This week’s favorite food was Turmeric Cauliflower. This roasted cauliflower has a great spice mix, including Turmeric. Not only does Turmeric add a bright golden hue, it is also loaded with health benefits. Turmeric contains circumin, which recent studies have shown can help with a range of issues, including Alzheimers, cancer, arthritis, and depression. Cauliflower is a great source of Vitamins C and K and is a cruciferous vegetable, which helps maintain detoxification, cardiovascular, digestive, immune, and inflammatory systems. This pairing is a nutrition powerhouse!
