Cauliflower is an extremely healthy vegetable that’s a significant source of nutrients. Eat it raw, cooked, roasted, baked into a pizza crust or cooked and mashed as a substitute for mashed potatoes. You can even prepare cauliflower rice as a substitute for regular rice. It also contains unique plant compounds that may reduce the risk of several diseases, including heart disease and cancer. Additionally, it’s weight loss friendly and incredibly easy to add to your diet. When it comes to nutrition, cauliflower is high in vitamin C and a good source of folate. One cup of raw cauliflower provides over 75% of the daily minimum target for vitamin C. It is also fat free and cholesterol free and also is low in sodium content.
Cauliflower has a high fiber content, and one cup of it cooked has about 10 percent of the recommended daily amount of fiber. Diets rich in fiber can help prevent constipation, and promote bulkier, softer stools that are easier to pass through the digestive systems. These beneficial effects not only make life more comfortable but also help maintain colorectal health.
With cauliflower's low caloric content, it's a great choice for those trying to lose weight. You can substantially cut down on calories and carbohydrates when choosing cauliflower, while adding in extra fiber to help keep you full. Plus, over 90% of cauliflower is made up of water which can help hydrate the body.
