Broccoli and Cauliflower are in the same family, both look like small trees, and are two vegetables that pack a serious nutrition punch. Pound for pound, it’s harder to eat anything else that has more nutrients in one serving.
Although cauliflower has fewer calories, carbohydrates and sugars, the amounts for both of these foods is so low that neither one can be discounted. If you look at the image below, broccoli wins out on the strength of its many other nutrients and beats cauliflower in every single similar category.
A source of numerous vitamins and minerals, broccoli is one well-rounded vegetable that everyone should eat every chance they get. There’s not many other superfoods that can stand up to the nutrition value of broccoli.
With that said, both are extremely healthy (although too much of them might give you gas). Cauliflower makes a delicious mashed potatoes substitute, and you can’t go wrong with either one.
