Asparagus is a wonder-food! It is a great source of Vitamin K which is the vitamin that regulates blood clotting. However, if you are on a blood-thinning medication, it is advisable to check with your health-care provider to make sure asparagus is on your approved list.

In addition, asparagus is a great natural diuretic, nourishes the digestive tract, is a good source of fiber plus is considered an anti-inflammatory food with the extra bonus of being an antioxidant. All in all, this food should be showing up on your table a few times a month!

This dish comes together rather quickly…the risotto needs to be slow-cooked so try not to rush it!

ENJOY!

Broccoli is one of the best vegetables! It is a great source of Vitamin C which is vital during cold and flu season.

I make this dish year-round and include some apple cider vinegar to help boost health benefits.
