Spiced Cauliflower Salad with Pomegranate

By: Claire Georgiou, Reboot Naturopath, B.HSc ND

Cauliflower is a great versatile vegetable that is delicious, light and high in fiber. One cup of this cruciferous vegetable offers 25 calories, 2.5g of fiber, 5g of carbohydrate and 50mg of vitamin C. Pomegranate seeds offer really potent antioxidants such as punicalagins and punicic acid. While pomegranates might be intimidating to de-seed, here’s a technique that can help you.
