These buffalo cauliflower bites are low calorie, vegan, paleo, and make great party snacks.
It’s Monday and I’m already exhausted. How is this possible? I’m chugging coffee trying to get my brain to jump start without much luck so far. One downside of working for yourself, is that there is no one there to pick up the slack when you’re having one of “those days”. After last weeks unfortunate turn of events, I’m finding myself way behind.
I’m hopeful that this week will be better, and that I’ll be able to get back into my productivity groove ASAP. Until then, I hope you’ll all bear with me. Simplicity is the name of the game right now, and there’s nothing simpler than roasted cauliflower. It’s The Hubs most favorite vegetable.
That is, until I coated it will buffalo sauce. Now it’s his EXTRA most favorite vegetable.
I try to add buffalo sauce to as much healthy stuff as possible because it’s my secret to getting The Hubs to eat it. Buffalo sauce is his kryptonite.
The Hubs’ other favorite thing is football, and now that the season has started back up again, I’ve had snack food on the brain. I know these paleo buffalo cauliflower bites aren’t really a meal, per se, but they are great healthy, meatless option for your Monday night football snacking pleasure.
Personally, I don’t really care about football at all, but I do love snack food. In the good old days I could take down chips and dip, pigs in a blanket, crackers and cheese, and more, but as I get older, I try to make smarter snacking decisions.
Not only can I no longer eat whatever I want and not gain a pound, but these days more and more foods are not very friendly to my insides, so it’s more about a small indulgence here and there paired with some healthier, gut friendly options.
