My friend Karen, from Living Low Carb One Day at a Time, asked if I would write a guest post for her readers, while she is on a blog holiday…enjoying the fun and sun on the 2013 Low Carb Cruise. Of course I said yes. And since my post was scheduled to be published just days before Cinco de Mayo, it seemed only fitting to share some of my own Mexican heritage with a recipe for healthy Mexican Hot Chocolates. Head over to Karen’s blog to check these out…Mexican Hot Chocolates with coffee, cinnamon and cayenne pepper. Ai yai yai! (that’s an exclamation of excitement in Spanish)
Other Healthy (low-carb) Mexican Favorites
While Cinco de Mayo is an “optional” holiday in Mexico, in the United States it is a day to have a fiesta and celebrate Mexican culture and heritage, particularly in communities with large Hispanic populations. Whether you just simply want to celebrate with a healthy Margarita or you want to make a complete Mexican dinner, I’ve collected my favorite Mexican-American healthy recipes just for you! By clicking on the picture, you will be taken to the recipe which is just waiting for you to try.
