We often see “skinny” recipes on Pinterest, and think “bull shit.” So we were so glad when EPF reader Jackie from Atlanta, GA sent us this one that she tried featuring a frequent skinny recipe ingredient – cauliflower. The original pin:

Oh, well. You can still drink out of the glasses, so that’s probably all that really matters!
