Why Say No to Deep Frying




Why SAY NO to Deep Frying?
Because deep frying can raise the risk of:

Ø  Excess calorie intake
Ø  High deposition of bad fat
Ø  Rise in level of cholesterol
Ø  Oxidative stress that can lead to cancer
Ø  Digestive disorders
Ø  Reduced oxygen level
Ø   Body pain and inflammation

Given the high risk of deep-fried food on your health, it is best to avoid deep frying and look for alternatives. Here are a few healthier alternatives to deep frying:
  • Baking 
  • Airfrying 
  • Steaming

You're Taking in Excess Calories

Deep fried food is high in trans fat and calories. When foods are deeply fried, they lose moisture and absorb fat from oil.

1 tsp of oil has almost 40 calories.
Imagine the amount of calories you take in when you fry food in oil.
Excess calories equal access fat accummulation.
Food for thought for sure!

You're adding in trans fats

When you eat deep-fried food, you tend to raise the risk of trans fats in your body.
How?
When a food item is deeply fried, the chemical structure of oil changes. As a result, it gets difficult for your body to break down such fats.

This puts you at high risk of fat accumulation in the body, further increasing the risk of obesity, heart disease, cardiovascular disease, cancer, and diabetes.

If you choose to re-heat oil, you are only adding up the trans fat content.
According to a study, when oil is re-used for frying, there is excess nutrient loss.

You're ingesting toxins

Acrylamide is a toxic substance that is found in deep-fried foods as a result of heating oil at high-temperature. This includes heating food in any form, including roasting, frying, and baking.

So what oil is healthy for baking, frying, and roasting?
Extra virgin olive oil comprises monounsaturated fats, which are relatively stable at high temperatures.
Even avocado oil shares similar properties.

Why Is Air-Frying Better?

Frying foods in an air fryer is healthier option as hot air is responsible for cooking the ingredients. As a result, foods end up crispy outside and moist inside.

Kid-Friendly Badam Oats Cookies: Sugarfree, Fiber Rich, Eggless

Recently, there is a Sunfeast advertisement on Moms Magic cookies. This has attracted my attention. So what happened next is history. As you already know me, the cookie big has bitten me badly, so I jumped into experimenting with badam cookies. I have never tasted these cookies from Sunfeast, as I do not buy outside biscuits these days. So the oats cookie recipe is the result of my own healthy baking experiment. Did the experiment disappoint?
Of course, not!

You have got to be a cookie lover to try out a new cookie every other day. My airfryer has made life easier for me, and I find it the best investment for my baking journey.
