This was one of my first homemade meals after my European vacation and I tell you it was a welcome sight!

I loved most of my meals in Europe, but they do have a LOT of bread there! Croissants for breakfast, I should say, Nutella croissants, pizza and pannini’s for lunch, and pasta for dinner. We would order salads, but sometimes it was just iceberg lettuce with oil and vinegar (not my kind of salad).

That being said, I ate more bread than I normally do and when I got home, I wanted to get back to some of my healthy swaps! This Paleo Tex Mex Beef and Cauliflower casserole was a great weekday meal, giving me high protein, veggies and a ton of flavor without all the extra carbs. Paleo beef and cauliflower casserole
