Mexican food seems to be unfortunately stereotyped as greasy, meaty and cheesy cuisine, laden with all the bad things!

At the heart of authentic Mexican Food is bright colours, fresh crisp veggies and powerful flavours such a jalapenos and lime. It's time we took a step back and begun to cook Mexican food the way it was intended - FRESH & HEALTHY! With a powerfully rich culture it is time to embrace the unique flavours of MEXICO! And why can't it be fresh and healthy...?
