Are Arepas Good for Weight Loss?

Finding healthy food options, in general, is hard, but in New York City where you are surrounded by a variety of food places, you may find it difficult to stick to your diet. At Areppas Restaurants, we understand the importance of having healthy options available for any diet! Our three locations focus on creating fresh, healthy, authentic Latin American food, making us the Best Latin Restaurant in NYC.  

One of our most popular and versatile menu options are our arepas! Arepa is a popular bread in Central and South American cuisine and offers a variety of nutrients depending on what the arepa is stuffed with. These Venezuelan food staples are a great alternative to the American sandwich. Our arepas are more than just warm corn pockets, it can be a great tool for weight loss as well! Depending on the stuffing of your arepa, it can be a great source of protein and vitamins including vitamin A and C. Plus our arepas are gluten-free making them a great choice for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. Check out some of our most popular arepas for a healthier lifestyle!
