Episode #2 – Asparagus – Tangy, Crunchy and with a kick.
As we continue on our journey to discover the health benefits of the 38 Power foods, we embark upon Asparagus. Fabled for its aphrodisiac properties, it is also supposed to help with keeping you looking younger. Do you need more reasons to eat this sexy little thing?
Ok here are more – It cooks FAST, it is very easy to clean, adapts to any cooking technique and does not need to go under the knife. You can simply twist it around your finger and make it bend and break to your will. How often does a vegetable boast of all this? Read about more health benefits of the asparagus like digestive support, heart healthy nutrients, blood sugar regulating properties etc at WHFoods.
And here is one more reason – the following recipe of stir fry asparagus Indian style. I have made it twice already and both the times was gone as soon as it was plated. Here’s to ‘food for the body and the soul’.
