Cauliflower has come a loooong way from the days of just chucking it in a mixed salad. It now shows off in everything from fried rice to cauliflower steaks (yes, it’s actually a thing). The good — no, great — news is that it’s good for you. Like, one of the healthiest foods you can enjoy.

Cauliflower has tons of glucosinolates, which contain sulfur. Glucosinlates help almost every system in the body, including cardiovascular and digestive.

Gluscosinolates and antioxidants work hand in hand. Cauliflower has super high levels of Vitamin C and Magnesium, which helps with your metabolism.

There’s more good news. Studies have shown cauliflower decreases the risk of colon and prostate cancers, obesity and heart problems.

That makes you want to dish up some cauliflower, doesn’t it? Mmmmhmm. Stay tuned because we have some great cauliflower recipes for you.
