Eating Healthy Mexican Food
05/05/2017
 

Mexican food is a favorite with many people, but a lot of Mexican food is fried with lard and topped with cheese, so it’s loaded with saturated fat. It can be high in sodium too. But when you know what to choose, Mexican food can be fresh, tasty and more healthful.
Here are a few tips when eating out:
*Tell your server not to bring fried tortilla chips to the table.
*Ask for low-fat sour cream or user salsa to add flavor.
*Veracruz or other tomato-based sauces are better than cream or cheese sauces.
*If you order a taco salad, don=t eat the fried shell.
