Citro nutrition tip

Asparagus contains Vitamin A and E, antioxidants that help the body fight off 'free radicals'.

Australian asparagus season runs from  August to December but some growers pick a limited late or secondary crop between January to March.

Extra Virgin olive oil helps deliver the benefits of the Mediterranean diet.
