Foods That Fill You For Longer

We all love eating, but occasionally you may feel that even after chowing down on your meal, whether it’s at breakfast, lunch, or dinner, that you still feel hungry and are more inclined to rummage through the pantry or sneak into to the kitchen and stare into the humming light of the fridge until you’re coerced to snack on dessert or microwave.

Why do we get food allergies?

Making up 90% of all food allergies are these foods: eggs, milk, peanuts, tree nuts, fish, shellfish, wheat, and soy, according to ACAAI. In most cases, an allergic reaction to one type of food may mean that a person is also sensitive to another similar type of food as allergies and the properties in the food causing an allergy are linked. The reasons behind food allergies are widely diverse and due to this are unclear, and currently there exists a situation where the only available prevention for food allergies is to avoid the foods that you are allergic to altogether.

Can genes affect your taste?

We all have people who we know: friends, family, acquaintances, and work colleagues who all have distinctly different tastes when it comes to food. Some like it hot, while others…not so much. Others devour sugary treats in the blink of an eye, and without flinching, while other people wince at the sight of a rich quadruple chocolate dessert; politely declining the offer. The list goes on, but other than getting a “taste” for certain foods, are there other factors at play?
