Ingredients:
• 1 bunch asparagus [1lb], washed, ends snapped off + cut in half
• 1c coarse ground raw millet [about 3/4c of the way blended to flour]
• 1c raw millet flour [ground in blender]
• ¼ cup grated parmesan cheese
• 1T dried oregano
• 2t dried basil
• 1t dried thyme
• 2t dried rosemary, finely chopped
• 3/4t garlic powder
• olive oil [to lightly spray before baking]
• s+p
• 1 egg white + 1 whole large egg [*or 2 flax eggs for vegan version]


Directions:
1. Preheat your oven to 400*
2. Line 1-2 baking sheets with foil, and place a wire rack [if oven safe] on top. Lightly coat with cooking spray.
3. Whisk eggs or flax "eggs" in a bowl that is big enough to dip the half spears.
4. On a plate or in a large bowl, mix millet flour + coarse ground millet together with the oregano, basil, thyme, rosemary + garlic powder. [salt + pepper will be sprinkled on before baking]
5. Dip the spears in the egg [whichever kind you're using] and let the excess drip off.
6. Roll in the millet + herb crumbs, then place on the wire rack. Repeat until all are coated.
7. Lightly spray the spears with olive oil and generously sprinkle salt + pepper on top. [If you can't spray the olive oil on, ever-so-gently brush it on with a pastry brush]
8. Bake for about 20min until golden brown. You can always give one a taste-test to determine if you want them to cook longer.
*Best if eaten right out of the oven.

Wellness Tip
Restless Leg Syndrome
Restless Leg Syndrome (RLS) is a disorder that has been making big headlines lately. At rest, the sufferer's legs often feel uncomfortable, and he/she may have a very strong urge to move. If you think you may have RLS, see a health care provider; don't diagnose yourself. Once they have ruled out other conditions and diagnosed you with RLS, it can be managed. Techniques include taking a warm bath before bedtime, sleeping on your side with a pillow between your knees, and avoiding both alcohol and caffeine, especially before going to bed.

Vitamin D
In northern climates vitamin D deficiency is common due to the fact that the sun’s rays are angled to such an extent that the UVB portion of these rays is filtered out. In the Canadian winter we produce virtually no Vitamin D, even if we do expose our skin to the sun (not likely!).
