Low-carb cauliflower bacon popcorn – say what????

Perfect for snacking on in front of the TV or sports game. Especially if you love garlic and bacon.

Cauliflower bacon is also the perfect healthy snack for those who are Paleo, gluten-free, grain-free, wheat-free and for vegetarians, simply omit the bacon pieces – voila!

Low-Carb Cauliflower Bacon Popcorn

Cauliflower popcorn is such an amazing nutritious alternative to regular popcorn.

What’s wrong with popcorn I hear you say? Most people regard popcorn as a low-calorie snack. But when you realise popcorn is a high-starch grain, you’ll think twice next time you reach for a bowl.

3 tbsp (40g) of uncooked kernels = 7 cups (approx) cooked popcorn = 29g total carbs (23g net carbs)

Microwavable Popcorn – avoid!!!!

And then there’s the microwave popcorn. Please promise you will never ever buy this toxic snack ever again. They are filled with unhealthy oils (hydrogenated soybean oil, canola oil, palm oil for example), additives, preservatives and flavourings (hint, that’s not real butter in those plastic microwaveable bags).

If you’re unsure of which oils are healthy, and which ones to avoid, read my Ultimate Guide To Healthy Oils.
