Savor the flavors of Mexico with these slimmed-down versions of traditional favorites
Cinco de Mayo (a bigger holiday in the United States than it is in Mexico) is the perfect excuse for a pre-summer bash. But the typical Cinco de Mayo menu, replete with fried tortillas, fatty sauces, and cheese-heavy dishes, is the healthy eater’s worst nightmare—and the timing is especially tragic, falling as it does so close to swimsuit season. This year, lighten up your Cinco de Mayo celebration, with a spa-inspired menu that swaps vegetables for rice and chips, ups the fiber, and slashes fat and calories. That’s really something to celebrate!
