Well I figured I better at least try to find out a little bit more about my blog mascot. So yes I discovered the Michigan Asparagus Advisory Board. There is much to read there that is quite fascinating about one of my favorite vegetables but here are two that you might want to know yourself.
1) It is one of the healthiest vegetables and contains a very high amount of folic acid (you may have heard about this vitamin as crucial for pregnancy).
2) Urine smells funny after eating asparagus becuase one of the important amino acids (protein building block) in asparagus contains sulfer. As your body digests this amino acid the sulfer is released.
