Cauliflower is great for digestive health as it contains dietary fibre and is packed with antioxidants and phytonutrients. It can boost your brain health as it contains choline, a B vitamin known for brain development. Your gut bacteria will love it too and it can help protect the lining of your stomach. This is a scrumptious alternative to potatoes.
