Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable that is naturally high in fiber and B-vitamins. It provides antioxidants and phytonutrients that can protect against cancer.

It also contains fiber to enhance weight loss and digestion, choline that is essential for learning and memory, and many other important nutrients.
