This cauliflower filling is a must-try!

Calling all Taco Lovers!!!! Here’s the scoop! So my mom and I were talking the other evening and she had this grand idea (because she is brilliant): to create and post a new healthy taco recipe everyday for the next 30 days. Of course, this is inspired out of our love for tacos and also because tacos can be so easy, convenient, healthful, portable, and versatile!! (I could go on…) So, while everyone else is doing the kale cleanse or whatever… welcome to the taco life! I am hashtagging it healthy taco 30 (haha) ? I can’t wait! Kicking it off with BBQ cauliflower tacos with a tangy cilantro coleslaw. OH SNAP THEY'RE GOOD. -@root_for_food
