To make the mate, the calabash gourd is filled with the dried leaves of the yerba and then filled with hot water from a thermos. In the workplace, a thermos or kettle is shared among the employees. Using the bombilla straw, mate is slowly sipped and enjoyed. You can see how it looks in the pictures below. I will buy a Mate set this weekend and taste it next week. Mate - Infusion Tea from Uruguay.

We are currently visiting Uruguay and will be sharing some of the popular recipes and dishes from this country. Uruguayan cuisine is traditionally based on its European roots, in particular, Mediterranean food from Italy, Spain, Portugal and France, but also from countries such as Germany and Britain, along with African and indigenous mixtures. The first dish we are featuring is a local sandwich-like dish called the Chivito. As you can see in the picture, the Chivito consists primarily of a thin slice of filet mignon churrasco beef , with mayonnaise, black or green olives, mozzarella, tomatoes and commonly also bacon, fried or hardboiled eggs and ham.

It is served in a bun, often with a side of French fries. Other ingredients might be added into the sandwich such as red beets, peas, grilled or pan-fried red peppers and slices of cucumber. The Chivito I had was made of chicken and had lettuce and peppers as well.

The chicken and bacon seemed to be grilled with the egg making the flavors quite interesting. The word Chivito literally means "little goat" or "baby goat". It is claimed the name arose at a restaurant in Uruguay, when a patron who was from the northern part of Argentina Cordoba ordered baby goat meat "chivito" like one that she had ordered in Argentina.

She was looking for a special taste, something similar to what she had experienced in her region. But since the restaurant owner Mr. Cabrera did not have this specialty, he served his toasted bread with ham, sliced filet mignon and seasoned it with different ingredients. If you are like me from India, then you may fine the Chivito just about OK as its not very spicy or contain any spices.

There are various studies of the impact of these diets on inflammation. They are mostly small and the results are mixed. In the most recent study, published in Complementary Therapies in Medicine in , participants followed a vegan diet for three weeks which significantly reduced C-reactive protein, a key marker for acute and chronic inflammation.

In two small studies published in the Journal of the American Dietetic Association in , researchers observed 79 rheumatoid arthritis patients who did a vegetable fast for seven to 10 days, followed by a vegan diet or lacto-vegetarian diet includes dairy and egg. In the smaller study 26 participants , the patients followed a lacto-vegetarian diet for nine weeks.
