Hello Healthy Cauliflower!

Spring is nature’s way of saying, “Let’s party!” -Robin Williams

Such a happy time of year…warm weather, bright flowers, cute outfits and new seasonal fruits and veggies to enjoy! Eating ‘seasonally’ and ‘locally’ is good for the health of the planet AND it’s good for YOU. One of my favorite springtime foods is cauliflower!

People tend to forget about cauliflower. I know, it’s kind of bland. Bright red tomatoes, cheerful yellow squash and dark green spinach get all the attention. They’re all amazing, but did you know that cauliflower is actually a superfood? Plus, it’s super versatile- it can be eaten raw, boiled and mashed (great potato substitute), braised, steamed, panfried, or my personal favorite, roasted!

There are so many health benefits of cauliflower. Did you know that one serving has 77% of your vitamin C needs? It’s loaded with dietary fiber, which aids in healthy digestion. It contains lots of vitamin B (to energize) and K (to fight inflammation). Many studies have shown that diets high in cauliflower help prevent cancer. It’s been shown to boost brain health, improve kidney function, and reduce blood pressure, too.

Cauliflower is the perfect detox food. Light and nourishing… perfect for Spring!

Here’s a quick recipe for roasted broccoli and cauliflower!

    Spring is by far my favorite season – birds chirping, flowers blooming, crazy delicious produce! Cauliflower is one of my favorite vegetables, and I always have a head of it in my fridge, so I am not one of those people who think it’s bland or takes its versatility for granted! Love that you dedicated a post to one of my favorites, girlfriend! And I love that you roasted it! SO delicious!! I could eat a bowl of this and call it dinner! Cheers and Happy (almost) Easter weekend! <3
