Do you eat seasonally?
Eating seasonal fruits and vegetables is one of the foundational principles of a healthy and sustainable diet.
Asparagus is a classic springtime veggie. Harvested between February and June, asparagus season usually peaks around April. While asparagus is available year-round in most grocery stores, the best time to eat it is when it is fresh and in season.
The health benefits of asparagus include an array of vitamins and minerals, fiber, antioxidants, and chlorophyll.
