This summer, Sage is featuring fruits and vegetables that we love for their healing properties. Stay tuned for the virtual feast!
A is for Asparagus!
Raise your hand if you love asparagus!!! It’s a perfect vegetable for spring, the season of Wood in Chinese Medicine. It clears heat and invigorates the blood. Nutritionally, it is high in folate and a good source of Vitamin C and beta carotene. It also contains glutathione, a phytochemical that has antioxidant and anticarcinogenic properties. It also contains inulin, a carbohydrate that increases the bacterial flora in the gut!
