Walking through the produce section can be difficult, especially when there is an endless amount of vegetables planted on the tables with a lack of explanation on how to prepare them. Next time you are in this situation, consider asparagus! Asparagus makes a delicious side to any protein source. Whether you boil, steam, saute, or roast it, it is a very simple way to get your greens in. The 3 colors of asparagus – green, white, and purple – are very similar and have minor differences. The thickness of the stalk does contribute to the flavor of the vegetable and the cooking time may vary accordingly. Not only does asparagus taste delicious and have simple prep, but it has an excellent source of Vitamin K which contributes to building strong bones!
