This is one of our favorite cleansing recipes from our 6-day online healthRESET detox program. Cauliflower makes an amazing substitute for regular bulgur wheat, allowing this recipe to stay gluten-free, and high in beneficial phytonutrients. Cauliflowers are cruciferous vegetables that contain compounds, called glucosinolates that can be converted by digestion and microbial action in the gut to derivative indoles, thiocyanates and isothiocyanates. These biologically active derivatives are known to prevent cancer, reduce inflammation, improve estrogen metabolism (important for men, as well as women), and support detoxification.
Other cruciferous veggies to look out for include arugula, bok choi, broccoli, Brussel Sprouts, cabbage, collard greens, kale, mustard greens, radish, turnip and watercress.
