Great Stuff!

There's loads of great stuff out there to enhance your physical and spiritual health. Every two weeks, All Spirit Fitness brings you something we've found useful. Sometimes it's a brand new fitness tool, sometimes it's an everyday item that you can find at the store. Whatever it is, rest assured that if it's on this page, we think it's great!


Asparagus

Asparagus is one of those rare vegetables that is as elegant as it is healthy. Its long, graceful lines and compact head dress up any dinner plate. And asparagus is packed with Vitamins A and C and loaded with phytochemicals. (In fact, it has the highest amount of the phytochemical Glutathione of any known fruit or vegetable. Glutathione is a powerful antioxidant and anticarcinogen). An average serving has 60 percent of the recommended daily amount of the B Vitamin Folacin, which helps keep your cells in good repair. It's also high in fiber, and a serving of 6 spears contains a mere 25 calories (without adding a rich sauce, that is).

Asparagus is an easy-going vegetable — you can cook it just about any way you want, or eat it raw. When cooking, just remember to choose spears that are uniform in size so they're all done at the same time. While you can get fresh asparagus year-round at the supermarket, it's even better when it comes straight from a garden during its regular growing season, late March through June. Freshly harvested asparagus is especially sweet and tender. A meal that includes it is a special occasion. Need we mention that if you are lucky enough to have garden fresh asparagus that it should be eaten without any dressing or sauce? Enjoy it steamed or perhaps roasted, with just a bit of Extra Virgin olive oil.

The rest of the year, you can try some of these delicious asparagus recipes from the Green Grocer.
