4 Healthy Cinco de Mayo Recipes | #PSPfit

April 30 2015 | CeCe Olisa

What are you doing for Cinco de Mayo? As a California girl, any excuse to eat Mexican food is alright with me.

Part of my healthy curves journey is figuring out how to be social and celebrate food/drink fueled holidays without going overboard. My friends and I usually go out for Cinco de Mayo. I’m in the middle of #PSPfit Boot Camp, so I’m laser focused on making good choices. Cinco de Mayo is a great holiday for that! When I’m eating out at Mexican Restaurants, I stick to a clean diet with proteins (chicken, shrimp), fresh salsa (or pico de gallo, a chunkier version of salsa), black beans, guacamole and brown rice, when available.

If you plan on making some cinco de mayo themed meals at home, here are four healthy Mexican food recipes to help!

    I am curious to find out what blog platform you happen to be using? I’m experiencing some small security issues with my latest site and I’d like to find something more secure. Do you have any solutions?
