"People think about staying away from white-colored foods, but cauliflower is the exception," says Sheth. While it doesn't often get the praise its relative broccoli gets, it's worthy of it. Both come from the same cruciferous family of vegetables and are well-known for their anti-inflammatory properties. Often thought of as a cooler-weather veggie, cauliflower is ripe for the picking in a number of states this month, offering possible protection against cancer and stroke.
How To Enjoy: Beside enjoying it raw with a little dip, Sheth suggests using it as a low-calorie substitute for potatoes, either baked or mashed. Or try roasting it with some Indian spices such as turmeric, she says, with some garbanzo beans for protein and fiber.
