Asparagus is another superfood that should be regularly found in your grocery list. I have always loved eating grilled asparagus because it is just so yummy. I didn't know it was so good for us too.
Apart from being a good source of fibre and protein, asparagus also has a number of anti-inflammatory compounds.
Asparagus has a unique carb called inulin which remains undigested till it reaches the large intestine where it helps to fight against colon cancer.
Green Asparagus is better than white asparagus as the goodness is in the green stalk which contains Vit A for better vision, potassium for smooth kidney function and trace materials for better immunity.
But why does our pee stink even 15 minutes after eating asparagus? It is because the asparagus's sulphurous amino acids break down into smelly chemical compounds during digestion. But since only a quarter of our population can smell the asparagus pee, if you can smell it, not only are you normal, you also have a good nose. :))
