Roasted Cauliflower & Broccoli healthy snacking recipe

Lately I’ve not been counting my calories and definitely overeating and then immediately hating myself for it. I am not the type that can be moderate about anything I do. I am either on the healthy train or off of it and its a HUGE problem when I am off of it.

Its been about 2 months of “not caring” but the first month wasn’t terrible.

For the last 2-3 weeks, I have eaten way too much. I knew it earlier this past week when I stepped on the scale and I had gained 3.5 lbs and still continued to indulge for the rest of the week. Today my husband and I went out for lunch at the Olive Garden with his brother and sister-in-law and it was so utterly fantastic but I know if I had logged my calories it was probably my whole daily allotment!

While drowning myself in self-pity tonight, I did some research on healthy snacks. This is another challenge that working moms face. Its way too easy to go out to eat for breakfast, lunch and then grab takeout for dinner. Of course this seems logical because time is one thing I don’t have a lot of.

I’ve been on a hummus kick lately and I had some fresh cauliflower so I googled “cauliflower with hummus” because to be honest, I had no idea if the two went together. The hummus I have is spinach and artichoke. I came across a recipe for roasted cauliflower and broccoli to be dipped in hummus, so I tried it. Let me tell you, it is amazing!

  1. That sounds delicious! I’ll have to try it. I’m a big fan of baby carrots and hummus or peanut butter. I also love kale chips, although that’s a better snack for home than work (so you can brush your teeth after).

    If you’re on the go, I love grabbing a Kind bar.

    1. First Laura, thank you for commenting and allowing me to catch that I spelled hummus wrong in the entire post, so I just edited that!
      Second, can you believe I had never tried hummus until a few weeks ago?! Now I am addicted. 2-3 months ago I tried kale chips for the first time and I liked those too.

      What is a Kind bar?
