Have You Tried: Artichoke Hearts?

artichoke hearts
Fresh artichokes are a classic spring treat, but you can enjoy artichoke hearts all year long.

What Are Artichoke Hearts?
Buried within the rough leaves of an artichoke, is the sweet and tender “heart.” These little treasures have a buttery texture and earthy flavor that you can deepen with olive oil and garlic or liven up with a squirt of fresh lemon. You can find them bagged and frozen, canned in water or jarred, marinated in olive oil and spices. The oil-packed ones are a little higher in healthy fat but draining the oil will help save some calories.

Healthy Attributes
Artichoke hearts are low in fat and calories but overflowing with fiber. They also offer up a healthy dose of potassium, vitamin C and antioxidants that help detoxify the body.
