Golden Roasted Cauliflower

You guys know I’m a total sweet girl when it comes to snacking, but I’ve got two ladies on my team that are SAVORY BABES ALL THE WAY. We usually create a happy medium, but doing a little bit of both, but lately, it seems like all of our snacking has been team savory. I’m sort of okay with this because it’s gotten me to eat a lot more veggies throughout the day, and this is for sure something that I continue to struggle with even as a healthy food blogger.

This Golden Roasted Cauliflower recipe is perfectly cooked and flavored and if you ask me, just right for a delicious afternoon snack. Not only do I like this recipe because it’s a veggie, but also becuase the main spice is turmeric, which is a spice god. Spice. God. As someone who suffers from depression, anxiety, and my current injury of neck and back problems, turmeric is such an amazing anti-inflammatory spice that helps with all of these issues. Let’s talk turmeric for a second.

Why We’ve Been Loving All Things Turmeric

Turmeric is such an amazing anti-inflammatory spice that not only has amazing flavor and an intense yellow color, but does so much good for the body!

  • Anti-inflammatory
  • Increases antioxidant capacity
  • Lowers risk of heart disease
  • Helps prevent certain cancers
