On a side note, do you know that banana leaves have incredible health benefits? Aside from using them as food wrappers for cooking, banana leaves contain large amounts of polyphenols such as epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, also found in green tea. They are natural antioxidants that help to fight free radicals.
Traditionally, foods are served on banana leaves in some parts of the world.
Rice, meat vegetables are all served on the same leave and it is not hard to understand why. Banana leaves have a waxy coating that has a subtle but distinct flavour. When hot food is served on the banana leaves, the wax melts and lends its flavours to the food, making to more flavourful.
Hence, making it all the more reason to try the Banana Leaf Pork Briyani.
For those who are on a clean eating diet, it is alright to put aside your diet for the day. (Cheat day you know? It helps to keep you sane.)
When dieting, you tend to eat lesser calories and carbohydrate. Naturally, your body will soon realise that it is not taking in fewer calories than it is burning, hence it will balance your calories in and calories out. Your metabolism will drop as a result. Having cheat days will help to trick your body into thinking that it is getting enough calories and the body will ignite the fat burning mechanism.
Take it as you will be having a cheat day and head down to try the Banana Leaf Pork Briyani. However, remember everything in moderation.
