Is Kelly Rowland unintentionally on the Taco Cleanse?

At the launch of her new flavors of Seagram’s Escapes, the singer told PEOPLE about her love of Mexican food. “I am a nacho wh—. I swear to you. I was raised in Texas, so Tex-Mex was just my s—. Nachos, carne asada, burritos, tacos — I could have tacos every day.”

Though she had never heard of the latest fad diet that actually encourages this behavior, she was intrigued to say the least — and says she pretty much already adheres to it on occasion.

“Tacos make everybody happy,” she says. “I eat them for breakfast, lunch, and dinner sometimes. We have a chef come in and make food every day because I like to eat really clean — she’ll make a Texas breakfast taco, then for lunch I’ll have turkey tacos, and for dinner I’ll also have turkey tacos.” (But before you go running for the tortillas, she admits she usually replaces the carbs with butter lettuce).

When she’s doing the cooking herself, though, Rowland keeps it light and simple. “Right now my signature dish is probably just fish. I just learned to cook it right. Very simple — olive oil, salt and pepper. Sometimes with a little lemon. But I don’t do too much to it; I don’t feel like you need to.”

And how have Rowland’s eating habits affected her 1-year-old son, Titan? “[He eats] everything,” she says. “I don’t want him to be a picky eater, because mama loves everything. I don’t want him to be one of those kids that’s like ‘Ew, I don’t like that.’ We literally have tried everything with him since he’s been able to eat food.”

I applaud her stance on feeding her son. Way too often parents think that they have to feed their children “kid food.” They’ll make dinner for themselves and then heat up pizza, chicken nuggets, buttered noodles, hotdogs, or macaroni and cheese for their kids. If you feed your child what you’re having at mealtime from day one, they won’t know any different! There’s no law that says they have to subsist on food you find on a kids menu in a restaurant, just don’t keep it in the house and then it’s not an option for them.

Microsoft announced Forza Motorsport 6: Apex last month at a media event held by the company to discuss their future plans for PC gaming. Debris at a destroyed administrative building of Muammar Gaddafi in Libya’s capital Tripoli. This, combined with the Great General that will likely result from their use, allows Greece to have an almost undefeatable classical-era push if timed correctly.
