Cheer up, you too can take part in Cinco de Mayo! The second-largest Mexican community in the world calls the U.S. home and today, it’s time to celebrate their independence!
Join me in celebrating Cinco de Mayo by making my Mexican Rice Bowls. Avoid the crowds and feel festive (without the offensive sombreros and fake mustaches) — all from the comfort of your own home.
All I ask from you is to skip the tequila so one doesn’t become two, three, floor. 😉
To power up this meal, I’ve added nutritional yeast, which gives you that cheesey taste (with NO SALT, NO SUGAR, and NO CHOLESTEROL) and a delicious dose of B12 that the body uses to produce energy. I’ve also included red pepper flakes for a fat burner that research shows may also combat against cardiovascular disease and cancer.
