Healthy Eating Ideas for the New Year

As a 30+ year vegetarian, I am always looking for new ways to satisfy my desire for delicious food that is also healthy and easy to make.  When we first moved to México I kept trying to use my favorite cookbooks, but got frustrated with the difficulty in finding exact ingredients.  Now I use cookbooks mostly for inspiration as I know what I am likely to find locally.

It has a bit of a funky modern vibe and the food is very good. Located on Vicente Guerrero 216 a block and a half East of Aquiles Serdan it is on the edge of Centro Historico.
