Cauliflower is one vegetable that deserves a regular rotation in your diet as it contains an impressive array of nutrients, including vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and other phytochemicals. Adding to cauliflower’s appeal is its extreme versatility. You can eat it raw, add it to salads, or use it in your cooking. Cauliflower can even be seasoned and mashed for a healthier version of “mashed potatoes”.
Because of its beneficial effects on numerous aspects of health, cauliflower can easily be described as a superfood. It is a member of the cancer-fighting cruciferous family of vegetables and is an anti-inflammatory and antioxidant-rich, and may boost both your heart and brain health. Eating cauliflower will provide your body with impressive amounts of vitamin C, vitamin k, beta-carotene, and much more while supporting healthy digestion and detoxification.
Frost Valley has produced over 90 pounds of cauliflower this year at the educational farm. All of which is used in the meals served in the Thomas Dining Hall and at East Valley Ranch.
