Asparagus, the Springtime Superfood
Sautéed, grilled, baked or boiled, asparagus is a versatile superfood loaded with amazing health benefits. We love it as a side dish next to our protein or simply dressed with a squeeze of lemon with some salad. Its satisfying crunch is a complement to any meal!
🌿 These green spears are high in antioxidants and a powerful punch of healthy vitamins and minerals: fiber, vitamins A, C, E and K and folate.
👌🏻 This nutrient-dense vegetable is one of the best sources of good bacteria! It is packed with prebiotics, which helps support a healthy gut flora and keeps our immune system healthy. This means you get sick less, fight off infections and manage inflammation well.
🥩 Many athletes don't get enough iron because non-meat sources of the mineral, such as vegetables and grains, are not as readily absorbed by the body. But eating foods high in vitamin C, like asparagus, increases iron absorption from plant-based foods.
