Cauliflower and Weight Loss

How Cauliflower Can Help You Lose Weight

Cauliflower wasn't always the sexiest piece of produce in the crisper, but since realising what this versatile veg can do, it's been a staple in our fridges. If you're trying to lose weight, here's why you need a head of this white cruciferous vegetable ready to go at all times.

It's low in carbs: One of the reasons we've majorly fallen for cauliflower is because of its low carb count. It easily subs in seamlessly for so many of our favourite comfort foods like fried rice, mac and cheese, and even pizza.
