Health:
Buckwheat (Soba) noodles: Soba is the Japanese name for 100% buckwheat. These noodles are high in potassium and protein, very low in fat, no saturated fat and are a low calorie food. They are gluten free, and are a low glycemic food.
 
Asparagus: high in glutathione, an important anti carcinogen, antioxidant. It contains rutin which protects small blood vessels from rupturing. Asparagus is a good source of vitamin A, C, E, B-complex, potassium and zinc.
