Cauliflower: The Smart Choice


Food for thought:


Did you know cauliflower is one of the most nutrient rich and beneficial vegetables for brain health?



Probably not on the top favorite foods list, cauliflower tends to leave a bad taste in one's mouth when mentioned. Despite its somewhat distinct smell, cauliflower in its raw form tastes fairly bland. But what cauliflower lacks in spice, it makes up for in nutrition. Cauliflower can be added to many dishes for texture and color, as well as increased nutrient value.






Cauliflower is packed with sulforaphane, a phytonutrient that improves the immune system, heart, blood and brain function. Sulforaphane triggers the production of detoxifying enzymes within the body, making it a powerful anti-cancer agent. Cauliflower contains vitamins A, C, E and K, folate, and potassium, among other important nutrients. It is also a good source of choline, which acts as a vital neurotransmitter for optimal brain health and function.
