Trying new foods is one of the most interesting aspects of life. You taste things you’ve never tasted, learn a little more about different cultures, and experience something you never have before. Sometimes we even like the new foods we try so much that they become part of our regular diet. Because every country has their healthy and unhealthy eating habits, this can either be a really good thing, or a really bad thing. With no prior knowledge of foreign foods, it can be tricky distinguishing between the good and the bad.
Today we are going to share with you, a list of the top 5 most fattening foods from all over the world. With this list in mind, it will be a little easier to tell which foods you should just say no to.
Top Most Unhealthy Foods
1. Acaraje, Brazil
Made from black eyed peas shaped into a ball, deep fried in palm oil, and stuffed with spicy pastes made from dried shrimp, ground cashews, and palm oil. The issue with acaraje is all of the palm oil. Just one tablespoon contains 7 grams of saturated fat.
2. Churros, Spain
Deep down, we all knew churros would make this list. Churros are a pastry made of fried dough, covered in sugar and cinnamon, and typically dipped in hot chocolate. Fried dough, layers of sugar, what isn’t unhealthy about this food?
3. Poutine, Canada
Poutine is essentially french fries smothered in gravy and cheddar-cheese curds. This dish is such a popular item in Canada that even Canadian Burger Kings have picked it up. Poutine can come in many different specialized ways, however, just one order of the original will have you at 740 calories, and 41 grams of fat.
4. Khachapuri, Georgia
This dish is slightly less common than those prior. Khachapuri is a bread bowl stuffed with melted cheese, topped with an egg and a large pad of butter. Talk about a heavy meal!
5. Nutella Crepes, France
If you have ever eaten Nutella, odds are it holds a special place in your heart. Its chocolatey goodness is simply irresistible. However, you my not feel that way when you get done reading about its nutritional value. One serving (2 tablespoons) of Nutella spread has 200 calories (110 of which are from fat). When you add the crepe batter, fried in butter, you create a seriously unhealthy meal.
With these tips in mind, you’ll know which to decline next time you’re trying new foods.
