Grow your own asparagus the perfect vegetable for keto diet

In this video tutorial I will explain why asparagus is the perfect vegetable for the keto diet and I show you how easy it is to grow your own asparagus at home. Asparagus has only 2 grams of carbs per 100 grams and is rich in vitamins and minerals. That is why asparagus is the perfect vegetable for the keto diet.
Asparagus belongs to the lily family and is a perennial plant which can yield for 15 to 20 years without replanting. There are male and female plants, the male plants produce the best spears whilst the females can produce seed if the spears are not harvested. Asparagus can be grown from seed but it will take a year or more longer to get a crop. The best way to propagate is from root crowns which develop below soil level in tight clusters with long fleshy roots. You could buy these from a nursery (Mary Washing ton is a good variety) or they could be obtained but digging up an established plant (3-4 years old) in late winter, keep in sawdust in a paper bag until spring then usually can separate into several entities each with a few root crowns. They can be planted in deep pots (40 cm) or directly into the garden
Asparagus has been described as the perfect keto diet vegetable because when in ketosis the body loses a lot of water and along with the water minerals can become depleted. So eating asparagus can help to counter act this. In this regard, asparagus is rich in the minerals potassium, phosphorous as well as the trace elements, zinc and iron. Not only that asparagus is a good source of vit K, folate, vit C, vit A and vit E. And just as important it is also high in dietary fibre which helps to settle digestive problems that some people experience on a keto diet.
