Think Mexican food and you might recall the "food baby" you had the last time you opted for a dish that touted its south of the border roots. But traditional fare is much healthier than the fried enchiladas and overstuffed burritos that are synonymous with Mexican food in the U.S. “Traditional Mexican cuisine can be very healthy,” says Laura Diaz-Brown, a certified nutritionist best known as celebrity chef LaLa. “It’s high in legumes, bursting with vegetables and uses meat sparingly. And the food is cooked with olive oil or charbroiled, baked and steamed—not fried and processed.” Diaz-Brown suggests skipping heavy sauces and creams when making your favorite Mexican fare at home and, instead, focusing on bold flavors in place of fats—think chiles, limes, herbs and spices.
