    This recipe was so simple but full of flavor- I’ve been looking for food that’s easy to make and use low carb vegetables to fit into my fitness eating plan macro’s (currently, I’m on a high protein and high fat diet and not allowed conventional carbs!).
    Thank you for the post and hope you don’t mind if I reblog 🙂

    Quick easy way to spruce up the good ol’ cauliflower and broccoli. I cut my florets a little chunkier to give more crunch and left out the grated coconut but still tasted fantastic. Yum!
