The power of organic.

We know that fruits and vegetables that should be eaten
with EVERY meal.  Organic is necessary because the daily consumption 
of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides, not to mention the genetically modified component, creates a real health risk long-term. These pesticides are not only carcinogenic but they also interrupt your natural hormone balance since pesticides are actually xeno-estrogens. These means that they increase bad estrogen's in your body leading to a host of symptoms including weight gain, low libido, hair loss and memory loss. As for fresh fruits and vegetables, we are all well aware of their importance in health. This is where we find the TRUE cancer and disease-fighting components that keep us healthy and young. Not to mention, we also find a bulk of our minerals here (especially in GREEN leafy vegetables), which keep our body ALKALINE. And we all remember why being alkaline is so important right? Alkaline equals TISSUE OXYGEN, and a DISEASE-FREE body.
Steamed, boiled, sauteed, roasted, grilled--asparagus takes 
on different qualities ,however you cook it. Roasting and grilling turns asparagus almost sweet. Steamed or boiled, asparagus retains the vegetable's natural flavor. Pencil-thin spears are even great raw or blanched--use them in salads or serve them as an appetizer alongside a dip of your choice. In case you're wondering where asparagus comes from, it's actually related to the lily. The spears emerge from a rhizome below the soil level and are harvested typically thin and young. Mediterranean in origin, asparagus is now grown in almost every corner of the world, including Mexico, Peru, Chile andthe USA!
