Not only does it make the dish taste super fresh, but asparagus also has loads of other benefits!
Asparagus is low in calories but high in nutrients, including folate and vitamins A, C and K. These micronutrients are known for helping make red and white blood cells, supporting your immune system and helping blood clotting.
In addition, the amino acids and minerals found in asparagus may alleviate an alcohol hangover by protecting liver cells against toxins, helping your morning after the night before feel a little better!
Something that asparagus has in bucket loads is fibre - something very few of us get enough of. Fibre can help with bloating as it promotes regularity and digestive health and may also help reduce your risk of heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. Not bad for a little green stick, eh?😎 Do you want to increase the amount of fibre in your diet? Look no further than our NEW DISH: IRRESISTIBLE BARLEY RISOTTO, it’s packed full of the stuff!
