My doctor said I had to lose some weight to help bring down my blood pressure and help my diabetes. I'm afraid that'll mean a diet with none of the foods I like. But then my doctor said many Latino foods are already healthy, like beans, rice, and corn tortillas. With a few tips, I can learn how to make all mis platillos favoritos (my favorite recipes) healthier. He even gave me a booklet with Latino recipes.
