Further Food Nutritionist Commentary:

An easy roasted veggie recipe is a staple in all kitchens and this one uses cauliflower as the star! The benefits of this vegetable include fighting cancer and boosting heart which is possible by the compound sulforaphane, which has been shown to kill cancer stem cells and improve blood pressure. Cauliflower is also a great source of choline, a B vitamin known for its role in brain development.

Coconut oil offers a neutral taste in flavor but provides maximum health benefits. This oil is a medium chain triglyceride and while it is a saturated fat, it contains mostly lauric acid. Lauric acid is then converted into monolaurin which has anti-viral and bacterial properties.
