Grilled asparagus, smoked trout, and the mossssstttt delicious hemp mustard creme! Yum!!! Plenty of essential fatty acids, nourishing proteins and as for the added bonus extras – did you know asparagus is rich in a bioflavonoid call ‘rutin’ ? Its role is to protect our cells from free radical damage, assist the body’s production of collagen, and to strengthen capillaries so it’s a wonderful nutrient for the health of our skin! Love knowing this when I’m devouring a yummy meal.
