I still have to force myself to eat my greens. One way is by loading up with flavor, and try not to add a lot of fat on the way. A few years ago my bother called and let it be know that the orchard behind his home had Asparagus for the picking. I have been waiting for his call but he has not called. Asparagus is one vegetable I happen to like but it is usually so expensive. It has such a short season on one day gone the next. I happen to see a bunch at the market last week it was priced to sell. I baked this asparagus while our salmon was cooking. You are saying baked asparagus, if you have never tried it you need to you will love it. Asparagus is a great source of potassium and fiber.
