Asparagus is one of the first spring non starchy vegetables that appears in most farmers' markets. It's very low in carbs and great for the ketogenic diet.

The most common way to use asparagus is to roast it in the oven with a bit of butter and salt - that's how you get the perfect low-carb side for meat dishes. If you want to get a bit more fancy or use it for special occasions like Easter, use it to make this delicious quiche! It tastes great both hot and cold. Make it for lunch and have the leftovers for dinner the next couple of days.

I changed the way I ate in 2011, when I was diagnosed with Hashimoto’s, an autoimmune disease that affects the thyroid. I had no energy, and I found it more and more difficult to maintain a healthy weight.

That’s when I decided to quit sugar, grains, and processed foods, and to start following a whole-foods-based ketogenic approach to food.
