Cauliflower or Broccoli?

These two vegetables are always in my list. Why? They are delicious and will give our body the nutrients that we need.
  • Cauliflower is an excellent source of folic acid, which protects against heart disease and birth defects, making it a particularly healthy vegetable. It does provide some vitamin C, so it's a good immune-booster, but the white part is in fact the immature flowering head. Eating some of the tender green leaves closest to the flower will increase the amounts of vitamin C, betacarotene and folic acid that you get.
  • Broccoli is a very rich source of carotenoids, especially betacarotene, which the body converts into vitamin A. Betacarotene and many of the other carotenoids are known to restrict the development and growth of cancer cells, and they play a vital role in the prevention of many types of cancer.
