There’s an abundance of lush green crops filling British fields and allotments right now. This month we’re championing ASPARAGUS, LETTUCE and PEAS



It’s one of the markers of British spring, and the home-grown crop is only around until June, so get your fill while it’s good.

Nutritional reasons to buy

Asparagus is a great choice for boosting nutrients in our diet. It’s a rich source of folate; just four spears provide 87% of our daily needs for this B vitamin, which is important for healthy blood, immunity and protecting against birth defects such as spina bifida in developing babies. Asparagus is also a rich source of vitamin K, good for healthy bones and blood clotting, and it’s a prebiotic so it helps to keep our digestion healthy and our immune system strong. Plus, with just under 7kcal per spear, asparagus is a good replacement for crisps or crackers to enjoy with dips.
