Food Fact of the Day: Broccoli

broccoli

October is the last month that you will find broccoli in season in Ontario, therefore, I wanted to give you a reason why to grab it local while you still can!

Broccoli is a great source of: 

  • Folate: cannot be made in the body, helps make red blood cells
  • Vitamin C: needed for growth and repair of skin, teeth, bones, and other tissues
  • Vitamin K: helps heal wounds, maintain blood vessels, and keep your bones healthy
  • Provides a source of fibre: maintain a healthy digestive system
  • Potassium: needed by your bones, kidneys, nerves, and muscle for proper function
  • Vitamin A: maintains normal vision, keeps immune system, skin, and eyes healthy
