Never Over Train Your Asparagus


  • 1-2 Bunches of Asparagus (ends trimmed and shaved)
  • Coarse Salt
  • Ground Pepper
  • Good EVOO or Spray Canola Oil
  • Sprinkle of Garlic Powder
  • Sprinkle of Onion Powder
  • Fresh Squeezed Lemon Juice

Step 1

Pre-heat oven to 400 degrees. 

Step 2

Trim the tough ends of the asparagus and, if they're thick, peel them.

Step 3

Place the asparagus on a baking sheet, drizzle with EVOO or spray canola oil, then toss to coat the asparagus completely. 

Step 4

Spread out the asparagus, soldier-like, on your lined baking sheet. Lightly sprinkle salt, pepper, garlic powder and onion powder all over your asparagus.

Step 5

 Roast the asparagus for about 10-12 minutes. Drizzle with fresh lemon juice and serve or let cool before storing in a tight glass container.

Pro Tip: You never want to "over train" your asparagus. I would even suggest cutting the cooking time in half when using asparagus in meal prep. Over training your asparagus will lead to a very mushy, untoned veggie which will lead your tastebuds to that forbidden snack pantry and have you sprinting back to my mise en exercise
