About Artichokes

Artichokes contain more disease-fighting antioxidants than any other vegetable...more than blueberries and red wine.

They are natural detoxifiers that improve immunity and help prevent disease by lowering inflammation. The cynarin and silymarin (liver-nourishing phytonutrients) boost bile production for better vitamin absorption and fat metabolism. Research has also linked this veggie to lower cholesterol and reduced symptoms of irritable bowel syndrome.

1 medium artichoke contains 7 grams of fiber (more than half a cup of prunes) and about 60 calories, vitamins C and K, magnesium, folate and potassium for muscle, bone and heart health.

Long stemmed artichokes have more heart and baby artichokes are missing the inedible center choke. Fresh is best for taste and health (Globe are most common) as canned or jar versions most likely have added fats, salt and preservatives.  Frozen is a close second to fresh.

There are many ways to eat this wonderfully beneficial veggie: Stuff the hearts into a paninis, add to pasta and pizza or dip the meaty leaves into guacamole, salsa or hummus.

Choose artichokes that feel heavy and firm and store them in a plastic bag in the crisper.

Here is a very good video on how to prepare artichokes and here are some recipes for you :)
