A fabulous selection of vegetables and eggs from my friends farm. I used the asparagus and four of the eggs to make an omelette – his suggestion for the use of the asparagus!!

Asparagus is an excellent source of the flavonoid Quercetin. (Flavonoids are phytonutrients found in almost all fruits and vegetables and they are responsible for their vibrant colors)

Quercetin is a potent antioxidant. It is also excellent at fighting inflammation in the body. Quercetin is a natural anti histamine making it effective for lowering the effects of allergic responses such as runny noses, hives and watery eyes.

Asparagus is also an excellent source of Folate, Copper, Selenium, Vitamins B1, B2, C, E and K.
