Welcome to Day 4 of the Healthy Holidays Challenge, powered by Compass One Healthcare!

During the holidays, you can’t escape classic recipes like stuffing and mashed potatoes. Or can you? If you’re preparing the meal or bringing a dish to a gathering, contribute a healthy (yet delicious) substitute.

Cauliflower is a versatile, low-carb, low-calorie vegetable that works well in a variety of “traditional” dishes. It can boost your intestinal health and is a fantastic source of fiber, folate, vitamin C, and potassium. Studies show that cauliflower contains antioxidant properties that help protect against diseases like cancer and heart disease. Try these traditional holiday dishes that substitute cauliflower!
