Healthy Eating — Cauliflower

  • A single cup of white cauliflower contains almost an entire day’s supply of vitamin C, and it’s also a good source of vitamins B and K and folate (which help strengthen bones).
  • Cauliflower is rich in sulfur-producing compounds –hence its pungent aroma when cooked. Foods containing these compounds help rid your body of carcinogens, which is why eating cauliflower has been linked to a reduced risk of breast, cervical, and lung cancers. (p.88)
