Cauliflower tacos to help the body detox | Meg Unprocessed

Megan Evans of "Meg Unprocessed" shares a simple, healthy recipe to help you body detox after overeating.

Family gatherings and watch parties for the Super Bowl are notorious for one thing...food. 

And let's be honest, it's usually not healthy. If you ever eat a little too much, the recipe below is a great one to help you detox!

And if cauliflower walnut tacos aren't your thing though, you can also detox by drinking warm lemon water in the morning to help flush the toxins out, balance the body's pH levels and keep the alkaline in. 

It's actually easier to detox than you think, you just need to know what foods will help you do it.

INSTRUCTIONS 

  • Except for the lettuce, add all of the ingredients into a food processor. 
  • Pulse until cauliflower and walnuts are broken up and everything is mixed together — the sizing should be similar to cauliflower rice. Tip: Beware over pulsing or the mixture will get mushy! 
  • Taste the mixture for flavor, and add more spice to get it to where you like it. 
  • Scoop the mixture in a bowl to serve or scoop right into your lettuce leaves to serve. 
  • Top with pico de gallo, cashew sour cream (or regular if you'd like) or guacamole.
