It is almost time for Cinco De Mayo! It’s a super fun holiday, and you can enjoy it yet avoid feeling bloated and super heavy. That is certainly not celebratory!! In this post, I rounded up a few of my favorite Mexican-themed recipes for you to try, that will help you feel great as you celebrate and have fun!! Si to that :).
Mexican food is actually a great cuisine to cater to the Beauty Detox lifestyle! It’s full of avocades, beans and veggies, lending itself perfectly to Mexican favorites that include veggies, guacamole, a bean-free bean dip, salsa, and yes, even veggies tacos.
I think you will be pleasantly surprised at how easy it will be for you to celebrate with some really easy dishes that are not only crowd-pleasers, but super-filling and healthy!
Some staples for Mexican food are Guacamole, Salsa and Refried Beans! For something quick you can create these 3-5 sides and pair them with some gluten free flat bread (such as Sonoma brand teff wraps). I toss mine in the oven for a few minutes to get crispy, then I cut them up into little triangles to look like chips. You can also pair these dishes with a variety of veggie sticks for a colorful tray and loads of nutrients!
It’s time to revisit these delicious and super-easy recipes and start getting in the spirit for some good ole guilt-free splurging!
#1 Spicy Asparagus & Grilled Portobello Tacos
I see taco trucks all the time, I was inspired to come up with a delicious but healthier alternative. I get it- late night or post-long work day, fast, yummy…tacos are awesome! But I do believe- and proven by my new recipe here- that tacos can be all of these things, BUT we can instead treat them as little tortilla boats carrying us beauty ingredients with scrumptious flavor combinations. :) (Not inflammation and bloat and bad oil and the like!)
My new Spicy Asparagus & Grilled Portobello Tacos Recipe IS all of what you want from a taco and more. What’s the more? Gluten-free tortillas, cleansing asparagus and protein and mineral-rich Portobello shrooms! I think you’re going to love this new spin for an upcoming taco night :).
