Healthy Recipe: Buffalo Cauliflower Bites
It’s October, which means playoff baseball, especially if you’re a Red Sox or a Dodgers fan. Even if you don’t care about baseball, you’ll probably find yourself at some championship game and/or World Series party. What you may not find is a healthy snack that fits into your weight loss plan. The solution: bring one yourself! These Buffalo Cauliflower Bites have all the flavor of the traditional deep fried buffalo chicken wings, but with a better nutritional profile. They’re low fat, low carb, Keto, and paleo, so they’re sure to please everyone at the party.
