The world has gotten itself in a hurry, 3mins this and 5mins that. It’s good, it’s development and “making life easier” but nonetheless every coin has two sides, these advantages come with their disadvantages. For microwaving, here is a list of 7 foods you should not microwave or you should stop if you are already doing it because they can do lots of damage after been reheated.
This happens to be the most risky foods when it comes to reheating that is why I put it first. Highly recommend to consume them right after preparation. If you have to eat them the next day please eat them cold. Reheating mushrooms has a high tendency to cause digestive problems and even heart issues.
Already cooked spinach should never be warmed because it is very unsafe for overall health. It recommend to eat spinach right after being prepared.
Spinach contains high levels of nitrates which when heated can transform into nitrites and this is carcinogenic, means it can be a precursor of cancer.
Quite frequently used for soup preparations and similar to Spinach, has high rate of nitrates which converts to nitrites on heating.
Tree beets and carrots
I put them together because they are similar and also contains nitrates as mentioned above. They should never be reheated as they could gradually destructive for the body. They are rather advised to be eaten cold rather than reheated.
Highly useful food in a lot of ways but if left to stay for a day or two, lose their essential properties and dietary quality. Hence they can be dangerous and almost useless if reheated at this point.
Oh how I love eggs, the content and values are countless yet can be lethal if exposed to much heat. Please boil, fry, scramble whatever you do, just don’t microwave.
The world’s most consumed animal in the world, rich in protein even more than in red meat, making it a first choice for fitness enthusiasts and bodybuilders. Chicken once it stays the next day after being prepared, people tend to reheat before eating, this could cause some unnecessary digestive problems due to changes in protein structures that happen overnight.
It is recommended to eat chicken cold or if you must reheat, do so under low heat for long period of time.
If you can deal without microwave entirely like me, please do. I’m thinking of getting one soon though *smiles* but with controlled use of course.
Thanks for coming around once again, you keep me going. Have a healthy day. Your friendly internet neighborhood
