My Nopal Cactus Diet

was for me the best way to loose 50 pounds in 6 weeks. Healthy natural food with local organic ingredients helped me to enjoy actually being on my first diet. At the beginning I was afraid of getting too hungry, especially after starting to exercise on a daily basis, but with 3 wonderful meals a day and a lot of tea and water there was no suffering at all. Nopal Cactus is seen as an excellent source of healthy fiber and was the main ingredients of most of my favorite diet dishes. I found a way to use it in my breakfast “cocktails”, salads, soups and even desserts.

Here are some of my favorite diet dishes:

Cherry Tomato and Nopal Cactus Gazpacho

Grilled Chicken with Nopal Cactus and Chili Salad

Yogurt and Nopal Cactus Foam with Hibiscus
