Cruciferous vegetables offer great benefits. They provide vitamins, minerals, antioxidants and are rich in sulfur compounds shown to help with collagen formation, protein production and anticancer activity. Also called the cabbage family, they possess a very distinctive smell and taste. Combining cruciferous cauliflower with citrus and other fresh flavors makes a cheery dish. Why not keep a jar full in your frig for an ultra-healthy snack or lunch item!
