Learn to Love: Cauliflower

With all this talk about eating colorful fruits and veggies, pale cauliflower often gets left out in the cold. Just because it lacks color doesn't mean you should neglect this veggie.


First off, cauliflower is in season from December to March, so it should be easy to find a nice head of it at your grocery store. Plus, seasonal produce tends to be less expensive.

Secondly, one cup of cauliflower contains 91 percent the recommended daily intake (RDI) of vitamin C. That is nothing to scoff at, especially if you don't enjoy drinking OJ. One cup also contains over three grams of fiber.

Cauliflower is considered a cruciferous vegetable, placing it in the same family as broccoli and kale. Cruciferous veggies may help prevent cancer, and they are known to reduce the risk of lung, colon, breast, ovarian and bladder cancers. This class of veggies, cauliflower included, also benefit the liver and the cardiovascular system. The reasons to love cauliflower are plentiful!
