Cauliflower is an amazingly nutritious veggie. It has amazing cancer-fighting properties that should make it a staple in all diets. Today, I am bringing you some of my favorite low carb cauliflower recipes that I made myself and some from awesome blogger friends.
Healthy Benefits of Cauliflower
Cauliflower contains something called sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has been shown to kill cancer stem cells, thereby slowing tumor growth. Also, cauliflower is an essential source of dietary fiber for digestive health. Did you know that high fiber diets are supposed to help lower cholesterol?
Most of us need more nutrients in our body to function better. Eating cauliflower regularly is a simple way to get these much-needed nutrients into your body. For instance, one serving of cauliflower contains 77 percent of the recommended daily value of vitamin C. It’s also a good source of vitamin K, protein, thiamin, riboflavin, niacin, magnesium, phosphorus, fiber, vitamin B6, folate, pantothenic acid, potassium, and manganese.

I am not a nutritionist, but I know that cauliflower is a choice I feel good about on my low carb diet.
