The Perfect Dieting Fare
Calorie-wise, asparagus competes very well with lettuce, which has about eight calories per cup full.
At the store, look for fresh asaparagus, identified by its slightly purple colored tips that appear tightly pointed, and stems that have not become limp in the display tray..
- Tip: Drizzle half a teaspoon of virgin olive oil over the hot asparagus.
