FAQ about asparagus
If you're looking for health-conscious ways to eat asparagus, eat it raw in salads or pasta. You can also steam it and put it into your eggs or eat it by itself. To maximize the healthy features of the asparagus, try eating it both raw and steamed. Avoid eating fully cooked asparagus, as it will begin to lose nutrients.
Like many vegetables, the entire asparagus is safe to eat, from the top of the spear down to the stem. You'll want to avoid the tough, woody part at the bottom. The best way to know which part to trim is to hold the asparagus by the center and bottom and bend it. It will naturally snap between where the tough part ends and the tender spear begins.
Since asparagus are natural diuretics, they help your body get rid of toxins. If your body has excess stores of salt and fluid built up, asparagus can help your body let it go. Asparagus is especially helpful for those who have edema and high blood pressure. It can also help reduce kidney toxins, which in turn can prevent the occurrence of kidney stones.
