ARE FAJITAS HEALTHY?
Fajitas ordered from a restaurant are often packed with extra fat, sodium, and calories and are not always the healthiest choice. Craving fajitas? You can make this delicious dish at home for a healthy meal that you can feel good about.
Simple substitutions can help you make regular foods, like fajitas, more nutritious and lower in calories and fat. Here are some tips for making healthy fajitas:
- Use small tortillas and fill them full of veggies. Corn tortillas and whole-wheat tortillas are the best choice, or just use lettuce wraps. I also like to use brown rice or quinoa instead of white rice on the side.
- Choose healthier fats. Cook your fajita vegetables in the least amount of fat possible. This recipe only uses 1 tablespoon of olive oil- which is a healthy unsaturated fat.
- Load up on veggies. This recipe is delicious because it combines the traditional fajita veggies onion and bell peppers with zucchini, yellow squash, and mushrooms. Add your favorite toppings for even more veggies- lettuce, salsa, tomatoes, jalapenos, green onions, olives, cilantro, corn, and more.
This oven roasted fajita vegetables recipe below is a perfect example of healthy fajitas, it’s loaded with healthy vegetables, low in calories, and seasoned to perfection without using extra fat and oil. Add your favorite toppings for a perfectly balanced, healthy, and nutritious meal.
