Broccoli #MacroMonday

Broccoli is a wonderful vegetable to grow during a central Texas winter and early spring.

  • It withstands light freezes and even keeps producing little tiny florets of broccoli after cutting off the main stalk.
  • It’s high in vitamin C (1 cup=135% of your DV).  It’s a perfect food to kick that winter cold in the ass.
  • All parts of the broccoli can be used for cooking. Yep, even the stems.

It’s a garden gift that keeps on giving and a beautiful one at that. I like it steamed with a bit of olive oil and a pinch of salt. Now, if only I can get my little man to enjoy it as much as I do.
