Cauliflower is a member of the cruciferous family of vegetables, often overshadowed by its green cousin broccoli.  This brain-looking vegetable is a good source of choline, a B vitamin known for its role in brain development. Vitamins in cauliflower may boost cognitive function and improve learning and memory. It may even diminish age-related memory decline!
