don’t knock asparagus until you give it a chance. vegetables are a great way to get in those micronutrients, asparagus included! for example, asparagus contains vitamin a and folate. just to name a few functions, vitamin a is important for vision and cell growth. folate belongs to the b-vitamin family and takes part in making new cells for our bodies. research shows that folate is also crucial for fetal brain and spinal cord development!
there are a variety of ways to include asparagus into our meals: salad topper (my favorite), side dish, vegetable platter with a dip option (i.e. hummus), pack as a low-calorie snack and more!
