Mexican food is amazing and really healthy! Many types of beans, including black and pinto, supply a healthy amount of fiber and protein. Tomatoes and onions are good sources of vitamin C. Avocado contains heart-healthy unsaturated fats, fiber, and potassium. The compound, capsaicin, found in spicy peppers, such as jalapenos, is known for lowering blood pressure and cholesterol, improving circulation, and relieving congestion.
Unfortunately, the americanization of the Mexican cuisine has left it fried and covered with cheese, but don’t fret because Mr. and Mrs. Vegan have made alternatives that put the health and deliciousness back in these amazing foods!
