I get it—healthy eating is like, sooooo out. It’s all about pork belly, poutine, and friggin’ butter ham soup these days. But even a professional eater like myself has hopes of attending a pool party or two this summer—and NOT needing to wear sweatpants under an extra-large promotional beer T-shirt, mmkay? Which is why I sheepishly confess that I’m kinda glad Rosa Mexicano has thrown some lighter items on their new “Healthy and Organic” menu (below) available through June 13. Don’t worry, it still includes tequila and pitchers of sangria. Olé!
