10 “Delicious” Leftovers You Shouldn’t Eat Even If They Are Amazing
There’s a study published in 2012 in “Sports Magazine” that shows how the nitric oxide in beets is great in helping your blood pressure and can give your workout the needed boost. At the same time, those compounds react badly in contact with heat.
When foods that are rich in nitrates are cooked, and then not cooled properly, they might be carcinogenic, because they transform into nitrosamines. So, if you regularly eat reheated beets or beet products, you might want to reconsider these leftovers a little bit. It’s best to look out for all the root veggies that are high in nitrate, like turnips, for example.
