A super-powered super food
Asparagus can do more for your body than any other veggie! Don’t give up on this food if you have tried it and did not like it in the past. There are several ways to enjoy this powerful food. Here are some reasons why you should reconsider or eat more:

• Makes your heart happy and fights depression
• Natural diuretic that helps cleans the body
• Reduces pain and inflammation
• Anti-aging functions
• Prevents kidney stones and prevents bladder infections
• Helps prevent multiple sclerosis
• Lowers cholesterol
• Lowers risk of heart disease
• It is a potent antioxidant
• Fights fungus and viruses
• Fights cancer
• Naturally lowers blood pressure
• Fights chronic fatigue syndrome
• Fights osteoporosis and osteoarthritis
• Stimulates hair production
• Natural aphrodisiac
• Decreases risk of birth defects
• Stimulates milk production in nursing mothers

As a fitness competitor, I eat 30 spears per day to help me with many things listed above. My favorites are the fact that it is a natural diuretic, helps with inflammation and cleanses the body of impurities. If you slip up and have a cheat meal, try following it up with some asparagus and a tall glass of water. Here are ways to enjoy your asparagus:

• Coat with olive oil and seasoning and roast at 400 degrees until crispy (approx 15 minutes)
• Microwave for 2 minutes, put in hot skillet and sauté for 2 minutes on each side
• Grill in aluminum foil, adding seasonings and olive oil
• Microwave it in Ziplock steam bag (Zip’n Steam) for 2 minutes
• Finely chop and add to an omelet or salads
