8 Health Benefits of Cauliflower

#Cauliflower is a white, flowering, cruciferous vegetable (other cruciferous vegetables include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, collard greens, cabbage, and bok choy). Vegetables in this family have been found to have a multitude of medicinal benefits.

Here are 8 health benefits of cauliflower that may make you want to include it in your diet on a regular basis.

• Cancer Prevention - A diet high in cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower has been been linked to a significant reduction in the risk of cancer, especially prostate cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, and bladder cancer. One Canadian study found that eating a half cup of cauliflower per day reduced the risk of prostate cancer by 52%.

• Better Digestion - Cauliflower is a great source of dietary fiber, which is essential for optimal digestion. When you get enough fiber in your diet, it helps to keep things moving smoothly through the intestines. Cauliflower also contains a compound called glucoraphin, which protects your stomach and intestines from certain health conditions such as cancer and ulcers.

• Antioxidants - Cauliflower contains a high amount of antioxidants, which are essential for the body's overall health and help to prevent heart disease, cancer, and stroke. Antioxidants are also essential in destroying free radicals that accelerate the signs of aging.

• Anti-Inflammatory - Because of the omega-3 fatty acids and vitamin K in cauliflower, it helps to prevent chronic inflammation that leads to conditions such as arthritis, chronic pain, and certain bowel conditions.

• Pregnancy - Cauliflower provides a good amount of folate (B9), a B vitamin that is necessary for a healthy pregnancy. Folate deficiency in pregnant women can lead to problems such as birth defects and low birth weight.

• B Vitamins - In addition to folate, cauliflower is also loaded with other important B vitamins like niacin, riboflavin, pantothenic acid, and thiamine.

• Heart Health - Cauliflower protects from heart disease in many ways. It contains allicin, which has been found to reduce the occurrence of stroke and heart disease. Additionally, cauliflower can help to lower cholesterol levels in the body.

• Weight Loss - Cauliflower is a great food to include in your diet if you're dieting because it's low in calories and can be used in a variety of ways. Try grating the cauliflower into a "rice" and using it in stir-fries instead of regular rice. You can also boil cauliflower and mash it into a healthier version of mashed potatoes.

Sometimes as a #parent  you have the #parenting  moments some good, some bad, some better than you can ever wish. They make you cry, you heart swell in proudness.  My #son joining the #Marines is one of those times.  Then you youngest daughter writes this that I want to share.  #brother #sister 

I have wanted to say something to my brother Chris for awhile but i never found the right words to do it, you probably wont see this for a while because your gone but someday you will. It did not occur to me that you left because i tried not to think about it. Not until 3-4 days after you did leave it hit me like a school bus on 540. I know that while you were still here, you and me didn'..t have the best relationship, we would always fight and yell at each other 24/7. But now I cant seem to remember why we would fight, I guess it was because it wasn't anything important. I remember anytime you would try to hug me I would yell at you to stop and break free of your locked around me. Also when you were here I would forget about you because I never saw you except for meals. But now everything reminds me of you. I cant walk into your room with bursting into tears. I still cant believe your becoming a Marine!
Mom told me when you were in 8th grade you said that you wanted to be a marine, no one really believed you but look where you are now! I hope when I'm 18 I can follow in your footsteps, maybe not being a marine but not giving up on my dream job even if other people don't believe it. I'm truly honored to call you my big brother!! I cant wait till you come back from boot camp!! My arms will be are wide open when I see you at your graduation!
I love you bro!!!
