Broccoli is a cool-season crop that, like spinach, can be grown in the spring or fall. Broccoli is a chlorophyll-based vegetable that is a part of the cabbage family. It’s loaded with tons of vitamins and minerals, which oxygenate and nourish the body down to the cellular level. In fact, broccoli juice contains two-thirds more vitamin C than cooked broccoli. It also has significant amounts of vitamin A and calcium.
