The crepes are veal, rabbit or turkey meat that is wrapped in a pork strainer that is fat before cooking.
This is very good and can perfectly adapt to a family kitchen especially that it is very quick to do. For those who follow a slimming diet on the other hand, it is not as obvious as that to know what is good or not for the line and for the efforts already provided. Explanations about the crepes and the diet.
The crepes is full of calories
The crepes is about 300 calories per 100 grams. That’s a lot of knowing that one serving equals 200 grams and the caloric intake a woman needs is 2,000 kcal a day and for a man 2,500 kcal a day. This is offset by the fact that the crepes fit perfectly into the main meals of the day. They can therefore be used as a main dish during the day.
How to integrate the crépinettes into a diet?
The crepinettes are caloric, but this is offset by the fact that it is full of protein which satiates quickly and is used during the main meals.
The best is to consume it at lunch and not at dinner. Cooking must be controlled and contain as little fat as possible to keep caloric intake low enough.
So prefer cooking in the oven rather than that in the pan that requires a little oil. But cooking with the pan may be appropriate if you know how to control the fat content. Avoid the sauces with thick cream, for example, because it brings a lot of fat and increases the caloric value of the dish.
Also be careful with the side dishes, use vegetables for a well balanced meal and finish with a fruit.
