Asparagus is best when prepared simply like this, if you ask me. 

Plus, you really don’t need to add anything extra special to it.


Yes, asparagus is low in calories and  is a proven food item that works well for those trying to loss weight. Plus it is is packed full of great source of nutrients, including fiberfolate and vitamins A, C and K. 

It makes for one tasty and healthy snack, that is for sure.
