One of the first foods that signals the start of spring is the appearance of fresh asparagus sold every where in supermarket or farm market.Asparagus is just packed with health benefits and it’s loaded with nutrients: Asparagus is a very good source of fiber, folate, vitamins A, C, E and K, as well as chromium.Asparagus is also packed with antioxidants, ranking among the top fruits and vegetables for its ability to neutralize cell-damaging free radicals.
