Part of the cruciferous vegetable group, cauliflower is a refrigerator must-have. It is:
- Rich in antioxidants, notably indole-3-carbinol (I-3-C), which research indicates may help protect against cancers and heart disease.
- A good source of vitamins C and K, fiber and folic acid.
- Low in calories.
- Inexpensive and versatile – eat it raw, steamed, baked, roasted or pureed to make creamy sauces and thicken soups.
If cauliflower (and other cruciferous vegetables) causes you to have gas, try eating yogurt, kefir, or buttermilk regularly (or take probiotic supplements) to boost the friendly bacteria in your colon. You might also try adding lemon juice to your meals, and limiting high-fat foods. These simple steps can reduce bloating and discomfort and help the stomach to empty faster, allowing gas-producing compounds to move more readily into the small intestine.
