As usual, I’m posting a recipe that my wife, in her constant culinary exploration, has discovered.  She’s constantly experimenting with healthy recipes and this was one of my favorites.  It’s a great snack food.  It’s easy to make, high bulk, and low calorie.  Feel free to get creative and experiment with different spices.  Enjoy!
