I also thought it would be fun to share some fun facts about asparagus!
- Did you know that Queen Nefertiti said that asparagus was the food of the Gods. Looks like great minds think alike!
- Asparagus is rich in folic acid – a yummy and easy way to get that great vitamin! This great vegetable also does not contain any fat or cholesterol – yea!
- Some of you know about “asparagus pee”. Yes asparagus makes your pee smell different. What you may not know is that only people with a certain “gene” can smell the asparagus pee. I read that only 25% of people can smell it. I wonder how true that is – I can sure smell it and friends I know can as well. Maybe that is information some of you would rather not know! 🙂
