Shop Locally; Eat Seasonally
British asparagus season may be brief but is worth celebrating. Not only do those little green shoots taste really good, they also contain vitamin K, which is essential for healthy blood clotting. It is a rich source of vitamin C to boost your immune system (particularly helpful right now) and asparagus is also a mild diuretic and is believed to help detoxify the body.
We’re all needing to shop locally right now, and many of us are shopping at farm shops. This makes eating seasonally essential.
Plus an Asparagus Recipe for One
This asparagus recipe is perfect for a quick and easy lunch. It serves one but is really easy to scale up to serve 2 or more, if your household is a little bigger.
