Sautéed Asparagus with Garlic and Lemon
Asparagus is a great source of vitamin K1, folates, vitamin C, beta-carotene, and potassium. Asparagus also contains a large amount of inulin, which is a carbohydrate that our bodies cannot digest. The friendly health-promoting bacteria in our large intestine, such as Bifidobacteria and Lactobacilli, do digest it, though. When we feed the friendly bacteria in our gut, their growth increases, which shields out the more harmful bacteria that can have negative effects on our health. Serve this wonderful springtime dish with fish or poached eggs.
