Livestrong also stated that the best foods for weight gain are calorie dense, meaning, they contain a relatively large number of calories with little bulk; nut, peanut butter, whole wheat, thick beans soup, avocado, sardines, soya beans, fish and dairy product like cheese fall under this category, because dairy and meats are high in saturated fat, which can cause heart disease, you should choose a low fat version.

Still on Eba

Everyone’s style of preparing it is different…

¤ some cover it to absorb the hot water

¤ others turn immediately

¤ some dilute the hot water, while some don’t

¤ some sift the shaft after pouring the garri, while others don’t
but at the end we all eat it and the Eba ends up it the stomach, goes through digestion process and so on…

But you won’t enjoy a badly made Eba;

¤ with too much lumps (Yoruba calls it koko while in Kalabari it’s “Ingboli”)

¤ made excessively soft

¤ Too hard

¤ Still having the raw taste of garri

¤ not well mixed.

My Verdict: Make your eba properly to enjoy it and don’t be in a haste because every food has an end product in the stomach, hence prepare it well.
