Nestled in the bustling heart of West Miami, LatinLite is a hidden culinary gem. Originally established in 1995 as Fat Busters, LatinLite is the brainchild of restauranteur Thais Carreño. As a member of The American Obesity Association, and a recipient of Cooking Light Magazine’s Shining Light Award, Thais was determined to break the stigma of a conventional health food eatery. LatinLite’s philosophy is not about weight loss. It is about making healthful, delicious and nutritious food choices available to everyone in the community. Thais, who is a mother of five, says her secret to almost two decades of success is her love for family, food, and her community. Now in 2013, 18 years deep in the LatinLite legacy, Thais’ son Raul is beginning to pave the way for the next generation. “We want to change the way people think about healthy food. It’s not just about low-fat meals anymore, it is about food with more nutritional value overall. We use the freshest ingredients possible and include “super foods” like broccoli, lentils and sweet potatoes in our menu every day,” says Raul.

In addition to offering traditional takeout and having a small sit down area, LatinLite also offers a personalized weekly catering service, known in Spanish as a “cantina,” cooked fresh every day and delivered to homes and places of business. Located just one mile west of the Florida International University (FIU) main campus, on 8th Street and 122nd Avenue, LatinLite is open 6 days a week: Monday through Friday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday, 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The Latino American Who’s Who is a New York based biographical publication that selects and distinguishes leading Latino professionals throughout the world who have attained a recognizable degree of success in their field of endeavor and thereby contribute to the growth of their industry and culture.  The Latino Who’s Who promotes an awareness of the achievements of the Latino professional and executive by creating a networking platform to provide recognition of individual accomplishments. The annual registry of the Latino American “Who’s Who” is formatted as an elegant hard cover edition as well as an online edition that provides information on recognized individuals. It also contains cross references by names, professions and family country of origin.
