Cauliflower is a cruciferous vegetable (same family as cabbage, kale and broccoli); it’s an excellent source of vitamin C, vitamin K, and folate. It is also a good source of vitamin B5, potassium, dietary fibre, iron and other B vitamins. The nutrients cauliflower provides support three body systems that are closely connected to cancer prevention; these three systems are) the body's detox system, its antioxidant system, and its inflammatory/anti-inflammatory system. 
If you want to receive Cauliflower’s fantastic health benefits you should eat it on a regular basis around 2-3 times per week, and make the serving size at least 1-1/2 cups.
