Cauliflower, the Most Versatile Veggie, and Collagen
Versatile, cheap, and packed with nutrients, cauliflower is the MVP of the vegetable world. Cauliflower is so versatile, in fact, that it has become something of a celebrity in the world of health and dieting. Can we really be talking about the same white veggie we grew up avoiding at the dinner table? What’s so great about cauliflower and why should you add it to your food repertoire?
Cauliflower is a fall vegetable but it is generally available year-round in the produce section of any grocery store. The main reason to eat more cauliflower is for the nutrient value it contains. Cauliflower is a good source of potassium and protein, making it filling. It also contains quite a bit of calcium, magnesium, and iron. When it comes to vitamins, cauliflower is chock full of vitamins C and B-6. Okay, so, obviously cauliflower is good for you. But that isn’t the reason it’s so popular.
Cauliflower is extraordinarily adaptable as a carb replacement. For low-carb diets, cauliflower can be used to replace mashed potatoes and rice through different preparation methods. It can also be used to create low-carb pizza crust so, obviously, it is the hero of people who love pizza and are avoiding carbohydrates. As strange as those recipes might sound, cauliflower takes on the flavors that are added to it so it is often just as good as the higher-carb option. However, carbs aren’t the only things cauliflower can replace. It is also often used in place of chicken for certain recipes such as buffalo wings and stir fry. Cauliflower can be used in numerous healthy and delicious recipes.
Clearly, cauliflower is a great way to stick to healthy food choices while still getting some of the major nutrients you need. Plus, you can make your low-carb diet even better by adding Traditional Tonic Nourishing Collagen to your cauliflower recipes. Traditional Tonic contains protein and amino acids your body can use to fuel your activities and repair your muscles. Plus, collagen supports whole-body health from nails to joints. These two dietary superstars pair perfectly together.
