If you’re determined to eat healthier this year, you don’t have to give up Latino food cold turkey.
Here are a few options that might satisfy your cravings for favorite dishes while keeping your New Year’s resolution.
Empanadas Café (56-27 Van Doren St., Corona Park, Queens) opened in 2003 and offers 28 varieties of empanadas, including six that are made from organic, whole grain flour.
"The organic menu was developed three years ago and it’s something not available anywhere else," says Colombian Patricia Bernard, who owns the store with her sister Luz Helena Bermúdez.
With prices starting at $1.75 a bite, you’ll keep your wallet feeling healthy, too.
