What's So Great About Asparagus?

We all love asparagus for its delicious taste, but what else has it got going for it? Turns out, quite a lot! 

Like all veggies, asparagus is a great source of fiber, which is found primarily in the skin on its stalks, so try to avoid peeling it! On top of that, asparagus packs in lots of vitamins and minerals, including Vitamin A, folate, and potassium. 

Enjoy some asparagus tonight, and try steaming, grilling, or roasting (as opposed to boiling) to maintain the best possible nutritional and culinary integrity.

Let me know if you have any questions!
