Cauliflower Nutrition

If you thought that high concentrations of vitamin C can only be found in oranges and other citrus fruits, you thought wrong.

Check out Brassica oleracea and BOOM, you just got 497% of your daily dose of vitamin C. Cauliflower is also a superb source of potassium. Skip the oranges and bananas post workout, and roast, boil, steam, or just eat raw, some of this nutritionally dense vegetable.

  • Cut off stem
  • Separate the florets
  • Wash florets well

Eating cauliflower isn’t rocket science. Some simple cooking preparation techniques include:

  • Raw: It’s a truly dippable vegetable. Ranch dressing or hummus – whatever you want, just dip and eat.
  • Steam it: Great way to maintain the nutritional integrity of vegetable. Takes 5-10 minutes.
  • Boil it: Drop it the pot for just 5 – 10 minutes.
  • Roast it: At 400F, bake it in your oven for 20-25 minutes.
  • Mash it: It’s kinda like making mashed potatoes, just a whole lot healthier.
