10 Amazing Paleo Cauliflower Recipes!
Ah the humble cauliflower. Who knew this round brain-looking vegetable was packed full of amazing health benefits. Most people just whip it out at Christmas to make cauliflower cheese or some other side dish that’s always leftover. I used to think that that was it’s primary purpose up until a few years ago when I decided to sort my life out and go paleo. The more research I did on the cauliflower, the more astounded I became at what it actually does to your body. Not only is it rich in vitamins and minerals, but cauliflower contains sulforaphane, a sulfur compound that has been shown to kill cancer cells, thereby slowing tumour growth. It’s anti-inflammatory, boosts heart health, helps your body detoxify, has digestive benefits, can go get your shopping, wash your car and win you the lottery. In fact, eating cauliflower is actually like winning the antioxidant and phytonutrient lottery! It’s packed with vitamin C and a bunch of other important micronutrients, and as long as you have these, you body will be able to resist ageing caused by your everyday exposure to pollutants, chronic stress and much more! So basically eating cauliflower will make you younger. Okay it probably won’t actually make you younger, but eating enough of it will definitely make you look and feel younger for a lot longer.
Anyway, when I decided to add the oh so mighty cauliflower into my diet, I had absolutely no idea what to do with it. But I soon learned that adding to its appeal the cauliflower is extremely versatile. You can eat it raw, add it to salads or season it and turn it into a healthier version of mashed potato.
