NUEVO AÑO’ NUEVA COMIDA DELICIOSA Y PARA bajar de grasa

Comienza un nuevo año para muchos. Para mí es un día mas ya que yo no hago cambios ni promesas en este momento. Nunca lo he hecho, no he logrado planificar ni dividir mi vida en años. Creo que mi creatividad se cortaría, o a lo mejor cambiaría pero no crecí con esa estructura. Mi meta al final del año es pasar la locura de la época navideña y lograr la maravilla de unir a toda mi familia en un lugar para dar gracias a Dios, el Dios de cada uno, por mantenernos unidos. Repartidos por lugares diferentes del planeta nos toca movilizarnos en las fechas mas concurridas del año para obtener el premio mayor, estar juntos en Navidad. 
La comida, como un regalo de vida, se vuelve el centro de las festividades en esta época recientemente pasada, y por eso generalmente subimos un poco de peso. Ya de vuelta a la vida real, encontramos que la ropa nos aprieta un poco y que queremos volver a nuestro ritmo y estilo de vida previo. Para muchos esto puede ser muy aburrido. A ratos creemos que una pechuga a la plancha, sin grasa, vegetales al vapor y hojas verdes sin cremosa vinagreta es la solución. Pero hoy les traigo unas recetas espectaculares para las próximas semanas, muy fáciles de preparar y que los van a devolver a su talla sin darse cuenta.
Hace algunos año escribí el libro ¨Cómetelo Flaca¨, (iTunes : https://itunes.apple.com/us/book/cometelo-flaca/id660273770?mt=11 y AMAZON: http://www.amazon.es/Cometelo-Flaca-Patricia-McCausland-Gallo-ebook/dp/B00DB4NE0A ) para todos los que amamos el sabor, aroma, textura y color de lo que comemos. En este maravilloso libro van a encontrar recetas que se volverán de su uso diario y no solo de momentos de crisis. Antes de comenzar este grupo de recetas voy a regalarles la forma mas fácil y rica de preparar ensaladas. Esto no está en ningún libro… Es sencillamente comprar un buen aceite de oliva, ojalá no comercial, sino de un pequeño productor, y un vinagre de la misma calidad. Si logran conseguir un vinagre de los que venden recién embotellados en las nuevas casas de aceites de oliva y vinagre que están apareciendo en el mundo, no necesitarán comprar o hacer ninguna vinagreta jamás. Un tris de sal y pimienta es todo lo que deberán agregar a sus hojas verdes.
Pero cuando necesitemos una variedad, utilizando la delicia de frutas tropicales que tenemos en Colombia, aquí les dejo una receta de aderezo de mango para sus ensaladas, espárragos, repollo y muchos vegetales mas. En el próximo blog les enseñaré a preparar la ensalada perfecta y así poco a poco vamos a tener un año de comida sana que disfrutar, pero quiero que entiendan la razón detrás de cada receta y de porqué necesitamos productos frescos para lograr nuestra talla, reducir el nivel de grasa corporal y obtener una vida sana y enérgica.

The Mediterranean Diet and Obesity Challenge

From Pachi to YOU !!!!  In my humble opinion…….Just arriving from Milan this week, while working on a book with a scientist and writing recipes for his students, I came to a startling conclusion. Studies may show many versions of dietary habits and the various populations of the world, but none has been able to come up with a theory that will reduce obesity in the US.
The one single diet that is being talked about the most in Universities nowadays, the Mediterranean diet, will never be able to get the american population back into track. European way of life, is what is most different in the characterization of these humans. And this, can not be copied in the societal structure of the US.
For one, the fact that Europeans sit and enjoy the food they eat and the wine they drink, is one of the major differences in both societies. The level of hormonal stress in each eating atmosphere is completely different and begins one of the cellular intoxications of one and allows for the emotional detox of the other.
Weekends, especially sundays are days for families to walk around town, sit and watch others, take the train to towns where friends or family will meet them for a glass of wine or a day on the lawn with fresh bread, cheese and sun to release all the emotions held up by the week of work. Sharing with others, talking about politics, religion and even family issues is done in parks, along rivers, and other community oriented places. This too, allows for the human nature of people to connect, release and restart the week with a new charged brain, that is not only less tired but also less stressed; unconsciously. Children too, feel the emotions released in communal exchanges, good and bad, loud and silent, allowing them to learn how to manage their future emotional distresses.
The work load might be just as stressing in both continents, but the way to get to and from work is a bit different, the scenery, the home structure, begging with breakfast at home, the food they take or send to schools and offices, and the even the kitchens are constructed differently. They are made to be used, to be refilled several times a week and to be producing smaller amounts of foods for a family of 3 or 4. It is completely visible and felt if you attend an appliance fair in Europe and one in the US. The european refrigerator, for example, is much smaller, it is designed for a different consumer, much to the joy of those watching them as for those using them. They are sleek, practical, quiet, and take up 20 to 30 percent less space than american appliances do. 
Beyond the food being served, eating is a joyful event. There is no staring at people eating the bread or sipping the wine. If people order dessert, the size of the dish is definitely for one, therefore there is no need to bring six spoons to one order. And no one leaves the table feeling stuffed and saying it. There is no such thing as guilt at the mediterranean table. There is joy, conversation, sometimes heavy conversation, but always communication. No ipads on children, iphones on adults, only people enjoying the moment with all their electronics in their bags where they belong.
And by the way, kitchen design is far ahead in new products that we would tend to believe so. I just found high quality flash freezers, steam ovens, vacuum packers and food defrosters and coolers, all the size of a medium to small sized microwave oven, placed in walls that take almost no space, all available to the european men and women that cook at home. And by the way eat out a lot too!
