Should Cauliflower Be Cooked or Eaten Raw?
Dr. David Jockers not only provided the basic structure for this yummy recipe, but he also shares some incredible health info about cauliflower:
- If you have thyroid problems it is best to consume the cauliflower slightly steamed to remove any unwanted goitrogens.
- If you have major leaky gut syndrome than it is also best to lightly steam the cauliflower as it is easier on the digestive system.
- If you have cancer it is best to consume the cauliflower raw to maximize enzyme content as well as powerful anti-carcinogens in the form of sulfuraphane, phenyl isothiocyanates and indole-3 carbonyl. Raw cauliflower contains signicantly more of these nutrients than steamed cauliflower.
