A quick and easy, weeknight dinner – gone healthy! The classic flavors of fish tacos over gluten free cauliflower rice!
Hi! I’m back from Food Faith Fitness to share a easy and healthy dinner with you! But first, I have a question for ya’ll:
Mangoes. How do you feel about them?
Are they a little to tropical and “out there” for you, and you’ll stick to apples and bananas thank you very much?
Or, are you all about the island life, and a drink with a cute little umbrella in it is pretty much your bread and butter?
I am somewhere in the middle. I love me some pineapple…but any of the other foreign fruits, well, kind of freak me out.
To be completely honest with you, I once had an awful, and totally mentally scarring experience with mangoes. Read: The very first one I tried was rotten.
So, not that overly scarring. I may have been a wee bit over dramatic.
But, what else is new.
Ever since that day, I haven’t forayed into the fruity world much beyond the usual suspects. I always figured that there was a reason that the saying goes “an apple a day blah blah blah” and not a “mango a day….”
Well, today, I have decided that maybe they (who are “they” anyway?) SHOULD change that saying to “a mango a day” because, ummm, I HAVE BEEN MISSING OUT ON LIFE.
It all started when my hubs (a mango <3er) brought a few home.
And then proceeded to harass me over and over and over until I tried one with him.
My taste buds fell off my head.
I then proceeded to put mango on ALL THE THINGS.
Including this ridiculously quick Fish Taco Bowl.
And ridiculously pretty. THE COLOR.
AND, ridiculously healthy.
It’s like a fish taco. Without the carbs. But, with ALL the taste. FIST PUMP.
If you are watching your carbs like a lot of us you MUST try this delicious low carb cloud bread. It’s a staple around these parts!
Please note that I accidentally typed “fish bump.” That would have been awkward.
Cauliflower “rice” is the perfect, light base to absorb all that yum Greek yogurt lime sauce, and to really showcase the sweetness of the mango.
Which just also happens to balance out the spicy fish in ways that I can tell you, but your taste budz must experience to fully know the wondrous-ity (not a real word.)
So, what are you waiting for? It’s health-ay, it’s yumm-ay, AND it’s pretty-ay!
You know what to do.
