Why Your Should Eat More Cauliflower + Cauliflower Nutrition 101

  1. As a member of the cruciferous veggie family, cauliflower contains potential anti-cancer compounds called glucosinolates. Although studies to date have been mixed, some research has shown a reduced risk of prostate, colorectal, lung, and breast cancers with greater intakes of cruciferous vegetables.
  2. Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, pantothenic acid, and vitamin B6, plus it’s a good source of fiber to help promote digestive health. As an added bonus, because cauliflower, and other cruciferous veggies, are rich in sulforaphane, they may help kill H. Pylori, the bacteria responsible for peptic ulcers and most gastric cancers.
  3. Not only should you EAT THE RAINBOW, you also should be eating THE CLOUDS! These are the humble “superfoods”, including onions, shallots, mushrooms, and CAULIFLOWER that are a delicious and inexpensive way for you to boost the nutrient value of your meals.
  4. Cauliflower is a blank slate {taste wise}, ready and waiting for you to put your culinary genius to work! Need ideas to get those creative juices flowing? Let’s get straight to the recipes!

Thanks so much for my registered dietitian and healthy food blogger friends for sharing their delicious recipes and photos! All of the recipes are gluten-free, plus you will find lots of options for every taste and diet, including vegan {noted with a V}, vegetarian {noted with Veg}, low carb, and paleo. Enjoy!
