Cauliflower the New Kale

Is Cauliflower the new Kale?

Cauliflower the New Kale

According to Kathy Smart- North American’s Gluten Free Expert, kale is no longer the #1 it food. It has been replaced graciously by cauliflower, another powerhouse vegetable.

Full of Vitamin C, fibre and known for its abilities to be an antioxidant,  detoxifier, and its anti- inflammatory properties, it is no wonder that this insignificant cruciferous veggie has taken over for kale.

Whether you like it steamed with cheese sauce or roasted on the bbq, incorporating more cauliflower into your diet will do you good.
