These mildly spicy, super-filling, and healthy vegan buffalo cauliflower tacos are so incredibly delicious; even meat-eaters will rejoice!

Wow, friends. We’re done with over half of 2017 already. I hope you’re still holding strong with those new years resolutions I know y’all had in mind lol. I’ve been working my butt off this year and battling so many different things so let’s just say I’m doing the best that I can with said resolutions, ha!

I will say though that one thing I wanted to do is incorporate more plant-based meals into my diet and eat less meat. I’m sure by now you’ve heard all of the controversy over the recently released documentary on Netflix titled, “What The Health.”

The film emphasizes the impact of our current socio-economic situation and ties a link between that and our unhealthy lifestyles. To say this documentary sparked controversy would be putting it mildly. Some feel as though the film is incredibly biased, entirely one-sided, and full of misinformation. Others feel like the documentary depicts facts and sheds tremendous light on our healthcare system. Regardless of one’s views on the film, there is a lot to be said about our health system and the unhealthy eating habits of many Americans.

While I’m not entirely vegan, I do try and eat more plant-based food. In my personal opinion, I don’t have a hugely significant stance on meat as others may do. I’m pretty neutral but I do feel it is nutritionally best for me to consume less meat. These vegan buffalo cauliflower tacos make a great lunch/dinner option- and I honestly didn’t even miss the meat.

I’m a big fan of flavor and spice and I love that cauliflower pairs so well with buffalo sauce. Cauliflower also has that bite/crunch that acts great for a meat/poultry replacer. Sometimes I find that a lot of vegetarian/vegan meals lack that texture you get from eating meat. One thing about me is that I am a big texture person when it comes to my food. If it doesn’t feel right in my mouth, I won’t eat it— that’s what she said! (sorry, I had to do it ?). If you’re interested in other vegetarian/vegan eats look here and here. Enjoy!
