Throw a party for all of your favorite people this Cinco De Mayo! We love any excuse to make healthy guacamole, frozen margaritas, healthy tacos, and vegan queso. Make any of these healthy Cinco De Mayo recipes for your next fiesta!
Let’s Have a Fiesta!
If there is any genre of food that we can’t get enough of, it’s Mexican food! It’s no secret, really. You guys seem to agree with us. Fit Foodie’s Taco Soup and Frozen Margarita Recipes are always a hit with our Fit Foodie Finds Community. No matter what time of year it is, always count on a good taco recipe or a bowl of guacamole to be made at least once a week in our kitchen!
If you have followed FFF for a while now you’ve heard us talk about San Miguel de Allende. Cole’s parents live in San Miguel de Allende and we try to make it down there once a year to visit (we are so freaking blessed). One thing Cole’s parents always talk about how San Miguel goes big for every holiday. Though they may be loud and keep the city up at night, the amount of joy that people have around holidays like Cinco de Mayo is palpable.
Cinco de Mayo Pantry Staples
Cinco de Mayo is right around the corner and we wanted to make sure you had enough time to plan out a delicious menu! If you’re not into big Cinco de Mayo bashes, just make a pan of nachos and a bowl of guacamole!
