Those who are allergic to eggs have some difficulty in choosing the ideal dessert, as most of them have this ingredient in the recipe. However, for the joy of those who do not want to give up a little sweet after lunch, there is no lack of alternatives for allergy sufferers! Like the idea? Then check out our list of 4 healthy options and get ready to choose the ideal one for you:

  1. Light sweet rice

Who said you can’t prepare a delicious rice pudding without eggs in the recipe? In addition to having a fit version of this delicacy, the good news for those allergic to eggs is that it is also possible to prepare this delicious dessert without the ingredient. The only difference is that the consistency will be creamier, but the flavor will remain the same.

To keep the meal healthy, the tip is to use skimmed milk and change the refined sugar for demerara or brown sugar – which, in addition to being less caloric, are also much more nutritious.

  1. lemon pie

Another option for those allergic to eggs is the traditional lemon pie – but, in order not to compromise healthy eating with this dessert, the recipe should include coconut oil and also some type of wholemeal flour instead of white flour. In addition to having far fewer calories, these ingredients are rich in nutrients important for health – such as fiber, for example, which increases the feeling of satiety.

  1. Banana cake with chocolate

Cake without egg? It’s also possible! This version of banana with chocolate, even, is ideal for allergy sufferers who want to maintain a healthy diet or who follow a vegan diet – since it does not have any ingredients of animal origin.

In addition to not containing eggs, this recipe has the advantage of having several healthy and nutritious ingredients, such as banana, coconut milk, cocoa and wholemeal flour, in addition to chia and flaxseed – which will help to give an extra flavor to the sweet. During preparation, just mix everything to make the dough and throw the chocolate on top to finish.

  1. Chocolate Cookies

To finish off the candy list, how about some cookies? The recipe is very simple: just prepare a homogeneous dough with corn starch, some type of wholemeal flour, demerara or coconut sugar, coconut oil, water, vanilla and cocoa. Then, with it ready, mix the chocolate bar cut into cubes so that the biscuit has a kind of drops of candy. In addition to being delicious, it is super-nutritious and does not pose any risk for those who are allergic to eggs.

INGREDIENTS YOU SHOULD NOT WEIGH YOUR HAND WHEN PREPARING MEALS

Experienced cooks usually know exactly how much to put in each ingredient so that it tastes just the way they want it. The problem is that, in the habit, many end up not even questioning if they are using an exaggerated amount of some ingredient. While a little more or less isn’t really a big issue, hand weighing on some can be detrimental to your health. That’s why we’ve listed some that you should pay more attention to when preparing meals. Take a look:

Too much salt can cause hypertension

The first on the list is possibly what Brazilians weigh the most when preparing food. After all, we put salt in everything. The problem is that the foods we prepare often already contain sodium, which makes us consume much more of the nutrient than necessary. Okay, but what does it mean? Simple: too much sodium can cause hypertension and cardiovascular disease in general. Therefore, the ideal is to consume only 2 grams of salt per day, and this includes what is present in other foods, especially industrialized ones – sodium champions. Of course, it is not to cut the ingredient altogether, just to use it more sparingly.

Refined flour raises the glycemic index

Refined flour is also very present in the diet of Brazilians, even more so because, like salt, it is used in the preparation of various foods. Celiacs, of course, cannot consume it, but everyone outside this food group often exaggerates the amount of flour when preparing a dish, be it salty or sweet. The problem is that it is rich in carbohydrates, which in excess is bad, as it raises and raises the glycemic index. Quickly explaining, refined products take a lot of fiber out of the food matrix. Therefore, carbohydrate is more “available”, and this makes the glycemic index go up. It is also good to remember that this index is related to diabetes and metabolic syndrome, and therefore should not be consumed in excess. Therefore, always prefer wholemeal flour.

Brown sugar is better than refined and demerara, but it can still cause diabetes

Yes, you didn’t read that wrong, we are talking about brown sugar. This is because, although it is much healthier than refined or even demerara, it is still a sugar, so it should be used with caution. Another factor that deserves attention is that many people end up using brown sugar in greater amounts than refined sugar because it is not so sweet, and so they try to compensate for the difference by weighing their use. Remembering that sugar, in addition to being a contributing factor to obesity, can also cause diabetes, and therefore its consumption should be reduced as much as possible.

Vegetable oil is not necessarily healthier

Finally, we have vegetable oil, another ingredient often used in preparing meals. Although it helps to reduce bad cholesterol, being subjected to high temperatures can end up causing more harm than good. That’s because, at that time, it generates a substance called acrolein, which in turn accelerates aging and is associated with some types of cancer. Therefore, saturated fat, which is animal, should not always be seen as a villain, since in these cases it is more suitable than unsaturated fat.

However, it is important to highlight that not every canned vegetable has live lactobacilli – the pickle is one of the exceptions.

  1. cottage cheese

As a good dairy product, cottage cheese stands out for being a source of calcium – a mineral that helps strengthen bones, teeth and is essential for the body. Plus, it’s a less-greasy, healthier type of cheese – so it’s a recurrent choice for dieters.

But what many people don’t know is that cottage cheese is also a source of probiotics, helping in the digestion process. However, it is worth noting that it should not be consumed in excess, as it has a certain amount of sodium and fat. So remember to eat this type of cheese in moderation as well.

  1. Green olives

Widely used to season meat, risottos, salads, pies, pizzas and other dishes, green olives are also rich in probiotics. They are prepared in brine and undergo a natural fermentation – which also gives that peculiar taste. In addition, olives are sources of antioxidants, vitamin E, iron, calcium, promote blood circulation (because of iron), reduce bad cholesterol and also act as a natural anti-inflammatory.

