Asparagus is available year round, but during spring is when they are at their peak. These long stalks pack so much within them. They are low in calories and are considered a detoxing and anti-aging vegetable (*preserving your sexy*). They also provide calcium, folic acid, Vitamins A, B, C, and specifically B9 (which helps prevent birth defects). Granted they give your urine a strong odor, but that just lets you know your body is still working and its doing its digestive thing, which is great news.
1 pound of Asparagus, trimmed
2 Garlic Cloves sliced
1/2 Shallot *optional
1/2 tsp. Himalayan pink salt or sea salt
1 tsp. Black pepper
2 Tbsp. Extra Virgin Olive Oil
If roasting the asparagus: 400 degree oven for about 8-14 min until tender but still crisp.
