After having returned from a lovely trip to Mexico, I couldn’t help but wonder why I can’t eat the way I did while on vacation when I’m back home? It’s not like we overate, or ate fast food, but the foods we consumed just seemed so fresher and healthier. So why can’t we continue to eat Latin foods we love here? One of the reasons why Latin foods, especially Mexican food, is so popular in the U.S. is because it’s just overloaded with too much. Taco in the U.S. isn’t just a taco, or a burrito can’t be a simple burrito. Food in the U.S. is all about bigger and fattier portions.
We’ve decided to make healthier food choices this year, without cutting out on the pleasures of having a good and delicious Latin meal. Here’s how our family is changing up the way we eat in the new year.
