I love love love Mexican food but what is the right thing to eat? I recently posted a blog about Chipolte and the unhealthy burritos they make, but is all Mexican food bad?
First, I walk into a mexican restaurant and sit down. Immediately, you get FREE chips and salsa. Who doesn’t like free food? But you have to be careful when eating these because they are high in fat/calories/ and sodium.. and fried.
So when you actually order your meal, here are a few suggestions for ordering.
1. Rice, beans, and salsa make for good selections
2. Meat is not a bad thing, but be careful the portion isn’t too large
3. Try to stay away from fried options, and stick to grilled vegetables and low fat tortillas
Here is a chart for further suggestions…
