In addition to individual consultations for firefighters, each firehouse now has a subscription to EatingWell
to give them inspiration for healthier meals. And Worley has worked with the EatingWell
Test Kitchen to develop recipes for healthier versions of San Antonio’s Tex-Mex favorites. We trimmed beef enchiladas by making them with lean beef, adding mushrooms and opting for whole-wheat tortillas. Frito pie turns gourmet with homemade baked chips topped with bean and vegetable-packed chili. And chiles rellenos are stuffed with chicken, corn and just a little cheese, then pan-fried instead of deep-fried. With Maria’s efforts—and these five healthier recipes—the San Antonio firefighters are on the road to being in tip-top shape, saving their lives—and others.
