Another thing I love that comes along with spring is that there are always fresh white asparagus on sale in Belgium. My dad makes the best asparagus you'll ever tried. He goes to an old farmer, 1 hour drive from my house, to get them freshly cut. In belgium the most common way to eat them is "op zijn vlaams" with scrabbled eggs and fresh parsley. But my dad makes them in all different ways.
I love asparagus, from since I was a kid we always had them during spring, sometimes everyday for 2 weeks in a row. Asparagus are not only tasty, they are also very good for you. They are low in calories and are very low in sodium and are a good source of dietary fiber and protein. Asparagus are also good for preventing rheumatism, heart disease and promotes sexual debility (desire).
The only bad thing is that your urine smells like... CAT PISS?
