There is something about artichokes that I really love. Maybe it’s the salty brine? Or the soft and yet al- dente texture (soft on the inside and somewhat al dente on the outside)? I’m not sure what it is, by I like them. Did you know that artichokes are full of prebiotic fiber (also known as the food for your good bacteria)? Therefore they can benefit the health of your intestines and gut. Of course, for someone like me with IBS, foods like artichokes can sometimes cause stomach pain (I know, it doesn’t make sense, does it?). For that reason, I typically avoid eating a lot in one sitting, but one or two can’t hurt (well, most of the time).
