Artichokes are Chock-full of Benefits

1374Packed with nutritional benefits, artichokes can boost your immune system, lower your cholesterol, and protect you from diseases such as heart attack and stroke. Artichokes are great detoxifiers and can improve your liver’s health. They aid in digestion too, improving issues such as constipation, indigestion, and diarrhea. Artichokes will provide your body with folate, magnesium, potassium, copper, and vitamins C and K.*

To steam artichokes, fill a saucepan with an inch of water, insert a streamer basket, and bring water to a boil. After trimming the artichokes, reduce the heat to low, place them in your streamer basket, and cover for 20 minutes. When an outer leaf can be pulled off with ease, the artichokes are ready!
