Hate it or love it, asparagus needs to be on your list of cool foods to eat. It can do no wrong in my book. It is a superfood, rich in fiber, folate, vitamin B-12, iron, zinc, amino acids and a host of other goodies your body needs. This green vegetable is said to help reduce the frequency of headaches as well as help transport glucose from your bloodstream into your cells. In other words, it’s nature’s medicine.

Grab a stalk and make this tasty recipe below.


1 bunch of asparagus (Try the purple or white varieties, too) with woody stems trimmed
Kosher Salt
Ground black pepper to taste
1/2 tablespoon minced garlic

4. Toss to coat evenly.
5. Cook asparagus 2 to 5 minutes or to your liking of doneness.
