Asparagus is a classic spring vegetable which has many health benefits
I have been eating quite healthy for the last few years but it hasn’t always been that way. While of course I always knew that eating healthy stuff is important for keeping your weight in check, I was really inspired to expand my family’s recipe repertoire after reading Forever Young: The Science of Nutrigenomics for Glowing, Wrinkle-Free Skin and Radiant Health at Every Age book by Dr. Nicholas Perricone. It took me several years to gradually switch to a much healthier diet and a key part of that journey has been finding healthy recipes that are easy to make, use simple ingredients available in local stores and are yummy at the same time. I will turn 37 in a couple of weeks and I’m really happy with my weight, my skin and my health so I think making an effort to eat good foods really pays off!
I hope that I can inspire you to eat a variety of healthy foods with this post series! I will try to select in-season produce, give you information on its nutritional benefits and suggest some interesting recipes.
So here you go, the first vegetable in the series: Asparagus!
