Asparagus

Price: $2.99 per pound

Eating asparagus regularly isn’t just a culinary pleasure; it’s downright heart-healthy. Asparagus is an excellent source of folate, a B vitamin that might protect against heart disease. Folate supplements are available, but might not be as effective as foods — including asparagus — that are naturally high in the nutrient.

How to eat it

Asparagus is typically steamed, but you can grill, roast or stir-fry it with equally good results. Although it’s available all year, it’s one of the foods that will likely be cheaper in the spring.
