What’s in season in February?

Gimme all of the colors and citrus! This month head to your local grocery store to pick up:

  • Broccoli
  • Brussels sprouts
  • Cabbage
  • Cauliflower
  • Kale
  • Lemons
  • Oranges
  • Squash
  • Sweet potatoes

P.S. did you know we have dedicated ingredient pages? YES! Click any of the produce names above to see all of those recipes, or head to our Recipe Index to filter by even more.

I picked out go-to lunches and dinners that use seasonal winter produce and are super satisfying. They’re great to pack for work or share with the whole family. I’ve also got you covered with some yummy chocolate treats that are perfect for Valentine’s Day.

Okay and some healthy chocolate for breakfast because life’s too short not to do it.

If you make any of these seasonal recipes this month be sure to leave a comment and let me know how you liked it! Snap a photo and share it on Instagram with the hashtag #ambitiouskitchen and in our Facebook group. xo!
