20 Healthy Recipes for Cinco de Mayo | Get Inspired Everyday!

It’s no exaggeration to say I think about food day and night. Really… I go to bed thinking about food, and I wake up excited about what I’m going to eat. So it’s only natural that I look at any holiday as an excuse to eat yummy things!

I know I’m not alone in this by any means. After all, we tend to create weekly holidays just for eating. I mean why not make an ordinary Tuesday a ‘Taco Tuesday’? And… is there a single day of the year that’s not a food holiday now? I feel like I’m always hearing it’s ‘doughnut day’ or something along those lines.

So I hope whatever your circumstances are this particular Cinco de Mayo, that these recipes will provide some inspiration. And I hope you and whatever family/friends you have currently living with you enjoy them.

Hopefully soon we’ll be able to throw backyard parties again. And if that’s the case, I have so many ideas for this summer. But for now, we’ll just be celebrating the next few holidays quietly at home. And of course we’ll be making delicious things to eat!
