National Nutrition Month: Tip #19

When eating out at a Mexican restaurant, order corn tortillas rather than flour tortillas. Even if they have whole wheat flour tortillas, traditionally they are made with lard while corn tortillas don’t use any fat. This makes corn tortillas MUCH lower in calories. They are also smaller which will help too.

Now just make sure those corn tortillas aren’t cut in triangles and fried!
