It’s so common among many people to reheat food leftovers in order to be enjoyed at a later time. This can be somehow safe for some food but there are some specific food items that you need to avoid reheating as they may act as “pure poison” for you and your family. Different food have different nutritional values, but the ones that turn into a potential health risk when reheated must be avoided no matter how great are their nutritional values.

  • Eggs: 
    That’s a high-risk food that shouldn’t be eaten again since it becomes toxic when heated at high temperature, and result in problems with your digestive tract. However, if you have a meal that you are reheating and contains egg as one of the many ingredients, it is absolutely fine. All you need to do is to refrain yourself from reheating boiled eggs or scrambled eggs.
  • Celery:
    This is a vegetable item that contains many good nutritional values and is mostly used for soups or side dishes. However, when you are reheating the soup, make sure you don’t heat it more than once, since the Nitrate content of the celery can be a problem for your health if heated for the second time. Keep in mind that any good nutritional vegetable item that comes around the family of celery or carrots can turn into toxic substances if put into the microwave on a continuous basis.
  • Mushrooms:
    Mushrooms are one of the most well-known food that are not advised to be reheated and should be eaten and finished right after preparation. Even if you want to eat them later, make sure you eat them cold, they can still be as delicious as they were right after preparation. Mushroom’s protein and its composition will change when reheated which cause high health risk for digestive and heart problems.
  • Chicken:
    If you reheat chicken after a day or two and eat it, it can become very toxic for your health. This is because all the protein composition changes when a cold chicken is heated for the second time after being kept in the fridge for a certain time. This will cause digestive problems and acidity issues that would not make you feel comfortable. For this reason, it is better to eat your chicken cold or perhaps heat it carefully under low temperatures and adding some healthy ingredients with it, like parsely, sweet potatoes, peppers.
  • Beetroot:
    That’s another useful vegetable item rich in Nitrate, and as explained before, high amount of Nitrates can make them toxic when subjected to heat for the second time.
    So as you noticed, these food are incredibly delicious and healthy for you and should be included in your diet menu on a regular basis. However, make sure they don’t get heated again and again, since they can easily turn into toxic and irritate you with a lot of health problems

So my advice to you is to adjust the amount of food you are making to a serving size that is appropriate for you and your family, to eliminate leftovers, and so reheating.
