Artichokes

Artichokes as we know them are actually the buds of a purple flower that can grow more than 3 feet tall. Because of their tough exterior, artichokes take some careful preparation, but your efforts will reap nutritional rewards – artichokes are a good source of folate, dietary fiber, and vitamins C and K. Artichokes are also packed with antioxidants; in fact, they're number 7 on the USDA's top 20 antioxidant-rich foods list. Studies have shown that artichokes can help regulate gallbladder and liver functions, as well as aid in digestion and lower LDL (bad) cholesterol.
