After all, the more antioxidants you consume, the more you’re able to fight off free radicals.  I love the sounds of that since the healthier your cells, the less chance of illness and injury.

So now let’s make cauliflower popcorn😊.Cauliflower Popcorn with Yeast

Just like popcorn, it’s low in calories and if you roast or sauté cauliflower verses steam, it’s much more flavorful and crispy too!  I love it raw, roasted with sea salt and freshly ground pepper, or sprinkle it with hydrolyzed yeast (or parmesan cheese) for a real treat.  YUM….even more addicting than my popcorn!
