I remember writing about making my first home-made Shawarma on this blog, I was super exited about making it at home each time I crave for it. You can see recipe here.
I notice each time I walk through the vicinity of Lagos and it’s different neighbourhoods, almost every shop in each complex I enter have a Shawarma stand. Unlike few years ago where despite the price only those who could afford it would have to drive down to the likes of Mr Biggs or a well known eatery to buy shawarma.
But right now, those of us who fall slightly above the low income earners can gladly buy Shawarma whenever we crave for it.
Of course Sharwama is very healthy to eat but bear in mind that too much of it isn’t good for your body. Why ? You may ask; In as much as we love this nutritiously packed snack, it is quite important to note that anyone who indulges excessively in Shawarma consumption stands a chance to become overweight or even obese as the snack is of high calorie based on the ingredients and the average size of one serving. With this high calorie value, it could also spike sugar level.
So how do we enjoy this snack? One of such ways to enjoy the snack without the fear of high calorie is to share with a friend or your siblings. That way, you have avoided consuming about 1000kcal out of the recommended 1900-2000kcal/day for an adult.
Remember, it is meant to be a snack and most likely, you will be consuming other meals that will add to your calorie and eventually increase your weight wish if not properly controlled might result into serious health conditions.
