If you start with 14 oz of raw asparagus, you’ll end up with four servings. Each serving has 40 calories (half of which are fat from the olive oil), total carbohydrates 4 g, fiber 2.2 g, and digestible carb 1.8 g.
Eight oz of Brussels sprouts yields two servings. Each serving has 70 calories, total carbs 10.3 g, fiber 4.4 g, and digestible carb 5.9 g.
