Next time Mexican food is calling your name, stop by Cantina Laredo for a Healthy Dining-recommended menu choice like these:
Ensalada de Camaron con Miel
This menu choice impressively combines flavors and textures for a salad that is anything but the usual greens. Grilled shrimp, jicama, mangos, roasted walnuts and goat cheese with tropical honey vinaigrette meld together into a restaurant dish that is hard not to crave.
A classic Latin choice, this brightly flavored choice is perfect for a lower calorie starter or a lighter meal. Shrimp, scallops and fish are marinated in lime juice to “cook” and are then served with three red tostada flag chips. Skip the chips (not included in analysis) for choice that’s high in muscle-building lean protein without those added calories, fat and carbs.
Two Taqueria Beef Fajita Tacos
If you prefer the classics, you can’t go wrong with these tacos. Two beef fajita tacos are topped with queso fresco, avocado and sour cream and served with rice and black beans to round out your meal and up your fiber for the day.
