Recipe

First, a HUGE THANK YOU for all the positive and excited responses to the Slender Kitchen meal plans I shared yesterday. It is something I have been excited about sharing for months and am so happy it is finally off the ground. Meal planning truly changed everything for me when it came to really sticking to a diet and losing weight. This is exactly why I wanted to start creating meal plans to share.

And now for today’s recipe. I don’t know if there is anyone out there who doesn’t enjoy a delicious, cheesy, Alfredo sauce but the average sauce has over 10 points plus plus. However since I was craving Alfredo, I started the inevitable internet search for a lighter version and came across a brilliant idea cauliflower. By using cauliflower in place of most of the cream and butter you can create a delicious, creamy Alfredo sauce with 70% less calories. I recommend making some as soon as possible. Also with this recipe, the better the Parmesan, the better the sauce will taste, so it is worth it to spend a little extra.
