Cinco de Mayo healthier options for your celebration

Posted: Updated:
ROANOKE -

We found some Cinco de Mayo food and drink options that won't derail your diet. The selections we focused on include skinny margaritas with or without alcohol, chicken fajitas with whole wheat tortillas, and a lower fat version of a taco dip using Greek yogurt instead of sour cream.

Director of Exercise Science for Jefferson College of Health Sciences, Dr. Ally Bowersock says, "For some people, it is better to have full calorie full fat something so that you really taste every morsel. For some people who like to indulge a little more frequently the "sneaky treats" might be a better way to do it.
