Bonus points and benefits come with this appetizer because of its guilt free. If I haven’t sold you on it yet, a list of health benefits follow…

HEALTH BENEFITS

  • Cauliflower focuses on maintaining a healthy digestive system. The fiber and other compounds help regulate the gut’s bacterial growth and benefit the digestive system.
  • Eating spicy foods lowers the risk of a heart attack and stroke. To gain this benefit, choose hot buffalo sauce over mild.
  • Because of the low amount of calories and high fiber and volume, cauliflower promotes weight loss!
  • Studies prove that cauliflower contains sulforaphane which plays a role in protecting the venerable tissues of the retinal area from stress. By preserving your eye health, cauliflower can prevent blindness, cataracts and muscular degeneration.
