Avocado-asparagus cauliflower toast

Keep to the green theme by topping with antioxidant-rich pistachios.

“Asparagus is particularly high in glutathione, a detoxifying compound that helps break down carcinogens and free radicals,” says Lauren Blake, RD, a Columbus, Ohio-based recipe developer and founder of Whole Living Lauren. “It also contains asparagine, a natural diuretic, which helps your body release excess fluids and salt. For this reason, this toast is especially beneficial the morning after an indulgent night out.”
