Cauliflower has brain power

Did you know that Cauliflower is good for the brain?

Eating cauliflower can help boost energy and efficiency in your frontal lobe. This is the region in the brain that is responsible for memory, and decision making.

Here is a great way to eat cauliflower and also a good substitute for mashed potatoes:

Mashed Cauliflower

1 head of cauliflower, cut into florets
2 t butter
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 c milk
1/4 t crushed red pepper
salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1. Steam the cauliflower for 10 minutes until very tender.
2. In a medium saucepan over medium heat, add the butter and garlic.
3. Once the garlic becomes fragrant, add the milk, red pepper, salt, pepper, tender cauliflower and mix until combined.
4. Mash with an immersion blender.
5. Enjoy!
