These days, looking for a pair of scissors at home and ended up finding it in the kitchen drawer in the middle of a lot of cookbooks from my mom, then I was thinking ... Cookbook, that old thing right !? :(

Had a notebook with several handwritten recipes, the layout was so cool, it was like this: ingredients, cooking method, amount.

Then I wondered, why not a digital cookbook? Where I can share with family and friends?

I think there is a person in the world who does not like ice cream, exaggerated right? rs ... ;)

The truth is that ice cream is very good at any time of day, and even more so in these days of summer heat is 24 hours, ice cream is a food that refreshes, quick and easy to eat, and the price is usually pretty honest .

But ... not everything is perfect, the problem of ice cream is that it is a well-caloric food, and if you want to keep in shape can not overdo it and make ice cream all day.

And so I'll talk about Diletto a century-old brand that brings to Brazil the Gourmet Ice Cream, with very low calorie and incomparable flavor ... I've tried the flavors of Chocolate, Yogurt with Lemon, Coconut and Pistachio, and I was a fan of the brand.

Whenever I see the bear (logo trademark) in any bakery, restaurant end up buying an ice cream.

The Diletto offers 12 flavors to the public, all made with selected products from various parts of the world, resulting in exceptional gourmet gelatos and sorbets unprecedented in Brazil. Currently, the company has over 600 outlets in 11 Brazilian states and the Federal District.

#ficaadica, and who want to know more about the company and sorbets visit and also has the official twitter gelatodiletto

This Christmas I was curious to know what a Chester? Modified in the laboratory is a chicken? A chicken that takes anabolic? Obeso A Chicken?

Researched and found these infos below here:

"Both the Fiesta as the Chester ® are birds, very similar to chicken originated from crosses of special lines in order to get a product that has higher protein and lower fat, besides concentrating 70% of their meat on the breast and thighs, on average common chicken has 45% in these parts. The breeding enables breeders from matrices to obtain a product with desired characteristics, that is what these birds are rich in fine meats and ideal for the profile of Brazilian consumers weight.

Let's compare some data on the Chester ®, Fiesta and a common chicken:

Nutritional information
(Approximate values ​​for 100g of product)
Common chicken Chester Fiesta
Calorie (kcal) 200 166 170
Carbohydrates (g) 0 1 0
Protein (g) 17 17 16
Total fat (g) 15 11 12

Generally the nutritional values ​​of the common chicken is greater, is more fat provides more calories while Chester ® and Fiesta are fewer calories and less fat, and although all three show very similar levels of protein. The difference between them lies in the fact that in two special chickens, they are not dispersed as in common, but concentrated in the chest and thigh, and the taste of the customer!

And the customer is demanding. Knowing that Sadia offers besides the whole Fiesta, Fiesta breast stuffed with sausage and tender Fiesta, however Perdigao created a line of over 20 products derived from Chester: sausages, pizzas, lasagna, meatballs, and variations of parts, like smoked or cooked breast.

It is no coincidence that the companies are betting the production of a wide range of products made from chicken, especially the sayings of convenience, because this is one of the reasons that lead to the second type of the most consumed meat in the world, behind only swine. Other aspects that favor good performance are its relatively low price.

Chicken production has accompanied this increase in consumption, to give an idea, in the 30s, the average time to slaughter a chicken was 105 days and its average weight 1.50 kg. In 70 years, spent 56 days and 1.70 kg and in 90 years, 45 days and 2.25kg. The increased production and consumption of chicken was responsible for the improvements in health, nutrition and developments in genetic techniques, and the Chester ® and the Fiesta examples. "

Chocolate is a source of tryptophan, theobromine (which has stimulant effect) and magnesium (which improves mood), and aid in relaxation. Several studies show that magnesium helps relieve the symptoms of stress and mood, especially in women in the pre-menstrual tension. The ideal is not to consume more than 30 mg a day and prefer the versions with 70% cocoa

Filled with vitamin B6, magnesium and tryptophan, banana provides power and, thanks to carbohydrates, the potassium, magnesium and biotin, food helps reduce anxiety and mood increase because it stimulates the body to produce serotonin. The pyridoxine (vitamin B6), also present in fruit, operates in the metabolic reactions of amino acids and proteins such as serotonin helping to prevent depression, anxiety and irritation

The coffee alleviates symptoms of depression by the action of caffeine in the limbic system, but high doses can negatively affect mood, in addition to increasing the pressure and adrenaline. The recommended is that you consume on average three cups a day (300mg of caffeine)

It's been a few years that creatine was forbidden to be sold here in Brazil, and today I got the news that ANVISA (National Health Surveillance Agency) approved the use of creatine for athletes.

The National Health Surveillance Agency (ANVISA) published on Tuesday (27) new rules for food of athletes who, among other measures, releases the marketing of creatine supplements and caffeine in the country. Until the issue of the new ordinance, which will be published until next Monday (3), these substances were improperly marketed to high-income activities.


I am an advocate of creatine, I used this supplement for years and had great positive results and some negative.


  • Increases in lean mass, strength, disposition, definition.


  • Kidney stone

Of course, that positive results were not only effects of creatine, there is that lot of factors that need to follow to achieve the perfect body.

But anyway, I was happy with the release of the marketing of creatine, this year it will again make use of this supplement associated protein, I promise to publish my results here before and after, and get ready, because if I have the same results I had in the past and they will be significant and will motivate many people to ingest this supplement.

But here I am telling my personal experience, every body reacts in a way, always advise looking for a doctor / nutritionist to have the correct guidelines.
