145 classic Mexican recipes made healthy and low-cal—still full of flavor and oh-so-simple to prepare
With so many popular fast-casual chains serving up foot-long burritos, oozing quesadillas, and “taco shells” made of snack chips that shall remain nameless, it’s all too easy to equate Mexican cooking with unhealthy eating.
Enter Healthy Easy Mexican. Registered dietitian Velda de la Garza shifts the spotlight back to the Mexican fare she grew up with, which is filled with colorful fruits and veggies and lends itself to low-cal, healthy cooking. Her 160 recipes, all with short ingredient lists and practical prep times, include Stuffed Jalapeños, Chalupas, Chicken Adobo, Chile Cheese Tortillas, and Mango Flan!
First published as Healthy Mexican Cooking (25,000 in print), this fully revised edition adds vibrant color photos throughout. Plus, de la Garza includes substitutions, nutrient analyses, and diabetic exchanges to help readers achieve their health goals. As the saying goes, Que tus alimentos seyan tus medicinas: “Let your food be your medicine.”
