Mexican food for dinner!

My sister loves Mexican food, and I do too!

Do you know Mexican food has an image of being unhealthy, but do you know you can make it as healthy as you want it to be?

What did we make?

- Corn on the cob. You just need sweet corn on the cob, and boil it for a few minutes until it is soft enough to eat.

- Tortillas. We used organic tortillas, which we filled up with good stuff. We added:

* sliced iceberg lettuce.

*Black beans (organic, from a can that we warmed up a bit)

*sliced peppers, cucumbers, celery, tomatoes.

*sliced avocado

* a bit of organic sour cream. (the more you use,  the “unhealthier” you make your dish!)

* A bit of sliced organic cheese. ( again, the more you use, the  more calories in your dish!)

- We also stir fried brown rice with black beans.

- And my sister added grilled organic chicken.

Simple and yummy!

    Yum! I love Mexican food,in California you can get great Mexican food.I like entomatadas with guacamole filling and black beans on the side;but with the whole grain corn tortilla is best,wheat tortillas are not acceptable!

    Hi Tajna and Lonneke!

    I love your comments and posts.

    I’m studying Naturopathic Nutrition here in the UK- what do you recommend for a pre-workout drink or food? Especially before a long early morning run?

    Much love, Emma
