What is Cinco De Mayo?
Celebrated on the 5th May, Cinco De Mayo celebrates the Mexican military victory over France at the Battle of Puebla which took place in 1862.
It is a day of celebration of Mexican culture and heritage but is celebrated more in the USA where it is a national holiday. The largest Cinco de Mayo celebration is in Los Angeles, with street parades and parties throughout. If anyone wants me next May, you know where I will travel!
Keto Mexican Food
Many Mexican dishes can be high in carbs due to the beans, corn tortillas and some high carbohydrate vegetables BUT it is a cuisine that can easily be adapted to a low carb diet.
Avocados. Any cuisine that has avocados as a major food source is a keto delight! Adapting Mexican food recipes to low carb is easy enough with the substitution of low carb tortillas and tacos. Throw in a few dips, low carb spicy chicken, beef, pork and seafood, you have yourself a keto feast!
