I always know that right after the Boston marathon I can start looking forward to asparagus season. Asparagus is a great source of vitamins, fiber, and other good things runners need.
Some tips on asparagus:
-Look for firm stalks, ideally kept with their bottom ends in water.
-Keep asparagus in the crisper drawer of your fridge, and it is good for a solid week.
-Ways to enjoy asparagus: cut stalks into bite-sized pieces for steaming, or saute in olive oil. Or, the small, tenderest stalks are great raw, in your favorite vegetable dip or sprinkled with a little pepper.
