” Life without Mexican food is like no life whatsoever.” – Unknown 

I couldn’t concur more! Recognized for their array of picante ( or muy caliente!) dishes as well as the usage of tomatoes, beans, various rices, warm peppers, and also flavors, Mexican food, regardless of heritage, is one the most beloved as well as best foods on the market. Ask the ordinary North American if they such as Mexican, and they’ll probably tell you they had it recently. Small amounts is always vital to optimum wellness. Believe me, if I could possibly have it daily, I would. As well as I have, once upon time (also known as the time when I consumed simply cheese in “lacto ovo vegetarian” diet regimen!)

One of my favourite Mexican hobby snacks to have is a good dish of tortilla chips and spicy salsa! Mmmmm.

The problem? It can be unhealthy especially the Westernized Mexican kind! If you go to any kind of Mexican dining establishment (also “Chipotle!”) or purchase commercial items like Ol El Paso, you are probably to consume genetically modified syntheticed products. Yuck! Every little thing is made or fried with very improved canola, corn or grease and a huge percent of it has been likely acquired from genetically crafted crops. Exactly how it also remotely feasible to head to a Mexican dining establishment and also NOT have those luring, tasty chips, tortillas as well as salsas as appetizers ?! It will not be a delightful time if you prevent it, that’s for sure!

Most individuals have probably been upset regarding the negative health results that GMO products, such as corn, or a minimum of have read about these 3 letters. Whether you protest it, uncommitted regarding it or like me, advising business to identify GMO, your best option for the majority of food is to attempt and also acquire organic, neighborhood products that have the least quantity of ingredients, chemicals and sugars – or in it’s most natural kind (like veggies/fruits).

While I’m certain there are restaurants as well as companies that offer Mexican items with healthy active ingredients, the ideal and most satisfying method is by making your very own! You could stay clear of the added common salt sodium, pesky SUGARS, gluten, high fructose corn syrups, synthetic flavors as well as shades and also other “nasties” with just a couple of straightforward all-natural active ingredients. If the concept of making salsa as well as chips intimidates you, be not terrified! After 15 mins, I created one of the most scrumptious and satisfying salsa ever before! Allow’s face it peeps, buying organic, regional, sugar free salsa from your local wellness shop could be pricey particularly if it’s a staple component of your fridge.

The baked tortilla chips is unbelievably simple making as well. This requires you to buy the bestest oil totally free organic corn tortillas worldwide. Food For Life’s Sprouted Corn Tortillas is the one I frequently make use of. You could obtain them at your local health and wellness store or Loblaws for about $3.99 and it’s the perfect, nourishing base for every one of your Mexican dishes.
