Eat right! 5 smart Cinco de Mayo choices

 
Not sure what to nibble this today? Our eat-right guide shows ya how to enjoy a Cinco de Mayo feast in a healthy way. Pass the tacos, please! 

 

Tricky tortillas

When compared head-to-head, corn tortillas are almost always healthier than flour tortillas. They have fewer ingredients and calories, and tend to contain healthier fats. But not all flour tortillas are made equal! Offer to accompany Mom on her pre-feast grocery trip and comparison shop.

 

Pile on the veggies

Top your fave Mexican dish with a hearty helping of fresh salsa. Make it yourself to nix preservatives and icky chemicals that are sooo not necessary. Yum!

 

Grab the good stuff

Love a dose of creamy goodness but cringe when ya consider the calories in sour cream? Try topping tacos and nachos with guacamole instead. You’ll still get the indulgent vibe, but you’ll ditch the unhealthy fat that’s loaded into sour cream.

 

Go for grilled

We love fajitas—and burritos and tacos packed with freshly grilled goodness. While enchiladas and the like are oh-so scrumptious, they’re also weighed down by tons the gobs of cheese sauce that makes them tasty. Can’t resist? Consider splitting a serving with a friend or sibling so you can get a few bites of your fave without overindulging.

 

Pick and choose

When it comes to sides, Mexican restaurants typically offer up beans and dirty rice. Skip refried in favor of black beans, which are packed with protein, fiber, iron and vitamin B. Love the rice? Have a few bites and then move on. Loathe it? Ask if you can double up on beans.
