    Asparagus-Mung Sprouts Salad

    The Ayurveda Experience March 20, 2016

    Asparagus- Mung Sprouts Salad is a wonderful addition to your Spring diet. Asparagus has a soothing and balm like effect on the digestive and urinary tract. It builds strength, is easy to digest and is a tridoshic (useful for all 3 constitutions) food.

    It is known to aid in eliminating water retention problems, especially puffy eyes in the morning. Asparagus has astringent properties which help to tone the skin.

    Asparagus has blood purifying properties and helps drain the lymphatic system (rasa mala). It also helps remove Ama or metabolic toxins.

    Green asparagus is rich in potassium, calcium, vitamin C, and folic acid. Mung bean sprouts are a source of vitamin C, iron and calcium.

    Sprouts in general promote Sattva guna (purity), by uplifting the mind.

    Asparagus is in season and I love to experiment with this amazing vegetable.
