East Los Angeles' Most Famous Restaurant: El Tepeyac

El Tepeyac is a famous Mexican restaurant which dates back to 1942 and is owned by the Rojas family.

Nutrition for a Healthier Life

Nutrition is incredibly important if you want to feel energized and increase your lifespan. What people eat not only affects the body but also affects the environment and the future to come. Every year there are more and more cases of obesity, diabetes, malnutrition, high cholesterol, strokes, heart disease, and other diet-related diseases. The chemicals found in the food we eat have a negative effect on us. Sodium Benzoate, a chemical used to preserve food, has been associated with cancer.
