Grilled Asparagus - Dukan Diet

You can't really see them, but the fresh grilled asparagus
are behind the quiches
Last week the female half of this couple's sister read on a gentleman's Dukan Diary Blog that he just loved asparagus for it's diuretic abilities.  We decided to give it a try.

Saw some very nice looking skinny asparagus in Chinatown in Honolulu this past weekend!  (We don't care for the large Costco ones although very inexpensive for what you get, they just aren't as tasty as the skinnier ones).

After we got them home, we realized the way we usually bake these (in butter) is not allowed on the Dukan Diet.  So, we decided to pan fry them with a little bit of salt, pepper and lemon juice for about 3 minutes (until they were bright green) and were they delicious.  Also, the female half of this couple had asparagus for lunch on Monday and Tuesday (had to double up on PV days this week) and she's lost 2 pounds since Sunday!  Coincidence or is she enjoying the diuretic value of asparagus also?  Could also be the 45 minutes of zumba every day?  In any case, the asparagus was delicious, both grilled and in the mini quiches.
