Don’t like the cauliflower ‘bhaji’ your mom gives you for ‘dabba’? Attentio! Your mom’s cooked bhaji can indeed help you meet recommendations in the 2010 dietary guidelines from the US department of Health and Human Services that recommends an intake of at least 2.5 servings of vegetables per day.Cauliflower being closely related to Broccoli, Cabbage and Brussel sprouts, can be a very good alternative to your otherwise green vegetables. And not just that, it can also aid you in weight control, now that size zero is in vogue!
A cup of raw cauliflower has only 27 calories and it is also a brilliant hunger masher! Complimenting a low carb diet, this little floral arrangement can be your route to happiness.
Also, each cup of cauliflower provides approx. 2g of dietary fiber and about 52 mg of vitamin C- while the former helps in lowering your cholesterol and reduce constipation, the later helps in building bones and is a strong antioxidant that is essential for healing and immune functions.
So, eat that Bhaji will you? It’s good for you!
