In February, depending on the favourable or unfavourable weather conditions of the period, it is possible to harvest the following vegetables: Beet belongs to the family of Chenopodiaceae and contains oxalic acid, very useful for bone health, as well as sodium, magnesium, iron and potassium. Beets also have refreshing, anti-anemic and emollient properties and are almost totally free of fat, so they are very suitable in low-calorie diets. Excellent to cunsumarsi boesse to enrich all your recipes, such as the traditional "Canascioni Venafrani" The carrot is a plant belonging to the family of umbrellas whose root is often used to make delicious side dishes, both raw and cooked ( recipe "Fagottini di giardiniera"). Rich in minerals and vitamins, including A, B and C, combined with sodium, calcium and magnesium, carrots have healing properties, help the skin to stay smooth and are useful for those with vision problems. It also contains beta-carotene, which helps to give a beautiful complexion and enhance the immune system. The Leek belongs to the family of alliaceae and is excellent for making pies or to prepare delicious fried (as in the delicious "field risotto"). Leeks are considered a real anticancer food and the presence of allyl, along with flavonoids, make them useful also to give benefits to blood circulation by reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease and for intestinal regularization. Broccoli belongs to the Cruciferae family and is a vegetable rich in mineral salts, such as calcium, iron and potassium, vitamin C, dietary fibre and sulforaphane, a substance that prevents the growth of carcinogenic cells. Excellent for preparing a large number of dishes, broccoli also fights water retention, detoxifying the body and eliminating waste. Artichokes are one of the most popular winter vegetables. Also called Cynaria Scolymus, artichokes are valuable allies of our liver and cardiovascular system, thanks to cynarin that promotes diuresis and biliary secretion and are also particularly suitable for the diet of diabetics, since their sugars are made up of inulin, useful to the body to reduce levels of cholesterol and triglycerides in the blood. Excellent to eat in a wide variety of dishes, the artichoke consumes the stems and the inner leaves more tender, while the outside are eliminated. Fennel belongs to the Umbelliferae family and is much appreciated for its crunchiness and delicate flavour to be enjoyed raw, au gratin in excellent savoury pies. Fennel is best known for its digestive activities, but it is an ally of the entire gastrointestinal system, as well as having good purifying properties, particularly in the liver and blood. It also has anti-inflammatory properties and is rich in potassium and flavonoids.
