Celebrate Low-Carb Mexican Independence Day

Mexican Flag: Low Carb Mexican Independence DaySeptember 16th is El Grito de la Independencia (“Cry of Independence” – Mexican Independence Day) and this year marks the 202nd anniversary of Mexico winning independence from Spanish rule.

According to the Presidio La Bahia website:

“In the early nineteenth century, Mexico, with a little influence from the US and France, began talking about a revolt against Spain. Father Miguel Hidalgo from Dolores, Mexico, was a leader of one of the rallying groups. Hidalgo and his officers were planning a revolt for late fall of 1810. The Spanish people found out about the revolt which led the Spanish Government to order the arrest of Hidalgo and his officers. When Hidalgo found out, he called a meeting at his church. He rang the church bell on the night of September 15, 1810 to call his congregation to mass. Here Father Hidalgo rallied the people to fight. He gave the speech which is now known as ‘Grito de Delores’, saying ‘Viva Mexico’ and ‘Viva la independencia!’ These famous words have been remembered and are said each year at the Independence Day celebrations.”

  1. Oh my gosh Andrew! Can’t believe I missed this day! Must be the craziness of life right now. Tex-Mex and Mexico are near and dear to this Texas girl’s heart! Cinco de Mayo where we celebrate Mexico’s defeat of invading France is a huge holiday in Texas as well. 🙂

    I’m so happy to see other low carb Mexican dishes here! I love that Mexican food and the cultures that have influenced it as well as Tex-Mex are healthy and have great low carb options!!! Yay you for remembering this very important day!
