Resumen


En medio de la transición nutricional global, en este artículo se examinan prácticas locales de madres de familia en la sierra norte del Ecuador, haciendo uso de métodos de investigación etnográfica. Los resultados de este estudio demuestran que las comunidades estudiadas continúan preparando alimentos enteros en su gran mayoría; no obstante, al mismo tiempo están presentes alimentos procesados que son deseados y usados en algunos hogares de la zona. Finalmente se discute sobre dos discursos que motivan las selecciones alimenticias en esta región: la nostalgia y el cosmopolitanismo.
