Nutrient Boosters: Cauliflower, Carrots & Potatoes
Cauliflower seems to be the new “it” when it comes to eating veggies. From cauliflower mash to cauliflower rice and even cauliflower gnocchi, this cruciferous vegetable is so much more than the latest trend. Cauliflower is an excellent source of vitamins and minerals and contains impressive amounts of fiber which aids in digestive health. What’s more, it contains high amounts of Vitamin C, which is important for protecting the immune system, especially during the colder months. Vitamin C is also known for it’s anti-inflammatory effects that not only can boost immune health but also reduce the risk of heart disease and cancer. Eat it raw, steam it, or roast it, cauliflower makes a fantastic and nutritious addition to almost any dish.
Carrots are often claimed to be the perfect health food and we claim them to be the perfect addition to this delicious recipe. This root vegetable is a good source of several vitamins and minerals, especially vitamin A, biotin, vitamin K, potassium and vitamin B6. Carrots contain many plant compounds, but the carotenoids are by far the most well-known. These substances have powerful antioxidant properties and have been shown to reduce the risk of cancer and heart disease as well as improve eye health.
Did you know that potatoes are more energy-packed than almost any other vegetable and contain even more potassium than a banana? They can help control blood sugar as they are a resistant starch. Studies have shown that potatoes and other resistant starches can reduce insulin resistance in those with type 2 diabetes.
Roast Once, Eat Twice
The best part about cooking a whole roasted chicken is that there’s bound to be lots of leftovers! The leftover meat is perfect when shredded and served in tacos, soups or salads. And leftover vegetables make a delicious addition to many of our main meals. These veggies pair well with our Black Sesame Seed Encrusted Salmon, Black Bean Burgers and Almond Crusted Chicken.
