Paleo Fish Taco Bowls

We have a serious amount of life happening right now.  Everything seems to be moving at rapid pace.  We are also sitting on the cusp of some potential monumental changes, or simply solidifying that everything in our little ecosystem will stay exactly the same for a touch longer.   But right now we wait, and while we wait I have been trying to keep busy.  Thus I have been cooking, baking and talking non-stop.   Which just means you reap the rewards of new recipes, such as this awesome Paleo (or vegan if you choose) dish.  Try using this recipe as your base and customize any way you like by throwing in any extra veggies laying around in your crisper (broccoli is pretty darn great).   Experiment, enjoy, but most importantly take advantage of the approaching warmer temperatures.
