Food Around the World Part #8; Mexican:

The Americans version of Mexican food: fried chips, fried sugar churros, fatty cheese enchiladas, cheese quesadillas, and lard baked beans. Terrible for your health and your pant size!!! Well true authentic Mexican food is comprised of freshly cooked beans, soups, and tomato based sauces. Real Mexican food actually does the reverse of the American creation; it actually lowers women’s risk of breast cancer!! The main ingredients of this type of cuisine actually slow digestion (beans and corn) and also may protect the body from type 2 diabetes.

So next time you hit up your favorite Mexican restaurant skip on all the rich queso dip and cheese laden dishes!! Instead go for ceviche, grilled vegetable salad or tomato based soup. And keep the fresh salsa as the main topping!
