5 Healthy Versions of Your Favorite Recipes

It's a cultural imperative in a Latin household that when you have guests, you serve them food. You probably try to serve them coffee too, regardless of the time of day. No matter how politely your guests refuse the offer, you will go down fighting to give your guests something to eat. But here's the thing that no one ever wants to talk about: Many traditional Latin recipes (including my favorite, Empanadas de Carne) are fried, breaded, or otherwise loaded in trans fat, calories, and cholesterol. As delicious as these recipes are, they're like serving a heart attack on a plate. Still, that doesn't mean you have to give up your favorite foods! We've rounded up five lighter versions of classic recipes to enjoy the next time you're having a party or a guest stopping by. Salud!
