La dieta paleolítica

Por Kiwilimón - Enero 2014
Según la filosofía de esta forma de nutrición el hombre ha evolucionado hacia una forma dañina de comer en los último años por lo que lo correcto es regresar a las antiguas andanzas y tratar de nutrirnos con lo mismo que hacía nuestros antepasados.

Según diversas investigaciones nutricionales la razón para algunas de las enfermedades que más atacan hoy en día a los humanos como la diabetes, el cáncer y el deterioro neurológico se deben a la forma en la que nos alimentamos con grasas transgénicas, saturadas y azúcares artificiales. El primer punto importante de esta dieta es que debemos alimentarnos de grasas mono saturadas pues las dietas ricas en estas y grasas Omega 3 reducen drásticamente los casos de obesidad, cáncer, diabetes, enfermedades del corazón y el deterioro cognitivo. Para hacer esto debemos asegurarnos que todas las carnes que consumimos provengan de animales de campo criados orgánicamente y no de ranchos donde se les alimente con comida sintética pues esto no sólo reduce el beneficio de su carne sino que añade químicos peligrosos. El otro punto es aumentar nuestro consumo de frutas y verduras orgánicas pues son estas las que por siglos y siglos mantuvieron alimentada a nuestra especie. Así como con la proteína debemos cuidar que estos vegetales y frutas provengan del origen más natural posible pues de lo contrario pierden sus nutrientes y son potencialmente dañinas. Si comprendemos el concepto en general se nos pide comer como nuestros antepasados, aquellos que conocían ni la industria ni el crecimiento con hormonas, aquellos que vivieron en la era Paleolítica. En aquel punto la raza humana acostumbró su organismo a ciertos alimentos naturales que hasta la fecha nos hacen bien y nunca se acostumbró a comer comida chatarra ni productos sintéticos y es por esto que nos pueden hacer mucho daño. Algunos puntos a seguir si deseas llevar esta dieta son los siguientes: - Deja el azúcar, especialmente la que le añades al café o en general los refrescos. Hay suficiente glucosa en las frutas que consumes. - Come carne orgánica de todo tipo: res, pollo, cerdo, mientras sea natural no hay problema. -  Consume diferentes verduras y hortalizas pues obtendrás todos los carbohidratos que necesitas de estos ingredientes. - Limita tu consumo de cereales con gluten como la pasta y el pan. - Usa grasas animales como la mantequilla en vez de las vegetales como el de girasol. El resultado de esta dieta es un bienestar general. Notarás la mejora tus funciones sanguíneas por lo que te sentirás con más energía, la pérdida de peso será evidente y la reducción del dolor en caso de enfermedades crónicas también debe desaparecer poco a poco. A final de cuentas esta dieta no te limita en cantidades y ni siquiera en productos que nos gustan, sólo pide que compruebes bien el origen de los alimentos que tu y tu familia consumen.

