The Humble Cauliflower

Cauliflower is a powerful source of antioxidants which we all know are great for eliminating free radicals. Vitamin C and manganese, which are both powerful antioxidants, are packed into the humble cauliflower.  Cauliflower also contains carotenoids and phytonutrients.  Introducing it into your diet can reduce your risk for diseases such as cardiovascular diseases and cancer.

Cauliflower is an anti-inflammatory as it contains high amounts of vitamin K which help decrease inflammation.

A great source of fiber which is essential for digestion. It also is packed with necessary B vitamins.

Cauliflower contains purines, which when broken down by the body, produce uric acid. If you have too much uric acid, you can develop gout, so limit your intake of cauliflower to 4 or 5 servings per week.
