There are 8 health benefits to eating cauliflower which are the following: Cancer Prevention, A diet high in cruciferous vegetables such as cauliflower has been linked to a significant reduction in the risk of cancer, especially prostate cancer, breast cancer, colon cancer, ovarian cancer, and bladder cancer. 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. Antioxidant, 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. 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. 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. Lastly, 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.

You can also boil cauliflower and mash it into a healthier version of mashed potatoes (Eat This Publish 2011).
