Cauliflower is much more than you know read…
Bring home this bundle to your loveone and see how they react. Tell them it is cause your heart cares for theirs. I was recently at a womens health fair about screenings for womens heart. It was very informative and had some great food presentations. I went to a food presentation with a Chef named Jeff who has been a chef of Kettering Medical Center for over 20 some years. Amazing how this is but he informed something about this flower plant that was very very interesting. First the species Brassica oleracea in the genus Brassica, which is in the family Brassicaceae. It is an annual plant that reproduces by seed. Typically, only the head is eaten — the edible white flesh sometimes called “curd”
Chef Jeff prepared a cuisine that had cauliflower replacing rice. All you have to do is process it then let it dry and you have a very healthy alternative.
I went on to check out Whole Foods who along with Fitness Professional Lifestyle Association found in research studies that cauliflower is let alone picked as one of the World’s healthiest food gathered for a large-scale study called the European Prospective Investigation into Cancer and Nutrition (EPIC) has shown cauliflower to be an especially popular cruciferous vegetable in 10 western European countries, tying for first place with cabbage for the vegetable consumed most frequently. Here is how cauliflower stacked up against other cruciferous vegetables as a percentage of all vegetables eaten:cauliflower (25%); white cabbage (13%), and cabbage “unspecified” (12%). It is also interesting to compare cauliflower with broccoli in the study findings since cauliflower accounted for a greater percentage of total vegetable consumption than broccoli (18%).
