Are these Galette healthy?
When you are a vegan, and you decide to make something for yourself and your family, you must wonder that healthy, because here we come to the previous story – you must be well educated when you are a vegan because you must have an intake of all that your body needs.
Let us start with the flower of your choice since you can make galettes with any kind. Here, their ingredients are a flower of your choice, we must say that we know that white wheat flour is not the best choice, as you know already, or if you want to say it mildly, it is not, so that is unhealthy, but from all other flowers, this is the one that is not providing you with enough nutrients. Get to know the healthier types of flour and try to incorporate them into your diet as much as possible.
White wheat flour alone does not have many vitamins and minerals, because by processing those good wheat ingredients are almost gone, and sometimes manufacturers add some preservatives, including fructose syrup. We won’t tell you to give it up completely, but it’s advisable to combine it with other types of flour, or at least replace it with healthier options from time to time.
Maybe the best option for vegans is to try to chickpea flower that is vegan and amazingly healthy. Try chickpea flour- this is the one that gives the dishes a little nutty taste (in this case, galettes, it is full of protein, and you can use it in all dishes, from baking to soups and sauces.
It can be made with baked or unbaked chickpea, whatever you want and whatever you feel comfortable with. It has twice as much protein as whole grain wheat flour and six times more than regular multifunctional – this is what makes chickpea flower the top choice.
It is an excellent source of foliate and also contains vitamin B6, iron, magnesium and potassium. In this sense, hummus that is often described as the super food and the vegan favorite, and it truly is, and it is made out of chickpeas. So the flower from this super ingredient is also a great choice.
Another, for some maybe a bit surprising ingredient, is beer, and it is also a drink that all vegans can enjoy, naturally not too much, find a balance.
Beer that we have mentioned in one of these recipes is also vegan-friendly, and you can use it freely both for drinking and cooking, but you have to be moderate of course. There are so many benefits that come from beer and here are some of them.
So, beer is great because it strengthens bones; it contains high levels of silicon, which is good for bone health. Also, this beverage strengthens the heart; it lowers the risk of heart disease by 30 per cent as it raises the level of “good” cholesterol that prevents the arteries from getting clogged. It can give you healthier kidneys – one study found that it significantly reduces the risk of kidney stones.
In the end, it is a known fact that a bit of beer per day strengthens brain health along with the reduction of cancer risk; also, it raises your vitamin levels. It seems that beer in some moderate versions and added in some dishes, like galettes (where the alcohol has been reduced) is also a super food.
Now, the third ingredient that we want to talk about and that appears as a small maybe, but very important part of these recipes – seeds, in this case, it is the sesame seed.
Any seed that you can add to these galettes can do you good, and are amazing for your health – for example, sesame seeds are extremely rich in iron, so it is enough to bring in 50 grams of this seed to satisfy a person’s daily need for this mineral.
In addition to iron, calcium, manganese, copper, magnesium and selenium are also present in large quantities, and note for all vegans, use sesame seeds whenever you want, there are so many recipes and dishes that include it, both sweet and savory. Vitamin E, a powerful antioxidant, protects cells from ageing, the appearance of tumors and heart disease.
At the same time, it is an excellent source of thiamine B1, pyridoxine B6, niacin, folic acid and riboflavin. Sesame is another ingredient, important in protecting the liver from oxidative damage, and on long-term, it produces protection from cancer.
Any vegan must have a normal and sufficient intake of protein, calcium, iron, vitamin B12 and omega-3 fatty acids are required for the growth and development of the body.
The question is, is the intake of fruits and vegetables (vegan diet) sufficient for a healthy and proper life?
People’s research and experience say it is.
The Vegas diet is high in protein and is sure to include soy, which is a great substitute for meat, tofu, lentils, almonds, peanuts, black beans, chickpeas, various seeds.
In the previous section, we have described how any seed that you want is beneficial for you, and you can add it into galettes, or you can sprinkle them later.
In any case, if you want to make galettes, you will be surprised how well they can be incorporated in your vegan diet – they are generous and economical (over 1 kg is obtained from the bottom measure), they can stand for days without worrying about spoiling, and rare are those who do not like them.
They do well in whatever version (nibbled on with coffee, dipped in tea, on their own, with fresh fruit, with jam, with caramel cream).
As you could see all elements that are used to make these galettes are vegan and healthy.
