spinach is also loaded with nitrates that when reheated, are converted into nitrites that have been known to be carcinogenic. Thus, it is best to eat spinach fresh.
Chicken is loaded with protein that changes its structure when it is reheated, causing digestive issues and serious damage to the body. Either eat it cold or reheat it to a low temperature.
Eggs are also better consumed cold rather than reheated, as they can be extremely detrimental afterwards.
Believe it or not, mushrooms can cause digestive and heart issues when reheated, which is why you need to eat them either fresh or cold.
Potatoes play a huge part in cuisines all over the world, but it is still important to consume them the same day when they are cooked, if we want to preserve their nutrients, as reheating them can be hazardous for the body.
Last on our list is celery, which is also rich in nitrates that are converted to nitrites when reheated. It is mostly used in soup, a dish that is known for being delicious even when reheated, which is why you need to avoid adding celery to it if you’re planning on reheating it later.
