What is Cinco de Mayo?

That’s why this Friday many people will be having parties or going to bars and restaurants which will be serving Mexican food and cocktails.
Is Mexican food keto?
Mexican food is very flavorful and some options are very healthy and perfect for your low carb diet. Any meat centric dishes like fajitas and carne asada are low in carbs by themselves.
Food to stay away from on a keto diet are tortilla chips, tortillas, rice and beans. All of these are high in carbs. And while that might seem hard to pass up, if you are at home you make or buy keto tortillas and chips.
And while you can’t eat white rice you can eat cauliflower rice and when topped with the deliciously flavored meats and condiments like guacamole, sour cream and most salsas and it will taste delicious.
You can also eat any of the fajitas and other meats on a salad. Or make taco meat and have a taco salad.
So you can see there are a lot of options for eating keto in a Mexican restaurant or eating at home for Cinco de Mayo. (Learn more)
