It has become one of my favorite vegetables – cauliflower. Cauliflower is naturally high in fiber, water and vitamins. The fiber enhances weight loss and supports the digestion. A higher fiber intake is beneficial when suffering from high blood pressure or cholesterol levels.
The vitamins you find in cauliflower include vitamin B6, which supports your metabolism and the creation of red blood cells; vitamin C, an antioxidant that can protect against cancer; and vitamin K being a group of compounds that the body needs for helping wounds to heal and for bone and heart health.
Additional supplements are folate, a vitamin B; pantothenic acid, which is vitamin B5; and then potassium, which is a mineral and also an electrolyte.
Other ingredients include manganese, a mineral for the functioning of your brain, the nervous system and many of your body's enzyme systems.
And there is magnesium, which regulates your muscle and nerve function, your blood sugar levels, and also your blood pressure, and it supports the making of protein, bone matter and DNA. Phosphorus is beneficial for each cell in your body, your kidneys, blood vessels, muscles, and bones.
I personally use cauliflower as a substitute to rice. To do so, I cut the cauliflower into very tiny pieces until it almost looks like rice, easiest done with the help of a food processor. Then I cook the “cauliflower rice” for some minutes until it becomes soft and afterwards I flavor it with sea salt and black or red pepper powder, garlic or different herbs. Enjoy this wonderful side dish for a healthy meal, for it is a true power vegetable.
