My 5yo wanted veggies, I told him he could have some green beans if he cleaned up the living room, and he did it!

Awesome  :-)

Yesterday, my menu plan had down eggplant and tomatoes for lunch.  My kids LOVE eggplant and tomatoes.  However, as I was starting to cook, they spotted an orange cauliflower in the fridge (my CSA rarely grows white cauli's, they're almost always orange or purple) and they both **demanded** cauliflower and tomatoes for lunch.  My kids are weird, LOL

I never knew there were different colors of cauliflowers!  Do the different colors have different nutrients like the different colored bell peppers?

I would assume so.  I know that the colors are older "heritage" varieties developed before the beginnings of market preferences for specific colors.  Did you know that carrots also come in red, purple, and yellow varieties?  And that beets come in stripped and yellow varieties?  And that tomatoes come in pretty much the entire rainbow of colors, including stripes and excluding blue?  I've even seen pea pods and cucumbers that are yellow.  :-D
