Asparagus with its high fiber content, and low glycemic index it is considered a smart carb. It is on the Environmental Working Group’s Clean 15 list of fruits and vegetables with the lowest occurrence of pesticides as it naturally grows so quickly the need for pesticides is reduced.

Olive oil was referred to as “Liquid Gold” by the famous Greek poet Homer. If you are what you eat, what would happen if you consumed “Liquid Gold” daily? Extra-virgin olive oil (cold-pressed) is the best fat to use as a salad dressing. Do not use it for cooking. It has a low smoke point and heat makes it susceptible to oxidative damage. Olive oil has so many health benefits I include a little every day when I eat my salad. Have you heard of the olive oil fraud?
