Bacon and asparagus come together in perfect harmony with these little bundles of pure, keto-friendly joy.  They can be made ahead of time for a meal prep, stored in the fridge, and then baked fresh in the oven anytime you are ready for your meal.  This versatile dish makes for a wonderful appetizer and can also be paired with a delicious breakfast casserole or even served alongside pancakes.

Bacon can almost instantly turn anything from good to great and asparagus is no exception.  Asparagus is a great low carb veggie option to include in your ketogenic diet due to its great health benefits.

Benefits of Asparagus:

  1. Loaded with nutrients and fiber
  2. Major source of antioxidants
  3. Natural diuretic

#1: Vitamins, Minerals, and Fiber

Asparagus is rich in vitamins A, C, E, and K, and trace minerals. Another reason why asparagus is a wonderful vegetable option for keto is that it is low in carbs and a good source of fiber. This fiber can help improve digestion, move food through the gut, improve liver function, and cleanse the body of toxins. This is key in reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, diabetes, and gastrointestinal diseases.

#2: Antioxidants

This vegetable contains glutathione which acts as a major antioxidant.  It’s a detoxifying compound that helps break down free radicals and carcinogens which can protect against certain forms of cancer and heart disease. In addition, these antioxidants can help slow the aging process and can also help reduce inflammation in the body.

#3: Diuretic

Asparagus naturally contains an amino acid called asparagine which increases urination production.  Releasing excess fluids in the body is especially beneficial for those suffering from high blood pressure and heart-related medical conditions.

Keto-favorite bacon, and nutrient-rich asparagus are a match made in heaven that will have you and your guests coming back for more.

  1. I made it and added garlic salt was delicious. Definitely making it again.
