Slow Cooker Hoisin Pork Tacos with Broccoli Slaw

For reasons unknown to me, I woke up and decided to cut the soda habit on Saturday morning. We can call this a quarter life crisis or something, but it’s time to make some changes. I allowed myself one Pepsi on Saturday while at work and haven’t had once since. I’m staying strong. Pray for me. Now, I don’t think drinking soda is an unhealthy habit, I think drinking lots of soda when I should be drinking water is a terrible habit. I’ve also quadrupled our vegetable intake just in four short days. Yep, guess it was time to make some changes.

I’ve never been one to diet, I just don’t enjoy depriving myself of delicious goodies (have you looked around this blog?). But I have always believed in moderation. White trapped at work, I was drinking way to many tiny cans of the tempting caffeine injected nectar otherwise known as Pepsi Max… Then after a long days work, I just couldn’t sleep. I was tired but with all that extra caffeine running through my veins my brain just wasn’t shutting off. Out with friends, So after that one on Saturday morning, it’s been cold turkey. (What the heck does cold turkey mean anyway?)

I’ll let you know how many days go by before I break.

This combo looks amazing! Hoisin sauce goes really well on pork and the veggies must give the tacos a lot of freshness! Thanks for the recipe!

The pulled pork looks wonderful.

It means, a turkey that's running around without it's feathers in winter. :D Ok, lame .... This looks so good! What's broccoli slaw? Is it made with broccoli stems? I'd imagine that would give it a good crunchy texture ... nice combination.

Oooo... kind of a Wang Chung meets the Gonzales Clan taco... sweet! I'm all over this one.

We'll say a prayer (and kill a couple of chickens) for you on the soda purge. I guess I havent had anything soda-wise in almost 20 years. It was tough getting off that carbonated kick.
