Cauliflower Drumsticks

     If you don't follow Gina at Skinnytaste (, you are really missing out!  She has tons of healthy meal ideas.  Such was the case with this recipe, I just lover her style and had fun mixing in  a few of my little twists.  Each of the 8 servings (1 Drumsticks and 1 cup veggies) are only 150 calories, 5.5g net carbs and 13g protein.  Expand your repertoire, try this out and then check out all she has to offer for the other nights of the week!  Yeah for Cauliflower Drumsticks!
