Why Dr. Hoody endorses this recipe:
Asparagus is one of the most nutritionally balanced vegetables. It is reputed to be an aphrodisiac, and is especially high in folic acid and potassium. Combine that with salt, needed during the warm weather, and the antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties of olive oil, this is a wonderful summer dish.
Looking for a low calorie healthy green, and a great source of nutrients, including fiber, folate and vitamins A, C and K to side to serve with dinner? Try asparagus! Eating asparagus has a number of potential health benefits, including weight loss, improved digestions and lowering blood pressure.
