Fit To Be Tried 3 – Cauliflower

Fit To Be Tried 3

Cauliflower:

Move over, kale. While hardly a kitchen newcomer, cauliflower is rapidly becoming the veggie in healthy culinary circles, gaining favor as a baker, mashed, or roasted replacement for starchy carbs such as potatoes. It is also being used in pizza crust and even paella.

Cauliflower is fairly bland but can take on almost any flavor. Once you mash it up, it is similar in taste and color to potatoes. One cup of cauliflower can supply up to 80% of your daily-recommended vitamin C intake and is also high in antioxidants but low in calories (30 per cup). Plus with three grams of fiber per cup, it can help you feel fuller longer. Try it with some coconut oil, grated cheese, and sea salt for a delicious dish that is sure to please.
