When your life is full of doctor’s appointments and sick days, it can get tiring trying to find recipes, food and other nourishment that make your days easier.
For me, it has taken a while to find just the right something that helps with the redness that breaks out on my face during a flare-up or a perfected simple, yet tasty recipe that takes basically none of my energy after the end of a long work day.
This recipe is my go-to when I have no energy to cook dinner. My sister-in-law first introduced me to cauliflower soup at a family dinner, and it changed my dinner game. (see recipe)
Cauliflower, a cruciferous vegetable, has a plethora of health benefits that are key to anyone’s diet. According to Cancer.gov, cruciferous vegetables are “rich in nutrients, including several carotenoids (beta-carotene, lutein, zeaxanthin); vitamins C, E, and K; folate; and minerals. They also are a good fiber source.” Cauliflower contains glucosinolates, and when this type of vegetable is consumed, they are broken down into biologically active compounds that have been examined for their anticancer possibilities.
Cauliflower also contains a good source of potassium, as well as the majority of recommended daily Vitamin C intake – which promotes skin and brain health.

2 heads of cauliflower
Bring the cauliflower and chicken stock to a boil in the large pot. Once the cauliflower is cooked and tender, remove from the fire and use the immersion blender to puree the cauliflower.
Season with spices, salt and pepper. I also top with cheddar cheese after it’s cooked. This recipe is super easy to customize, and it’s extremely healthy as well.
