The New Superfood - Tacos!

I had to take a photo of this sign painted on the side of a taco restaurant in the neighborhood of Colonia del Valle...

Benefits of the Taco

rich in calcium, fiber, potassium,
less calories than an apple.

aids digestion, eliminates gas,
low in cholesterol, and good for stress.

rich in proteins, iron, sodium and iron.

purifies the blood, improves circulation
and lowers cholesterol.

rich in vitamin C, is diuretic,
helps digestive function.

rich in vitamin C, is diuretic,
natural detoxifier

(If your experience with tacos is solely through Taco Bell, you may not know that Mexicans squeeze a bit of lime juice onto their taco, and that pineapple is an ingredient of "tacos al pastor".  Also, no Mexican would put shredded lettuce on a taco.)

This is all very well and good, but this does not take into account all that cholesterol-laden grease.  I don't think that my doctor would advise a constant diet of tacos as a superfood!
