Notes

The caloric value was calculated per serving.
Benefits:
Asparagus is astringent, sweet, cooling and a diuretic. It is balancing for all doshas.
Recommendations for doshas:
Vata: eggs can be a good source of nutrition, as they are grounding and nourishing. They should be eaten in moderation and preferably cooked with warming spices like cumin, ginger, or black pepper to help balance the Vata dosha.
Pitta: may need to consume eggs in moderation. It is recommended to cook eggs with cooling spices like coriander, fennel, or mint to help balance the Pitta.
Kapha: eggs may not be the best choice, as they can be heavy and contribute to Kapha imbalances. Use more vegetables for this recipe or as a side dish. However, if consumed, they should be eaten in moderation and cooked with spices like black pepper, ginger, or turmeric to help balance Kapha dosha.
