You must be very careful when we have leftovers, we like to reheat and consume them for the second time. Some foods are safe to consume after reheating, and others aren’t and can cause damage to our organism.
Reheated mushrooms present the highest health risk. They should be eaten immediately after being prepared, or eaten cold the following day. When you eat reheated mushrooms, you put yourself at risk of having digestive, and even heart, problems.
Reheating fried and boiled eggs makes them lethal for your organism, so never do that.
Potatoes are very useful because they have many health benefits. However, those benefits and their dietary quality are lost if you don’t eat them the same day that you’ve cooked them. Eating them on another day and reheating them makes them dangerous for your body, instead of useful.
Chicken is exceptionally dangerous when eaten a day after being prepared. It can cause some digestive problems, because the structure of proteins changes the following day. Chicken meat should be eaten cold. If you absolutely need to reheat the chicken, be sure to do it on a low temperature for a long period.
Reheating spinach never be done. It should only be eaten immediately after being cooked. The reason for this are the nitrates that are found in the spinach. When we warm it up, the nitrates transform into nitrites, which makes spinach carcinogenic for our bodies.
People usually use celery to prepare soups. Celery also contains nitrates that transform into nitrites after being reheated. If you’ve made a soup with celery in it, you should either eat the whole soup immediately, or remove the celery before you warm the soup.
Beets are another food that contains nitrates, and are very harmful and destructive for the body if reheated.
