Lo que debes saber del yoghurt

Por Kiwilimón - Agosto 2011
  El yoghurt es un alimento muy bueno para nuestra salud. Gran cantidad de estudios demuestran que es un remedio eficaz contra las dolencias intestinales. También beneficia la absorción de fósforo y calcio, tiene propiedades que facilitan la digestión, regenera la flora de los intestinos y por si fuera poco aumenta el apetito. El yoghurt no solamente se consume como se adquiere, ya que también es de mucha utilidad en recetas gastronómicas, tanto dulces como saladas. Pero hay que tener cuidado. Si lo calentamos por encima de los 40 grados centígrados perderá todas sus cualidades. Hoy en día el yoghurt es algo más que un simple alimento para nuestro desayuno, con él podremos elaborar deliciosos platos de comida y lograr un toque muy especial en sopas, salsas, tortas, panes. Su alto contenido en calcio lo hace de gran utilidad en la prevención y tratamiento de la osteoporosis, además de mejorar el sistema inmunitario. El aporte calórico del yoghurt no es excesivamente alto y si se toma descremado es recomendable en dietas calóricas. Su composición alcalina neutraliza la acción de los ácidos en el estómago. Recetas de cocina recomendadas con yoghurt: - Gelatina de Yogurt - Copas de Yogurt con Granola y Frutas - Kebabs de Pollo Marinadas en Yogurt - Gelatina de Yogurt con Coulis de Fresas

Read in EnglishSi bien tallar calabazas es una de las tradiciones más famosas de Halloween, tallar rábanos en la víspera de Navidad es una tradición muy popular en el estado de Oaxaca con más de un siglo de antigüedad. La noche de los rábanos se realiza cada 23 de diciembre y es la celebración navideña más anticipada de Oaxaca durante la época decembrina. Esta peculiar tradición surgió como una estrategia de venta, pues los comerciantes solían adornar sus puestos con curiosos rábanos tallados con los que buscaban llamar la atención de los marchantes para incrementar sus ventas. En la Nochebuena de 1897, el entonces presidente municipal, Francisco Vasconcelos, organizó la primera exposición de rábanos tallados después de admirar los puestos decorados con las llamativas figurillas. Con el tiempo, la noche de los rábanos se convirtió en un concurso anual en el que hortelanos y floricultores dan vida a obras de arte efímeras entre las que destacan nacimientos, escenas bíblicas y tradiciones típicas de la región. A pesar de que el tallado de rábanos es la categoría más popular, trabajos realizados con totomoxtle (hoja de maíz seca) y flor inmortal también participan en el concurso. Los rábanos utilizados durante el festival se cultivan con tres meses de anticipación y son para uso exclusivo del concurso de tallado. La mayoría de los ejemplares que se utilizan durante la noche de los rábanos llegan a medir alrededor de 50 centímetros y tienen un peso aproximado de tres kilogramos. Una vez que los rábanos están listos para ser cosechados, hombres, mujeres y niños se reúnen para cosechar hasta catorce toneladas de rábanos que adornan el Zócalo de Oaxaca cada 23 de diciembre. La tradición del tallado de rábanos ha prevalecido durante más de un siglo y continuará en los años venideros. Ahora, ya sabes, la próxima vez que |disfrutes de un tradicional pozole coronado con rodajas de rábano, recuerda que la celebración navideña más anticipada de Oaxaca es la noche de los rábanos.
