Nacho Nutrition

Nachos are not a superfood. If you want a healthy lunch, go and have a salad. However, as with all foodstuffs, moderation is key so rest assured you can have your nacho and eat it. And not get really fat. Maybe.

Well I don’t know about you, but I’m suitably bored now. On the plus side- who knew nachos were so full of vitamins?

If you’re still worried about your weight/cholesterol due to nacho ingestion, listen to Terri Floyd from the lovely Persephone Magazine. She says: “I do believe that you should take time out to enjoy really sinful, incredible food in moderation.”

Yes Terri, Nacho Times salutes you.
