Better Than Takeout: 4 Mexican Recipes to Make At Home


Friday night comes around and you're feeling drained from the week that was.  You've managed to eat healthy all week and don't want to spoil that on the weekend.  When you're tired, though, it's all too easy to reach for the takeout menu and order food that you know you're going to regret the next day.

We've all been there and you don't need to feel guilty.  Instead, we're here to inspire you to get into the kitchen on Friday night and create a delicious meal from scratch, with love. And for all of you out there who love a bit of science to back up health benefits, research has shown that cooking your own food can reduce anxiety and stress levels instantly.
