Shawarma starts at 400 calories and at least 9 grams of fat! This number isn’t too bad, especially when compared to other food disasters but we need to watch out.
Shawarma might be an easy snack or dinner to grab on the go, but it is far from a healthy one. The marinated strips that are shaved off from the rotating cone of meat already have fat running through them, and more likely than not, they will have been doused with yet more during the cooking process. Moreover, the meat is heavily seasoned with spices which are high in sodium content.
Recently, thirty people of the same family died while eating shawarma from one of the major commercial and residential locality Shad Bagh, Lahore. According to the sources, the shawarma was poisonous, which was served at a birthday party…leading to an unwanted end!
Street food lovers never leave to eat shawarma. Therefore, it is recommended that if you want to eat this delicious wrap, you should use nutritive alternatives rather than typical unhealthy ingredients and prepare them at home.
