Its wealth of nutrients, fiber and very low sodium and calorie content make asparagus a nutritionally wise choice for today’s health-conscious consumer.

According to MAAB (Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board): Asparagus is one of the most nutritionally well-balanced vegetables in existence. It leads nearly all produce items in the wide array of nutrients it supplies in significant amounts for a healthy diet.

You can (and probably should :)) eat as much asparaguses as you like in every phase except the Attack Phase and the PP days in Cruise Phase. Very recommended as a snack, appetizer, salads & soups ingredient. Very smooth and one of my favorite veg.
