Holiday aperitifs give rise to massive intakes of calories. Often they include seeds such as peanuts, almonds, pistachios, cashews, etc. So, among them, which ones to favor so as not to jeopardize your figure? Answers.
The aperitif is one of the worst times to control your weight. It is a friendly moment where we meet with friends or family. Result, we discuss. And we eat without consciousness since we help ourselves and refill without realizing what we are consuming.
Among the foods found in the holiday buffets that precede the meal, we often find seeds. Almonds, pistachios, cashews, peanuts, etc. Difficult to resist. But you should know that in terms of diet, all are not the same. Overall, we can say that all oilseeds are good for you except peanuts.
But under certain conditions. They should be eaten in small quantities, and above all, plain. That is to say without salt or treatment, and not roasted or caramelized. However, most aperitifs consist ofoilseeds trade, namely processed and denatured products. A disaster for the line, but not only. Too much salt causes water retention, stimulates appetite, etc.
Without industrial processing, almonds and seeds are full of fiber, which makes it easy to get satiated. In addition, fiber stimulates intestinal transit. But they also contain fat. Granted, they fall into the good fats category, but their reputation has been a bit overrated lately. Indeed if they have dietary qualities, they are still very high in calories, and as it is difficult to limit to two or three, we quickly consume more than reason. Which is not necessarily good for your health or the line. So which seeds to favor as an aperitif or to avoid?
