Steamed asparagus

Are you one of the people who loves to eat asparagus and dreads a trip to the bathroom afterwards? In this lively, short video, learn why asparagus makes a potty break odoriferous for some of us and not for others.

With gratitude to the folks at How Does It Grow for this lighthearted and factual answer to a puzzling question.

And that, dear friends, is today’s Monday bite.

Goodness knows I fail to live up to my ideals far too often, but I strive each day to feed the body well, nourish the soul, heal the Earth, build community, make peace and, where possible, wreak a little joy.


  1. Ha ha – well, no growing babies here, but I do have a bundle of asparagus in the fridge! It’s almost all we have left to eat as we get ready to fly home, so there’ll be a lot of asparagusic acid digested and “enjoyed” today! How’s that for TMI?
