La dieta de Gaby Espino y otros de sus trucos para rebajar

Gaby

Gaby Espino está disfrutando mucho su trabajo como conductora del reality de Telemundo Buscando mi ritmo. Ella lo dice y se le nota. Se ve que los años viviendo con un profesional de la música como Jencarlos Canela la tiene bien educada en el tema. Pero además está más guapa que nunca. Cuando la entrevisté estaba enferma con asma. Dijo que no había dormido y aún así se veía deslumbrante. Ya verás el video que le hice. Quizá por eso se le escaparon unos cuantos secretitos como lo que más odia de su dieta y una de sus recetas favoritas.

You'll love this low-calorie tabouleh salad (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

This wheat and parsley salad is simply wonderful. Not only because it is delicious, fresh, crisp and very easy to make, but also because it's packed with fiber. It is a typical recipe from the Middle East where it is known as Tabouleh. I see it more often at grocery stores, usually very close to hummus (chickpea spread). If you do not have the bulgur handy, you can substitute it with couscous or with a cup of cooked quinoa. You can also add a sprig of chopped mint and chives can be exchanged for purple onion. I hope you like my recipe.

A step-by-step guide to making the BEST tostones in the world (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

I don't know anyone who doesn't like tostones, what the Colombians call patacón pisa'o. Anyone with Latin blood running through his or her veins knows what I mean. In Venezuela (where I come from) we eat tostones alone, with garlic, with salsa rosada (as pictured), with coleslaw, and some people serve them with stew meat or chicken and avocado on top. Tostones or patacones are the perfect side dish when on the beach you have fried fish or simply enjoy a fish hervido. I'm not a fried food person, but when it comes to fried plantains, it's worth the sacrifice. Then, we will go back to dieting.

The secret to super fluffy scrambled eggs (EXCLUSIVE VIDEO)

Today's video is a very simple recipe that I make at least once a week. A couple of days ago I made it because my 10-year-old son was taking his writing FCAT and the night before told me: "Mom, my morning breakfast should be high protein. Can you please make scrambled eggs that are pure protein?" I couldn't help but laugh at the occurrences of this creature that has become a walking encyclopedia and speaks as if lecturing at an Ivy League college. Truth to be told: this recipe is prepared with butter, eggs and a splash of milk. The milk is the "magic" ingredient (a trick my mom passed to me), ensuring the eggs are as moist as the one served at five-star hotels.

Today's recipe is not only an easy one, but the most delicious dip you will ever have. It's made with fried eggplant and stewed with onions and chopped tomatoes. The resulting stew can be served as a tapa to be eaten with pita bread (this is a recipe from the Middle East), with tortilla chips or cassava, to accompany a meat dish with rice, chicken or fish, and also to eat with pasta. Also, you can serve this dish warm or cold. I love keeping it in the refrigerator and have it available any time. I hope you like my recipe, which was passed to me by my Venezuelan Syrian friend Faviola.
