Guac and Margs: Your Dream Diet?

Already thinking about that summer body or looking to improve your healthy habits all around? It might not be as difficult as you would think. Where challenging diet plans can be a pain, we might just have the combo for you!

Avocados + Tequila = Perfect Pair

Often called the “Alligator Pear,” the avocado is very nutritious and contains a wide variety of nutrients, including 20 different vitamins and minerals.

Some of the more prominent nutrients include vitamin E, vitamin B6, vitamin B5, vitamin K, vitamin C, folate, potassium, iron, zinc, and magnesium!

Along with the various vitamins and minerals, avocados are loaded with fiber. The fiber in avocados makes them contribute to weight loss, lower the risk of many diseases, and reduce high blood sugar.

Not only are avocados extremely high in nutrients, but they help your body to better absorb nutrients from other foods too. Its no secret that avocados are high in fat, but have no fear! Avocados contain the GOOD kind of fat known as oleic acid. This monounsaturated fatty acid is linked to reduce inflammation and has shown to have positive effects on genes linked to cancer.

The most obvious perk? Avocados are delicious and satisfying! You can enjoy them with every meal, especially when you come to Mad Dog & Beans Mexican Cantina. Our made-to-order guacamole is as fresh as it gets and makes a great addition to any of our traditional dishes!

And what better to pair with our delicious guacamole than a signature margarita! Okay, so maybe mixed margaritas won’t help you fit you into that little black dress, but tequila alone is sure to benefit!

It is believed that drinking a shot of tequila before a meal boots your metabolism, and drinking a shot after a meal aids in digestion. Choosing tequila over beer and wine automatically reduces the amount of calories and carbs, just be sure to leave out the sugary mixers!

Who says you can't be health conscious and still the life of the party?!
