Because no single way of eating works for everybody.
If you have a prostate, or you care about someone who does, you’ll probably want to read this. Far as that goes, if you’ve got intestines and an immune system, you’ll want to read this too. And if you’re breathing… oh, just go ahead and read on, please. 🙂
The above picture is of a cauliflower. Okay, it’s an orange cauliflower, but that’s because I like the colour. It could just as easily be a white cauliflower.
What does cauliflower have to do with prostates, the intestines and immune system, and curry? It’s kind of a three-cornered question – and here’s the three-cornered answer:
Part One: Researchers at Rutgers University have discovered that cauliflower and turmeric, eaten together, are useful in preventing prostate cancer. Read about why in this article.
Part Two: Cruciferous vegetables – such as cauliflower – have been shown to express genes that act in the intestines and boost the human immune system. Read about how it works in this article.
Part Three: Cauliflower tastes great with curry spices, including turmeric!
I suggest the following recipe, for your continued good health. This way of eating cauliflower and turmeric is really easy, and absolutely delicious. Even my cauliflower-hating son has liked it since he was little. It’s an adaptation of a recipe devised by a good friend of ours. I hope you, and all your applicable body parts, will enjoy it!
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1 to 2 teaspoons turmeric
1 to 2 teaspoons cumin
1 to 2 teaspoons black mustard seed (or plain mustard seed if black is not available)
1 teaspoon salt
1. Wash and dry cauliflower and separated into florets.
2. Place cauliflower in a large bowl, drizzle with olive oil, and toss until coated.
3. Repeat with spices and salt. Toss well to coat. Adjust quantities of spices and salt if it looks like more are needed.
4. Place on baking sheet or in baking dish. Roast, uncovered, at 400°F for half an hour or until cauliflower is golden brown, turning halfway through. Serve and enjoy.
