Recipes: Mexican food, wraps and rolls
Focused on Health - July 2013
These recipes are part of the Healthy Bites challenge to help you eat meals with less processed meat.
Try making this fast and tasty veggie wrap instead of a deli meat sandwich. It’s a healthy swap because deli meat is processed meat and can increase your colon cancer risks. Added bonus: use whole wheat tortillas to sneak in extra cancer-fighting whole grains.
This bean burrito recipe is rich in fiber to help prevent colon cancer. Plus, it’s a low-fat, low-calorie option that may help you avoid unwanted weight gain. And, maintaining a healthy weight is a good way to keep your cancer risks low.
Spinach is a main ingredient in these veggie rolls. That’s good because spinach is packed with antioxidants that may protect your body from several cancers.
Create a make-your-own tostada station with servings of beans, salsa, and lettuce. These foods offer a heaping of cancer-fighting goodness that’ll make you say, “Olé!”
