I find myself in disbelief that I once lived a life where I didn’t eat vegetables. These days I pile the veggies high on my plate because TBH they just make me feel amazing. Mr. No FOMO Food and I have had a few curveballs thrown our way recently and things in our house have felt a bit uprooted and off kilter. I was feeling disconnected all around but forced myself to refocus on my priorities and think about what drives me daily.
I love being in the kitchen, I love talking to friends and family about the vibrancy whole foods bring to the art of cooking. I especially love debunking myths surrounding a healthy lifestyle. I recently came upon a passage written by Julia Child in Mastering the Art of French Cooking that felt well timed and deeply refreshing.
“Cooking is not a particularly difficult art, and the more you cook and learn about cooking, the more sense it makes. But like any art it requires practice and experience. The most important ingredient you can bring to it is love of cooking for its own sake.”
Often times, we shy away from the unfamiliar. Instead, let’s embrace the crazy, the chaos and the unknown. I am going to brush off my doormat and welcome the changes with happy spirits and positive energy.
Is cauliflower foreign to you? Don’t be frightened! Raw cauliflower has a very certain off-putting odor but once roasted in a hot oven this veggie turns into something you just want to keep eating. When purchasing a cauliflower head, look for one that is very firm to the touch and looks very clean. The leaves on the bottom should be green and healthy.
My husband says this Roasted Cauliflower Taco recipe epitomizes the essence of No FOMO Food and I have to agree. The flowerets are roasted until tender and pack the perfect amount of heat for the ultimate veggie taco. As for the taco itself…crunchy, tangy, creamy and spicy all add up to one epic taco night.
I truly love this recipe! I used Love and Lemon’s cookbook recipe as a guide the first time making these and I’ve since adjusted from there. Her book is an essential tool in my healthy eating toolbox.
You might have noticed I used the spelling flowerets instead of florets. This is the way that Julia Child recommends and I actually think it makes more since! It looks prettier written so I’m sticking to it!
