Eat the rainbow is definitely good advice when comes to eating your produce, but remember, just because a veggie is white doesn’t mean it’s not nutritious! Cauliflower, the cloud of your produce rainbow, is still loaded with nutrition. Cauliflower is an excellent source of potassium and it’s a good source of fiber, with about 3g of fiber per cup. Cauliflower and other white veggies, such as parsnips and mushrooms, are also rich in a phytochemical called anthoxanthin. Research so far shows that this phytochemical can help with improve heart health, reduce risk of cancer and stroke, and reduce inflammation.
