Cauliflower, cousin of broccoli, is a cruciferous vegetable that has been cultivated since 600 BC! It’s no wonder, as it’s loaded with a ton of vitamins and has a satisfying crunchy texture. The florets, or the white tree-like top, are the most commonly eaten part of the cauliflower. However, some people love to eat and cook with the stems!
This vegetable is jam-packed with essential vitamins and nutrients, like vitamin C and manganese. It’s great for supporting the body’s immune response. Not only that, but cauliflower also has a whopping 9 grams of fibre per 100 calories, making it great for digestive system support.
There are tons of ways to incorporate cauliflower into a healthy meal plan. It can be eaten raw, in a salad, or - if you’re feeling adventurous - pureed with spices and made into a delicious, healthy soup! At Fresh Fit Foods, we like to make our dinners packed with protein and vegetables. That’s why we pair a lot of meals with our signature Cauli-Smash, a delicious take on mashed potatoes!
