HealthiNation Diabetes Bites: Stuffed Artichokes

May 1, 2018

 

Artichokes are one of my all time favorite vegetables (read more about my obsession about the King of Winter Vegetables here), I grew up eating all ways (I love me a good Stuffed Artichoke see here too!)  and they are a staple in Mediterranean cuisine! This slightly bitter bud is that it is high in antioxidants (silymarin, caffeic acid, and ferulic acid) and full of some great heart-healthy fiber. Its fiber content makes it perfect for heart health, but also manages your blood sugar levels! Great for digestion and a natural diuretic to help rid your body of toxins, the artichoke has bitter principles--cynarin and sesquiterpene--lactones that also lowers cholesterol in the body. 

 

Paired with homemade stuffing using whole wheat bread, Parmesan cheese, garlic and herbs and you've got a perfect side dish to keep you (and your blood sugar) satisfied!  Head over to HealthiNation to watch the full video & recipe here!
