Hello & Happy Tuesday!!









If there is one cuisine I love, it’s Spanish style foods! or, anything with a little bit of heat!


I find that when you add one element of heat it enhances all flavors, almost like salt does. However, years ago, I ran from the sight of heat in any food. This is proof that as you age your tastebuds evolve. In actuality they become less and less to by the time you’re in your 70’s and 80’s it makes it hard to discern whether food is spoiled and you have to add an abundance of salt to everything to even taste the flavors. This is why that age group typically has a higher salt intake. 


One of my favorite holidays simply based on the food, is Cinco de Mayo! For whatever reason, perhaps my background, I’ve always gravitated towards Spanish foods. I find that they are for the most part plant based, filling, packed with flavor, and always heat!


Since I don’t have countless authentic Spanish dishes, I thought I would aggregate a list of my top favorite dishes with heat to make navigating the perf vegan Cinco de Mayo dishes seamless!



From salads to apps, cocktails and desserts..
