Mexican food with island style is what you can look forward to at participating Healthy Dining restaurant Maui Tacos. The flavor is guaranteed to “do a hula on your tongue,” according to the restaurant. Born of a love of Mexican food and the flavors of his Maui home, the first Maui Tacos was opened by Chef Ellman in 1993, and it has been serving his signature flavors and dishes with the world ever since.
With a menu of flavorful burritos, tacos, salads, quesadillas and nachos and a wide variety of freshly made salsas, you’re sure to find your perfect pick. Everything is made fresh daily with zero trans-fat. Maui Tacos is a delicious demonstration of how Mexican food can be a healthy choice.
You don’t have to follow a vegetarian diet to enjoy this menu choice. Black beans, rice, lettuce, tomato and potatoes are all piled high in this tempting bowl for a fiber- and protein-rich meal. Give it a try for Meatless Monday or any day of the week.
Island fare wouldn’t be complete without fresh fish choices like this one. This burrito is packed with grilled fish, black beans, rice, and a touch of Cilantro Jalapeno Dressing (request less Cilantro Jalapeno Dressing, 0.5 oz.). Skip the chips served on the side to keep this a dietitian-recommended menu choice.
Grilled Adobo Chicken Bowl
If chicken is more your style, this bowl is a great option for flavor and lean protein. Charbroiled chicken is seasoned to perfection and served with rice, cheese, beans and lettuce. Including lean protein in your diet is a smart choice for keeping hunger at bay and managing weight.
Chicken Mango Salad
How’s this for island flavor? Crisp lettuce, juicy tomatoes, black beans, rice and cheese topped with savory charbroiled chicken and sweet mango salsa are combined to create a salad that will make your taste buds tingle. This salad is served in a tortilla shell, not included in the nutrition analysis posted on HealthyDiningFinder.com. Healthy Dining’s dietitians recommend requesting no tortilla strips and less cheese (1 oz.).
