Cauliflower Nutrition, Recipes & Health Benefits

Are you going to the grocery store this weekend? Don’t forget to pick up this week’s Produce Challenge Calendar items! Among the list: Cauliflower! It’s a Produce Mom favorite because it’s great as a raw veggie which means no cooking necessary… and that is always good for a busy mom!

When selecting Cauliflower from the produce section you should choose one that feels firm, heavy and compact. The heads should be a creamy white color and the leaves should look fresh.

White is the most common color, however, it comes in orange, green and purple as well! There’s no harm in trying them all and finding your favorite! 😉

When you get your cauliflower home, make sure you store it UNWASHED in the “crispier” section of your refrigerator for up to ten days. Wash right before eating.

Like I mentioned before, Cauliflower is great as a raw veggie, however, it tastes great cooked too! Before cooking, cut into smaller, similar sizes, to make sure it all cooks evenly.
