Primal+Keto Cooking Made Easy: Lemony Asparagus

Asparagus has always been one of my favorite vegetables. With great fiber content and a unique taste, it’s a go-to for my Primal and keto meals. Another plus: it’s simple to prepare. That said, however, it does take a bit of precision. The best way I’ve found to prepare asparagus is roasting, and nothing beats the tanginess of lemon to complement its taste. Serve it up with some flavorful chicken or salmon for a full Primal and keto-friendly dinner.
