Low-Fat Tamales: A Healthy Twist on a Traditional Favorite

Apr 11, 2020

Tamales have long been a cherished staple in many Latin American cultures, with their rich flavors and hearty textures. However, traditional tamales are often high in fat and calories, making them a guilty pleasure that many people try to avoid. But what if we told you that you can now enjoy the same delicious taste of tamales without the guilt? At MUIR DIABLO OCCUPATIONAL MEDICINE, we have crafted a collection of low-fat tamales that will satisfy your cravings while keeping your health in check.

Why Choose Our Low-Fat Tamales?

Our low-fat tamales are a testament to our commitment to both taste and health. We understand that indulging in your favorite foods should not come at the cost of your well-being. That's why our team of expert chefs has worked tirelessly to develop a recipe that retains all the flavors you love, while significantly reducing the fat content.

The Ingredients That Make a Difference

When it comes to creating delicious low-fat tamales, the quality and selection of ingredients are paramount. We prioritize using fresh, locally sourced ingredients that are known for their superior nutritional values. By carefully handpicking each component, we ensure that every bite of our low-fat tamales delivers robust flavors without the excess fat.

1. Lean Protein

Our low-fat tamales are packed with lean protein, which is essential for muscle repair, growth, and overall health. We use premium cuts of tender, skinless chicken breast or lean turkey as the base for our mouthwatering fillings. This lean protein not only provides a satisfying savory taste but also helps to keep you feeling fuller for longer.

2. Fiber-Rich Whole Grains

We take pride in incorporating whole grains into our low-fat tamales to boost their nutritional value. The outer corn masa dough is made from stone-ground cornmeal, providing a natural source of dietary fiber. Whole grains are known for their role in supporting digestive health, reducing the risk of chronic diseases, and maintaining balanced blood sugar levels.

3. Flavorful Seasonings

Our seasoned chefs are masters at creating tantalizing flavor profiles that will leave you craving more. We use a combination of aromatic herbs, spices, and carefully selected seasonings to infuse our low-fat tamales with a burst of delectable flavors. These spices not only elevate the taste but also bring various health benefits, such as anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties.
