Caulifower Ranch Chips

I hope everyone had a great weekend. I trust everyone is trying to get back to their healthy diets after splurging over Superbowl weekend. I think I did very well. While I did partake in some organic shortbread cookies, I stuck to the rest of my diet. I am on my 10th day of yoga in a row and I don't want to spoil all my hard work!

Cauliflower helps me stick to my diet. Being oh so low in calories, only 27 calories for one cup of cauliflower, it is my go to food. While everyone else was munching on their potato chips, I was crunching away on my baked Cauliflower ranch chips. 

Now my disclaimer is, they won't be as crunchy as potato chips, unless you fry them. I don't fry them. I bake them until the outsides are crispy and the inside is a little chewy. You can bake them until crisp all the way too. 

This is my favorite way... extra crispy. You just have to watch your oven to get them to the correct desired crispness.
