I think you will agree with me that when you’re craving movie theatre popcorn (but don’t want to break your diet) that there’s no substitute for Cheesy Cauliflower Popcorn.  

The problem that I have found is that popcorn can be deceiving when it comes to dieting and counting calories.  Also if you are on a low carb or Ketogenic diet then popcorn is off the list.  

The solution is you guessed it, replace popcorn for yummy cauliflower with a delicious recipe that is not only light but has health benefits to boot.

In this post, there are five delicious cheesy cauliflower popcorn recipes with just a little difference between them.

There is a little something here for everyone, so grab your apron and get going.
