Mekeni Chicken Longanisa: A Healthier Longanisa Choice
Many of us have done a lot of things to get through this season of quarantine – do general cleaning, redecorate the house, explore new habits such as planting, and even spend more time in the kitchen creating dishes for the family.
The pandemic has also made us more conscious about our health. So, when we prepare dishes for our family, we are mindful on how we can put together a meal. One that is not just healthy but also delicious.
It is indeed such a challenge as healthy food is perceived to be less enjoyable. Because they are either bland or do not have much flavor. It is also believed that these foods are expensive and not easily accessible.
Mekeni presents a family specialty that can help with that. Mekeni Chicken Longanisa is the healthier longanisa choice in the market. It is made from real chicken meat and certified gluten-free so you and your family can enjoy more, guiltless.
‘Gluten-free’ longanisa? How is it healthy?
Gluten what? Just like me, I’m sure a lot of you are still unfamiliar with this term. Sure, we may have heard about it a few times in the past. But do we really know what it is? How exactly does it taste like? Or what are the nutritional and health benefits of these so-called gluten-free food?
Nutritionist Reginna Lat shares that gluten is normally found in everyday food that contain grains. Wheat and rye are the most common examples of this. Gluten-free food are usually prescribed to people who have Celiac disease or has gluten-sensitivity.
But nowadays, it is observed that there is a rising interest for gluten-free food to the general public as it may help with weight loss, reduce total caloric and sugar intake, Diabetes management and sugar control, and even bloatedness. With this, the usual favorites that you and your family eat at home have now healthier alternatives and are more accessible than before.
Though it may be an option for certain diet programs or for people who are leaning to a healthier lifestyle, it is till recommended to seek professional advice from licensed doctors and dieticians to get the best recommendation that will suit your everyday food needs.
Serving gluten-free food is not hard though, as compared before. With the help of Chef Vince Garcia, one of Pampanga’s most celebrated chefs, he has curated different gluten-free recipes using Mekeni Chicken Longanisa. Here’s one easy-peasy-cheesy recipe that you can try at home:
