March means its the peak season for Broccoli, Carrots, Cauliflower, and Spinach in Texas and Louisiana.
Broccoli has a high content of Vitamin C, making 1 cup of chopped broccoli the Vitamin C equivalent of an orange.
- Broccoli is also very high in Vitamin A, which helps to fight cancer stem cells, as well as keep your eyes healthy. It also helps to promote healthy skin, bones, and teeth and break down urinary stones.
- Broccoli contains flavonoid kaempferol, an anti-inflammatory, which helps fight against cancer and heart disease, and has been shown to be preventative in the onset of adult diabetes.
Carrots are one of the best sources for beta-carotene. The human body turns beta-carotene into vitamin A, which is important for the health of our vision, bones, teeth, and skin.
Cauliflower is a great source of dietary fibers, vitamins C, K, B, and potassium. Cauliflower has low caloric value and can be used as a substitute for rice and potato.
- Cauliflower incorporated into your regular diet has been proven to prevent cancer. Cauliflower contains a sulfur compound, sulforaphane, which has shown to kill cancer stem cells and slowing tumor growth.
