I like to make my own spice blends, but then again I have a huge spice cabinet. So you can choose to make your own, or purchase it from the store.

The reason I like make my own is that I know there are no preservatives, I can control the salt, and again I have a lot of spices… so it’s free.

Nutrition and Calories in Air Fryer Asparagus

To figure out this nutrition label, I chose the Italian Seasoning and 1/2 teaspoon of salt. If you want to lower the salt, you can make any of the homemade seasoning recipes and omit the salt, or see above for the lemon pepper option that has no salt at all.

Depending on what kind of asparagus you get (thin, medium, thick) 1 pound will differ in how many stalks each serving is. So the best I can do here is tell you that the serving size is 1/4 pound, or 1/4 of the recipe.

Important Note: As a reminder, at Lose Weight By Eating the goal is to make healthier, all-natural versions of your favorite recipes… not all will be “diet worthy” depending on the diet you are on. But they will be healthier versions to help curb your cravings.
