Food of the Day: Asparagus

Groups Of Asparagus


If it sounds like I’m marketing food, well, I am. Fresh food that is. You know spring is here when you see fresh asparagus at the store. I can’t wait to check out my local farmers’ market this weekend and get in on some grown right here in Idaho.

Not only is asparagus in season and tasty, it’s high in antioxidants and low in calories.

And did you know asparagus is also amongst the oldest herbs to mankind (take that Oregano!)
