Recept: preisoep



pasta bv. mie, vermicelli of macaroni


Olie in de pan gieten. Even warm laten worden en dan de in kleine blokjes gesneden (rauwe) aardappel erin. Vuur even hoog zetten, maar na een minuut of vijf laag. In die paar minuten wel opletten dat het niet aanbrandt. Dan de in ringetjes gesneden en gewassen prei toevoegen, net als de knoflook en de in stukjes gesneden knolselderij. Dit alles vrij lang laten stoven, een minuut of 20, wel er bij blijven om te roeren.

Paprikapoeder en knoflook erbij. Even meebakken.

Dan heet water, met daarin opgelost de bouillon, toevoegen. Tomatenpuree en pasta erdoor. Aan de kook brengen en laten koken tot alles (aardappels en pasta) goed gaar is.

Globesity: Fat's New Frontier

categorieën: films, Over gewicht

Globesity: Fat's New Frontier reveals the outrageous eruption of a worldwide corpulence in countries where not so long ago famine was number one health issue. In China the usage of sugar and oil has led to rapid enlargement of waistlines; in Brazil global food companies have basically changed the usual daily intakes of food and sent the national scales spinning.

In India it's anticipated that 100 million people will have diabetes in the near future and in Mexico, the largest consumer of carbonated beverage in the world, where diabetes is already a headline killer and where the weight problem is so acute, special programs have been made available offering free fitness classes and bariatric surgery. If you thought obesity was just an issue in the first world economies, like the US, UK and Australia, this documentary will set you straight.

The fatness of the world is changing in ways that will amaze and possibly even disturb you. In the recent past, in many of the world's impoverished corners, hunger was the main health concern. Assessments put the number of underweight at 700 million, and overweight - mainly in affluent countries - at 100 million. How the tables have turned.

In truth, no country has succeeded to eliminate the hunger without shifting to corpulence, very quickly. Among poor and developing countries, there's not a single one, from sub-Saharan Africa to South Africa to the Middle East to Asia and Latin America, which has regulated this difficulty.

By 2010 the number of underweight people had increased only slightly but the number of very overweight people had blown up to 500 million. It's estimated that by 2030 more than one billion will be fat. We have dumped the concern of obesity into the developing economies just at a time when the numbers were starting to level off. This is a global problem and every country on the planet should be worried about it.
