"I'll mix chopped red onions, asparagus and a little bit of spinach in with one whole egg and two egg whites for a protein and veggie-packed breakfast.

"The recipe's similar to this yummy one on What Should I Eat For Breakfast Today. And then I have coffee on the side, because obviously." — Lauren Joskowitz, entertainment editor

"To be completely honest, I'm not the biggest fan of asparagus. It’s the one and only vegetable I just can’t seem to get behind.

"But when you put it in a puff pastry and cover it with cheese, like in this buttery, crumbly recipe by The Life Jolie? Total perfection." — Kenzie Mastroe, branded content editor

"Not gonna lie. I rarely cook with asparagus. The one time I did, it was for a party, and it involved bacon. Needless to say, it was awesome. The recipe I used came from Wholesome Yum, and it was perfect. 

"Now, I know what you’re thinking. Bacon? Really? I’m on a diet, girl. But wait; it’s not all that bad for you. This combo is low-carb. It's even appropriate for your Whole 30 diet! At least, this was enough to make me feel better about making and eating it." — Kristine Cannon, entertainment editor
