Cauliflower is packed with vitamin C! One head of cauliflower meets 378%, or about 283 milligrams, of your vitamin C needs for the day. The Recommended Dietary Allowance is 75–90 milligrams per day.
Vitamin C is needed to make collagen in the body. It’s also a powerful antioxidant involved with protein metabolism. Studies also show that vitamin C may lower the risk of some cancers, reduce the risk of cardiovascular disease, and slow the progression of age-related macular degeneration.
This dish is also high in fiber and potassium and low in calories, which can contribute to quicker satiety for people who want to lose weight.
