10 Super Healthy Snacks Even Diabetics Can Have

COURTESY CHARMAINE JONES

Ranch cauliflower bites

Cauliflower has many similarities to its other colorful cruciferous cousin, broccoli. It’s a good source of fiber and just one cup provides 75 percent of daily recommended amount of vitamin C. These delicious bites are created by Charmaine Jones, MS, RDN, LDN, founder of Food Jonezi.

Ingredients:

  • 1 large head of cauliflower
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 packet ranch seasoning mix
  • 1/2 cup low-fat shredded sharp cheese (plus some to sprinkle on top of bites)
  • 1 teaspoon chives

Directions: Preheat oven to 375°F. Pulse cauliflower in a food processor until it forms large crumbs or looks like snow. Place cauliflower in a towel and wring out any excess water; cauliflower should be dry as possible. Pour cauliflower in a large bowl. Add eggs, 1/2 cup cheese, ranch dressing, and chives. Take out a non-stick muffin tray and fill each one about 2/3 full. Top with a sprinkle of cheese. Bake for about 20 minutes or until lightly golden. Garnish with chives.
