Cauliflower is one of those unique vegetables that may give you multiple health benefits, including reducing the risk of heart disease, cancer and diabetes. Cauliflower is low calorie, weight loss-friendly and very easy to eat daily in your diet.
Cauliflower brings a high nutrition profile to the dinner table, with lots of fiber, Vitamin C, Vitamin K, Vitamin B6, folate, potassium, pantothenic acid, manganese, magnesium and phosphorus, which is literally more nutrients than most single vegetables can deliver.
One cup or 128 grams of raw cauliflower has just 28 calories while giving you almost every vitamin and mineral that your body needs.
On the anti-inflammation side of things, cauliflower has properties similar to other cruciferous family members, delivering antioxidants like glucosinolates and isothiocyanates. Studies have shown that these two chemicals have anti-cancer growth properties.
