About

I love the flavors in Mexican dishes! Don’t you? Classic Mexican night dinners taste amazing, but are usually loaded with grains, gluten, dairy and fried items which leave us overly full, bloated and subject to major weight gain (been there, done that, bleh).

But don’t give up on your favorite Mexican flavors – that would be all too sad!

Instead by making a few modifications we can still enjoy all the classics like Tacos, Enchiladas and even Taco Supreme Pizza. Yum, much happier now
