I’m on CBS Washington, D.C. with healthy Cinco de Mayo recipes and tips!
Instead of tortilla chips, serve savory, light and crispy Tajin pork rinds. Tajin is the best-selling chili lime seasoning that adds a tangy, mildly spicy flavor. These are high in protein and low in carbs.
For an entree, serve a taco salad! I use a mix of the kale, green leaf lettuce and cilantro, then add red onion,, corn, and cheese. Queso Fresco adds a special spark to this dish, it’s a soft, fresh cheese with a crumbly, creamy texture. For protein, I used using lamb which is flavor-forward, nutrient-rich source of protein that’s easy to prepare and super versatile. One 3-ounce serving fuels nearly half of your daily protein needs and provides essential nutrients including iron, zinc and vitamin B12.
Finally we have apple citrus sangria! Start with 4 sliced apples, then I use 3 packets each of the True Lemon and True Lime Crystallized Wedge Replacements which you can use wherever you use a lemon or lime wedge. Each packet equals one citrus wedge, has 0 calories or sugar and is made from real citrus and simple, clean, non-gmo ingredients. Muddle that together, then add ½ cup apple cider, 1 cup sparkling water and 1 bottle of red wine or red grape juice.
