Print Friendly 

Description:
How simple is this make and it is such a great way to use these amazing veggies.

Broccoli and cauliflower are members of the cruciferous family of vegetables that includes cabbage, turnips, rutabaga, kale, bok choy, Brussels sprouts and mustard greens. The nutritional value of broccoli and cauliflower combined with its low calories make these vegetables a must have on any healthy eating plan.
There is a high level of vitamin C in broccoli. Broccoli is also packed with vitamin A, beta carotene, B vitamins especially B3 and B5, folic acid, phosphorus, potassium, iron, chromium, which is an easily absorbed form of calcium, zinc and lots of fiber. It's also loaded with carotenoids - antioxidants that are thought to help with weight loss.

Cauliflower is at its best from December through March when it is in season and most plentiful in your local markets. Cauliflower contains allicin, which can improve heart health and reduce the risk of strokes, and selenium, a chemical that works well with Vitamin C to strengthen the immune system. Cauliflower can also help to maintain a healthy cholesterol level.

Salt and pepper (add to taste)

Wellness Tip
Vegetarian Diets and Iron
Are you a vegetarian or mostly a vegetarian? Dieticians recommends consuming plenty of iron rich plant foods such as lentils, kidney beans and black beans, and whole grains. Iron-enriched products such as cereals and breads are also good sources. To enhance iron absorption, consume vitamin C rich foods too. These include orange juice, green peppers, tomatoes, potatoes, and broccoli. By following these simple guidelines, most non-meat eaters will get enough iron.