Leer en españolThree kings cake is a delicious pan dulce eaten in Mexico and other countries on January 6th in line with the celebrations for Día de Reyes, or the Epiphany. In Mexico, rosca de reyes is often paired with beverages like hot chocolate, atole, café de olla, or champurrado.At kiwilimón, we share with you the story of this traditional bread for, according to experts, there are similar varieties in countries like the United States, France, Switzerland, Spain, and Belgium.What Is the Meaning of the Three Kings Cake?The three kings cake is consumed on January 6th after Melchior, Caspar, and Balthazar bring gifts to children. This type of bread is often paired with hot drinks. The most exciting part of this tradition is that, once they slice the rosca de reyes, people may find a plastic figurine representing Baby Jesus.This fluffy bread tastes like vanilla or orange and is covered with butter crusts, fruit paste, figs, and maraschino cherries. However, nowadays there is a wide variety of three kings cake filled with cream cheese, chocolate, hazelnut chocolate cream, jam, and more.Regarding its meaning, this bread has an oval or round shape because “it means that the love of God has no end”, that is, it has no beginning and no end, according to information published by Mexico’s Agrifood and Fisheries Information Service.Inside the rosca de reyes, we can find several Baby Jesus plastic figurines, however, this represents one of the bloodiest episodes in the Bible: the massacre of children upon order of King Herod. Little children figurines are hidden in the bread as though they were being protected. According to tradition, once one or several people find a plastic figurine, they are obliged to prepare or buy tamales for Candlemas, which is celebrated on February 2nd. The Origins of the Three Kings CakeThis traditional bread is a classic and is one of the favorite celebrations among people of all ages, however, this tradition is not from Mexico. Rosca de reyes began being prepared in several European countries during the Middle Ages, but it arrived in Mexico after the Spanish colonization. More than 100 years later, there are all sorts of roscas de reyes.Keep reading to learn about two of the main precedents of the Mexican Three Kings Cake: France’s galette des rois and Spain's roscón de reyes.Galette des RoisThis delicious three kings cake was created in France during the 16th century. It is available since mid-December, but it is traditionally eaten on January 6th for the Epiphany or even during the whole month.Traditional galette des rois is prepared with puff pastry and is filled with frangipane, a sweet filling made with pastry cream and almond cream. The funniest part of this celebration is that the person who finds the porcelain figure hidden inside the galette des rois will wear a cardboard crown and will be named king or queen for a day. Roscón de ReyesThis Spanish version of the three kings cake is related to the Roman Saturnalia, a series of celebrations in honor of god Saturn. Back then, people prepared a special sweet bread. Later on, the Spanish, just like the French, began hiding a fava bean inside the roscón; the kid who finds it becomes king for one day.Contrary to the galette des rois, Spanish roscón de reyes is pretty similar to the rosca de reyes eaten in Mexico. Roscón de reyes is round and is garnished with candied fruits and is sometimes filled with cream or other sweet fillings.Translated by Miranda Perea
Es tradición que cada 5 o 6 de enero nos reunamos para compartir una Rosca de Reyes y que a quien le toque “el muñequito”, invite los tamales el 2 de febrero (Día de la Candelaria). Aunque hemos adoptado esta costumbre como propia, el origen de la Rosca de Reyes se remonta a la Edad Media, en países europeos como Francia y España.La forma circular de la rosca representa el “amor eterno de Dios que no tiene principio ni fin” en la religión católica. Este pan también hace referencia a la “epifanía”, el encuentro de los tres Reyes Magos con el Niños Jesús, y el “muñeco” escondido simboliza al mesías.Por la calidad de sus ingredientes y sabor, te recomendamos 4 panaderías para comprar la Rosca de reyes de este año:Pastelería Suiza Esta panadería lleva más de 70 años preparándolas y es de las mejores opciones para pedir tu rosca de reyes, además de que puedes pedir distintas creaciones que te aseguramos te encantarán.

Leer en españolOne stroke, one grape, and one wish is a New Year tradition that has become one of the most popular good luck rituals due to all the things it represents. Even considered magical by some, this ritual is performed at midnight when the number 12 is repeated: 12 strokes, 12 o’clock, 12 months, 12 grapes, 12 wishes. Just like some people believe that taking empty suitcases around the block will ensure a lot of traveling during the new year, others are convinced that eating grapes at the stroke of midnight will guarantee a year with goals and wishful thinking for the new period that begins. Moreover, it adds a bit of adrenaline and fun to the night to find out who can follow the pace of the strokes while eating the 12 grapes.However, this tradition, which is highly popular in Latin America, is actually from Spain. According to the book Spain by journalist Jeff Koehler, the origin of this good luck ritual has two possible theories: One located in the 19th century and the other in the early 20th century.The first hypothesis asserts that the Spanish bourgeois wanted to do as their French counterparts, whose New Year’s Eve celebration involved eating grapes and drinking sparkling wine.The tradition then passed on to people in Madrid, who went to the Puerta del Sol to listen to the strokes at midnight and to eat grapes, like the wealthy, but with irony and mockery.The second hypothesis mentions that farmers in Aledo, Alicante had a surplus of harvested white grapes and decided to sell them at a low price.Nowadays, these grapes are so famous that they are known as “good luck grapes” and they are even sold in Aledo in 12-piece special packages to welcome the New Year. Kick-starting the year with good wishes is always a great way to get inspired and manifest prosperity for the new cycle that begins. Whether you eat grapes or not, New Year’s Eve is always a day full of optimism that we want to share with you with these 12 tips to welcome the new year.Translated by Miranda Perea
