Warning! Never reheat these 7 foods, they can poison your family


The practice of reheating food is something we all do. However, not all food should be reheated.

Some foods are safe to consume after reheating, and others aren’t and can cause damage to our organism. It may be hard to believe that some healthy foods, when reheated, can be a possible danger to us, but these healthy foods lose their nutrients after we warm them up.

Here is a list of 7 foods that shouldn’t be warmed and eaten again.

Spinach – Reheating spinach is really not safe and should 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.

Celery – People usually use celery to prepare soups. Just like spinach, 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. The same thing goes for carrots.

Beets – Beets are another food that contains nitrates, and are very harmful and destructive for the body if reheated.

Potato – 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.

Eggs – Reheating fried and boiled eggs makes them lethal for your organism, so never do that.

Chicken – 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. This is a reason for worry since chicken contains much more protein than red meat. 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.

Mushrooms – 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.

You must be careful of the types of leftovers you put in the oven or in the microwave. Avoid reheating the foods on this list in order to avoid potential health problems.

    Reheated eggs are lethal to my organism? Thanks, I’ll avoid feeding my organism leftover eggs from now on. With all of the non-information and lack of citations in this article, I’m going to continue to reheat and eat everything on this list, as many items here make their way into my breakfast burritos.
