    We all know what we’re supposed to do to stay healthy. Eat more fruits and vegetables and exercise on a regular basis.

    On Wednesday night, LatinoFoodie ventured into Mercado la Paloma, which is south of downtown Los Angeles, where a short, stoutly chef sitting behind a table with a stack of cookbooks proudly signed his name one by one.

    Food Trucks by Heather Shouse I picked this book up simply because of the title.  Seriously.  Before I even opened the book, I began to panic: could the promise of the title be yet another let down?  Would I be reading about food trucks in New York or Miami?  What good would that do me here in Los Angeles?  I Continue Reading...
