1.) Trade the refried beans for black beans
2.) Choose more chicken or fish over beef
3.) Trade flour for corn tortillas
4.) Consume more guac and salsa instead of corn chips
5.) Ditch the sugary syrup. Try a real Margarita which includes tequila, lime and a lower glycemic sugar option such as agave syrup or stevia.
