With all the bad reputation that Mexican Food has, people think that it is just tortilla chips and fried tacos, some might think that Mexican food is not healthy at all. Well, I have news for you, traditional everyday Mexican food is healthy food, just take a little look at the recipe section on this blog, and you will agree on that. And since it is a new year, and maybe some of you want to start fresh with a lighter fare of meals, I selected a few of my favorite healthier dishes to share with you. As you can see in this collection of recipes, you can have stews, soups, and other meals without making too much sacrifice and enjoy  Mexican food, from breakfast to dinner. I believe that everything is about moderation, eating the right amount of proteins, vegetables and carbs.  Add lost of vegetables to your dish, either steamed, sautéed or raw. Enjoy!
