When is broccoli season?

Broccoli is one of the healthiest vegetables and the first we think of once we want to go for good eating habits. Super easy to cook, containing a lot of water and with a rich taste, it’s our very best ally to eat simple, tasty and healthy.

Broccoli is cultivated throughout America. California is the biggest producer and providing the stores during the twelve months. Broccoli season in Texas is from December until May and in Arizona from October to March.  As this incredibly healthy veggie is locally produced in most American states, you may purchase it off the shelves of your nearest local producers.

Broccoli is packed with vitamins and minerals, including folate, potassium, manganese, iron, and vitamins C and K1. It has way more proteins that most of the vegetables; thanks to this and the high content of fiber and water, it gives a filling sensation, helping in weight loss diets. It also has high antioxidants content and helps to keep your blood pressure low.

Luckily, it’s very easy to include broccoli in your diet. If you want a super healthy preparation, you can make a detox spinach and broccoli soup, but you can go for a richer preparation as a cheese broccoli creamy soup. You can also replace unhealthy snacks with broccoli bites or include it in a vegetarian lasagna.
