Food of the Week: Cauliflower

17 Apr

Cauliflower is rich in vitamins K, C, B6, folate, magnesium, omega 3 and fiber. It also contains sulforaphane, a substance that has been found to reduce the risk for cancer and heart disease. Cauliflower aids in the production of antibodies and hemoglobin and it’s protective against allergies and asthma.

You can substitute mashed potatoes for mashed cauliflower. Simply cook the cauliflower and add a little olive oil and sea salt. This is a delicious and healthier alternative.
