A study conducted by scientists at UCLA revealed Latinos age slower than other ethnicities. UCLA’s human genetics professor, Steve Horvath, states, “Latinos live longer than Caucasians, despite experiencing higher rates of diabetes and other diseases. Scientists refer to this as the ‘Hispanic paradox’… Our study helps explain this by demonstrating that Latinos age more slowly at the molecular level.”
There you have it. We will not argue with science. We drank from the fountain of youth and we ain’t telling you the secret. 😉

Peru isn’t the only country holding guinea pig festivals… make room for ECUADOR. Ecuador holds guinea pig beauty contests annually where they dress and cook these little rodents to perfection. The guinea pig meat is said to be a delicacy in Ecuador that they call “Cuy” and it’s said to be really tasty. Have you tried cuy before?
Latinos LOVE Aji Verde sauce. Now, I know there’s a Cuban and Mexican version. I learned how to make the Peruvian kind and let me tell you, it is sooooo GOOD! It is so deliciously finger licking good that you need to look up the recipe, right now, and make it! It’s VERY SPICY. I’m not crazy about spicy foods, but this I can have every day. Dip your fries, tacos, or cover your chicken in this sauce and you will not regret it. The main ingredient is the jalapeño. You are supposed to take the seeds out, but I don’t because I like living on the edge! Oh yeah, I’m daring. Just make sure to have a jug of water on the side and enjoy. 😉
