April is peak artichoke season, meaning there's plenty of opportunity to get these fresh, antioxidant rich veggies! Artichokes contain a high amount of fiber, which is essential for maintaining a healthy digestive system. The fiber in artichokes promotes regular bowel movements and can help prevent constipation. Artichokes also contain compounds that have been shown to promote liver health by protecting the liver from damage and supporting the liver's natural detoxification processes. The easiest way to prepare artichokes is to trim off the top quarter of the artichoke and the stem. Then, cut the artichoke in half and scoop out the fuzzy choke with a spoon. Place the artichoke halves in a pot with enough water to cover them and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and let the artichokes simmer for 20-30 minutes or until the leaves pull off easily. Serve with a side of melted butter, ghee or aioli for dipping. #artichokes #artichokeseason #digestivehealth #digestion #digestivesystem #digestive #healthyfood #health #healthcare #fiber #recepies #vegetables #veggies #vegetarian #antioxidants #detoxification #liverhealth #liver Are you a fan of artichoke?
