Researchers think this could be due to amino acids and minerals in asparagus that protect liver cells from toxins. So if you overdid it on the margaritas (page 56), try one of the asparagus recipes on page 112.

Ree, what is the best way to store meals in the freezer to maximize shelf life? I use disposable foil pans wrapped in plastic and foil, but my food still tends to get freezer burn! Debbie Neville San Juan Capistrano, CA Air is the enemy when you’re storing food in the freezer.

And I wrap grilled chicken breasts individually in plastic wrap before putting them into a larger plastic bag.
