Cauliflower, cauliflower, cauliflower. I have never been a big cauliflower fan…well, until now. Now I really LOVE it. I didn’t realize how versatile this little nutritious vegetable is!
I had some cauliflower left over and felt like something quick and crunchy for dinner, so I made some crunchy cauliflower florets. They turned out great! If you are looking for a tasty and figure friendly side dish, try out this recipe!
Did you know that cauliflower is a good source of Vitamin C, it’s an anti-inflammatory, and great for your digestive system?
The tumeric is one of my favourite spices I think. Besides adding some nice colour to your dish I is considered as a healing spice in Ayurveda. Turmeric comes from the root of the Curcuma which is then ground. In general, turmeric tastes a little warm and peppery with a mild fragrance. It is best known as one of the main ingredients of a curry spice mixture.
Tumeric is known as an anti-flammatory, successful in fighting cancers and metatases as well as a relief for rheumatoid arthritis. It lower cholesterol levels and help to improve the liver function. As it is.
Remember, there is a difference between simple consumption and full-absorption. In oder to optimize all the super beneficial functions of turmeric make sure to have it cooked with fat. Why?
Turmeric is fat-soluble, that means it dissolves in fat. Without fat, the active component in turmeric, curcumin, has a difficult time making it past the stomach. As it is so beneficial I try to add it to my meals. It goes well with eggs, avocado or in smooties together with a little bit of oil.
