Asparagus is one of the best bloat fighters out there, but I have to admit it can be a really boring vegetable. Asparagus is an all-star in the de-bloating department, thanks to a special amino acid known as asparagine, or aspartic acid. A powerful diuretic, asparagine can also be blamed for giving urine a distinguishing odor in individuals who lack the enzymes that break it down. Get it while it’s hot though; asparagus season ends soon!
I’ve always just eaten grilled asparagus with olive oil and a little sea salt and pepper. Of course that’s a delicious way to eat it but it is really kind of plain. So, you may want to check my “Asparagus with Coconut Oil” recipe here on this website.
