Slim Snack: Cauliflower Popcorn

If you’re anything like me, spending a relaxing evening at home often calls for a good movie, my fuzzy blanket and a yummy snack. I recently tried this new recipe from FitnessRX and it turned out to be so delicious, I knew I had to share it!  This Cauliflower “Popcorn” recipe is essentially just a roasted veggie, but it fully satisfied my late night craving for something salty and crunchy without extensive calories. Plus, its SUPER easy to make and allows you some freedom when it comes to the flavors you want to include.