  1. Sauerkraut

Sauerkraut is a type of pickled cabbage widely used in preparing salads and snacks (such as hot dogs). But what a lot of people don’t know is that it is also one of the main sources of beneficial probiotics. They support the health of the intestinal flora and are also rich in vitamins, fiber and other important nutrients for the body. In addition to aiding digestion, sauerkraut also strengthens immunity, contributes to heart and nervous system health.

  1. Miso

Few people know miso: a Japanese soup made from the fermentation of soybeans. But it is also rich in probiotics and helps the digestive system a lot.

SEE 4 COMMON SUMMER DISEASES

Photo by Asad Photo Maldives on Pexels.com

There are some health problems that are more frequent at the time of year when temperatures rise due to hot weather and dry weather. Maintaining care to prevent summer diseases is essential to enjoy this season with well-being and without worries.

To avoid complications, it is essential to adopt some habits when summer comes, such as the use of sunscreen and increased water intake. Want to know more about the subject? Check out the four main diseases that arise at this time and see how to prevent them.

  1. Dehydration

Hot weather, greater exposure to the sun and increased sweat production due to high temperatures are factors that make your body dehydrate quickly. As our body is mostly composed of water, Dehydration can cause tiredness, weakness, lethargy and headaches, especially on dry weather days.

For this reason, to ensure your well-being, it is recommended to drink 2.5 liters of water, juices and teas daily during the summer, as well as consuming natural foods.

  1. Skin Cancer

December Orange reminds you of the importance of preventing Skin Cancer. This is not necessarily a disease associated with summer, however, increased exposure to the sun can favor the emergence of melanomas.

The radiation emitted by ultraviolet rays is one of the main risk factors for Skin Cancer. Therefore, it is essential to avoid exposure to the sun from 10 am to 4 pm, reinforce the use of sunscreen, hats, umbrellas and sunglasses. These precautions are necessary even in the mildest seasons, however, it is important that they be redoubled during the summer.

  1. Dengue fever

Dengue is caused by a virus transmitted through the bite of Aedes aegypti. The hot climate offers the necessary factors for the mosquito’s reproduction cycle to be faster. Therefore, we can consider it as one of the summer diseases, although it is also present in other seasons. This third disease usually occurs in countries with a tropical climate.

To protect yourself from Dengue, eliminate the spaces that the mosquito uses to reproduce, that is, all sources of clean and still water. Buckets, waste baskets, toilets, plant dishes, tires and even objects on the street that can collect rainwater need to be turned over or covered.

Other prevention measures are: apply repellent on the skin (observe the re-application time in each package), use insecticides that kill the dengue mosquito indoors and use mosquito nets on the beds.

  1. Food Poisoning

The hot climate also favors the proliferation of microorganisms, such as parasites, bacteria and viruses, which can contaminate meat, eggs and other foods.

For this reason, it is common to have more Food Poisoning in this period. One way to prevent the problem is to give preference to food preparation at home, avoid restaurants or food courts that receive many people and have their dishes exposed, in addition to keeping the products well refrigerated.

As seen, summer illnesses can disrupt the fun and good times of the season. To avoid this, remember to use sunscreen frequently, drink plenty of water and prioritize a light diet, preferably at home. Also, in case of symptoms, avoid taking medications on your own.

HOW TO HAVE A MORE SUSTAINABLE CONSUMPTION WITH SMALL CHANGES IN HABITS

If you want to have a more sustainable lifestyle, the first step is to implement small changes in your day-to-day life – separate the garbage, consume more consciously and follow the logic of reuse. To help you be more sustainable and eco-friendly, we’ve listed some attitudes you can take that, when added together, contribute a lot to the environment. Check it out and put it into practice!

don’t waste food

In order to have a conscious and sustainable consumption, one of the main tips is to have total control over the amount of food purchased and the way in which it is stored (so that nothing spoils or is wasted). Ideally, you should always make a list and buy only the items you will actually use, without overdoing it.

Also, remember to store all foods properly – grains, cereals and seeds, such as rice, beans, lentils, chia and granola, should be stored in airtight glass jars. So they stay away from moths and moisture. When we take more care and control with our food, we avoid waste and the environment is very grateful!

Have you ever heard of composting?

Have you ever heard of the practice of composting? This procedure consists of transforming husks and food waste into fertilizer, which you can use directly on houseplants. For those who have a home garden, it is even more important. After all, composting is a great way to reuse organic waste from home and reduce negative impacts on the environment. To do this, you will only need a composter (box to carry out the process), earthworms and dry garbage (leaves and garden waste).

Avoid using plastic bags, as there are great ecobags for carrying your groceries

In many countries around the world – such as Rwanda, the Netherlands, Bangladesh and Taiwan – the use of plastic bags is completely prohibited. After all, as many people already know, plastic is a material that takes 200 years or more to decompose in the environment.

So, if you want to have a really sustainable lifestyle, the best tip is to abolish (or at least reduce) the use of plastic bags. A good alternative for this is to take ecobags (sustainable fabric bags) to shop at the supermarket. There are also cloths that you can use to separate different types of vegetables, fruits, vegetables and greens. These days, many people also resort to reusable kits – with stainless steel straws and silicone cups that replace plastic ones.

Recycle garbage

A basic tip that everyone can do is to separate and recycle waste. To do this, just separate them according to the categories: organic waste, plastic, glass, paper and metal. Also, don’t forget about items that must be disposed of differently (in a special waste), such as batteries, thermometers and electronics. They must be sent to proper recycling stations, so look for a place in your city that does this special disposal.

Do not dispose of cooking oil in the sink

A lot of people don’t know, but cooking oil also needs to be disposed of in a different way – stored in a pet bottle and taken to its own recycling station. When poured directly into a kitchen sink, toilet or drain, the oil ends up contaminating groundwater and soil. So, remember to throw him away the right way, ok?
