Artichokes

Detoxing is what humans are designed to do in Spring. We eat more in winter in an attempt to keep the cold at bay, and we shed the accumulated toxins and excess weight in Spring. Mother Nature knows this, and so she gives us artichokes in Spring. Artichokes are full of natural beneficial chemicals, including cynarin and silymarin. Both of these compounds support the liver and the gallbladder in doing their jobs, cleansing the body of toxic stuff. Artichokes also help stabilize blood sugar levels, so they’re great for people with diabetes and hyperglycaemia. As you can see from the photo of this beautiful artichoke in my garden, they are basically the flowers of the most enormous thistles. The plant is pretty mean looking and gigantic, so the space to produce ratio is fairly slim. But boy, do they taste good!
