Cauliflower is low in calories yet high in vitamins and minerals. One cup contains only 25 calories and has 3 grams of fiber!
Why is cauliflower good for weight loss? Consuming lots of water dense low calorie foods is associated with effective weight loss. Cauliflower is about 92% water.
We also like some of the new colored Cauliflowers for this recipe. Orange, Purple & Green Cauliflower (aka Broccoflower) will also work for this recipe. Pairing this with our Roasted Chicken recipe makes for an easy weeknight or weekend dinner.
If you are on the Weight Loss Program with Dr. Sheila Hughes we suggest having this with 3-4 ounces of lean protein for a perfect size lunch or dinner. Roast Chicken, Grilled Salmon or Scallops would be a great choice. For a little kick of flavor adding in a bit of wasabi can be fun!
