Asparagus is one of my favorite veggies, especially now that beach season is in full effect here in New York. Why? Because asparagus helps to promote a flat belly. It contains both digestive and diuretic properties. Diuretic properties help to promote shedding of extra body water, and the digestive properties promote healthy gut bacteria that’s great for our health overall. Aside from its de-bloating benefits, asparagus is a source of brain-healthy folate, as well as immune-boosting nutrients vitamins A and C, and chromium, a nutrient that helps to promote healthy and balanced blood sugar. Happy asparagus eating!
