Why is Cauliflower Good for Keto?
When searching for keto-friendly and low carb recipes, you’ve likely noticed that there are many that contain cauliflower. You may also have seen many recipes that use cauliflower in place of higher carb items like potatoes or rice.
Cauliflower is low in both calories and carbs, which makes it ideal for anyone looking to reduce their carbohydrate intake. It’s also got many beneficial vitamins and minerals, so it ADDS good stuff to your diet too!
One cup of cauliflower contains:
- 27 calories
- 3 grams net carbs
- 85% DV of Vitamin C
- 10% DV of Vitamin B-6
- 9% DV of Vitamin K (Potassium)
Not only is cauliflower low in carbs and nutritious, but it is mildly flavored, so it pairs well with many different types of foods. Cauliflower absorbs flavors from a dish, so that makes it easy to use as a keto friendly swap in place of high carb items like potatoes or rice or even pizza crust!
Cauliflower for the win!!

Can Cauliflower Upset Your Stomach?
One word of caution with cauliflower is that it can cause minor digestive issues if you eat a lot of it. By that I mean that you probably don’t want to eat cauliflower at every single meal.
That’s because cauliflower is a member of the cruciferous family of vegetables, which are especially high in soluble fiber. This fiber takes a while to break down, and may cause bloating or gas when eaten in excess. (source)
Enjoying cauliflower in moderation likely won’t cause any noticeable effects, and it is a great way to cut down on carbs in your diet.
