Cauliflower is great for paleo eating because it’s:

  • High in fiber and micronutrients
  • Easier to digest than it’s cousin – brussels sprouts
  • Low in carbs – 5 grams of carbs per cup (if you care about that sort of thing)

Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable sharing the family Brassicaceae with cabbage, bok choy, broccoli and others. The alternate family name – Cruciferae – refers to the flowers being shaped like a cross.

Cruciferous vegetables can be hard to digest for some folks, but if you tolerate them well, then here’s three delicious recipes for you to savor!
