Low Carb Mexican

Mexican cuisine is very popular worldwide and most dishes readily lend themselves to modifications that fit low carb or slow carb lifestyles.

Although it is challenging to modify tamales or tortillas to low carb versions, most Mexican dishes can be readily modified without loss of flavor and authenticity.  Much of the focus of Mexican meals centers around meat, seafood, vegetables and wonderful spice blends.  Avoiding tortillas and rice doesn’t need to diminish the experience of Mexican food.

Mexican dishes are particularly conducive to the slow carb diet authored by Tim Ferriss, as beans are a mainstay on slow carb.

I lost my 30 pounds with a slow carb approach and have never looked back.  I find it an easy lifestyle that allows a lot of flexibility in food choices, a focus on health, and the benefits of weight loss.  Low carb Mexican was my go-to cuisine for much of this weight loss journey, and I am pleased to be able to share these modified versions of this wonderfully robust cuisine with you.
