Bloated and suffering from gut problems?

The best and nature's way of looking after the gut is by feeding the 'good' gut bacteria with a special kind of food called prebiotics. Prebiotics can be found in the following foods: Asparagus, leeks, garlic, Jerusalem artichoke, chicory root, banana wheat


Allow asparagus to grow without harvesting the year it is planted. In the second year, harvest spears that are 1/2-inch in diameter, but only for two weeks. Cut or break off 7- to 9-inch-long spears with tightly closed tips. In subsequent years, harvest for five to eight weeks, then allow the shoots to develop into ferny growth to build up the roots for the following year's crop.

How to Grow Asparagus in Raised Beds

How to grow asparagus in raised beds. Asparagus is a perennial vegetable plant that can be a long-lasting, permanent addition to a home garden. This vegetable requires well-draining soil to thrive; waterlogged soil can cause the roots of the asparagus plant to rot. Growing asparagus in raised beds offers them well-draining soil, as well as being a more convenient way to plant asparagus, since it does not require that you till the soil deeply with a rotary tiller.

Creamy Winter Risotto with Asiago Cheese

Creamy Winter Risotto with Asiago Cheese. Yum! Used veg broth instead. No bacon. Added some thinly sliced zucchini (quickly sauteed after the mushrooms). It took about 4 cups of veg broth. Instead of asiago, I used parm and a few tbsp romano.
