So many people use Cinco De Mayo as an excuse to get really drunk and eat lots of mexican food. Let be real, who doesn’t love margaritas with a side of bottomless chips and salsa!?
Mexican food can be really unhealthy. Typically, it is loaded with salt, cheese, white carbs, and is often fried. Although delicious, it’s probably not the best choice to make when you are watching your waist line.
Well, I am here to tell you that you can still celebrate Cinco De Mayo while making smart choices!!!
Chipotle Salad Bowl
1) Sliced Peppers and Onions–> (Spices: dash of Cumin, Chilli powder, garlic powder)
Spray a pan with cooking spray, add a clove of garlic, and spices. Cook until soft.
2) Pico de Gallo
Chopped Tomato, onion, 1 garlic clove, cilantro, 1/2 of a limes juice (Spices–> 1/2 tsp Cumin, dash garlic powder, dash salt and pepper)
Combine all ingredients!
3) Mahi Mahi
4oz filet of mahi mahi (or other white fish) Spices–> Garlic powder, cumin, chilli powder, pepper, dash of salt
Spray pan with cooking spray. Put entire filet in the pan. Once it starts to cook through, take the spatula and begin breaking apart the fish into “shreds”. Add spices. Make sure it is cooked through!
Add sides!!!: black beans (I use 1/4 cup), 1/4 avocado, Sliced mango, extra cilantro, salsa, hot sauce, 1/4 cup cooked quinoa and some greek yogurt (1 TBS)
This is seriously one of my favorite dinners ever. It is super satisfying, full of flavor, and just YUMMY (I like to mix everything together to make a deliciously sloppy mess!!)
