The flavors of Mexico make it to most dinner tables in America. Most of us can’t resist the bold flavors of our favorite taco or enchilada.
I have very little memory of eating Mexican food as a kid. We had the traditional crunchy taco dish, and the occasional Indian Tacos, but neither of them was on our weekly menu. I would have loved if they could have replaced some of my grandparent’s favorites, like liver and onions, or Salisbury steak- some things just aren’t appealing to a kid…..
When I moved out on my own, one of my first jobs was at a local Mexican Restaurant, where I waited tables and ate lots of great food….boy those were good times!
One of my favorite things about Mexican is all the toppings- and I love them all, especially cilantro. I know not everyone likes it, but it’s super healthy! Did you know it helps detox your body of heavy metals? I would eat it just for this reason, considering we are exposed to heavy metals every day in things like fish, vaccines, drinking water, dyes, chemtrails, and much more!! Heavy metals are not broken down and are accumulated in our body. The build-up of these metals could cause kidney damage, cancers, and even death. So cilantro and Chlorella Buy Chlorella detox tablets here both do a great job of helping our bodies detox from all those metals- awesome right?
I hope you love these as much as my family does!
