The Transamerica Center for Health Studies® (TCHS) is focused on empowering consumers and employers so that they can achieve the best value and protection from their health coverage, as well as the best outcomes in their personal health and wellness. TCHS recognized that many people want to eat meals that improve their health, but also want to enjoy their favorite recipes. To that end, TCHS has partnered with Viva La Salud® from Northgate Gonzalez Market to create a bilingual collection of recipes that are healthier twists on traditional Mexican favorites.

Each recipe includes nutritional values so people can be aware of the calorie, fat, cholesterol, sodium, carbohydrate, fiber, and protein content of the foods they are feeding their families. TCHS also partnered with a Registered Dietician to provide helpful tips and facts that teach people more about the reasons behind the ingredients and cooking methods used in the recipes. The recipe book is free and available online and in NorthGate Markets locations. Happy Cooking!
