Nacho Cheese Cauliflower Tots (paleo + gluten-free)

by March 3, 2017

Nacho Cheese Cauliflower Tots #paleo #glutenfreeCrispy cauliflower tots packed with nacho cheese flavor without the dairy – a healthy alternative to deep-dried potato snacks. One of the most powerful steps I’ve taken to heal my relationship with food was giving myself permission to eat whenever I am hungry. 9am, 3pm or 1am. It doesn’t matter. I don’t follow “rules”, I don’t worry about eating before bed, or skipping breakfast if I’m not hungry. I don’t try to balance my fruits and veggies, or make sure there is a serving of healthy fats in each of my meals. I just let my body do the talking. The more I listen, the better I feel. I eat when I want to, I don’t have a lack mentality around my meals, I know that food will always be there, and I know that the food my body chooses will nourish me. Nacho Cheese Cauliflower Tots #paleo #glutenfree If I feel like eating cashews for dinner on a Wednesday night, that’s what I’ll do. If I don’t feel like having breakfast until 1pm on a Monday, I’ll do that, too. If I feel like having a vegan lunch and a full-on paleo dinner on the same day, I do it. If I am craving nacho chips and tater tots all at the same time, I create this recipe… and share it with you! Nacho Cheese Cauliflower Tots #paleo #glutenfree
