To eat an artichoke you will need to remove most of its stem and cut away its scale and thorns. Sounds challenging but it is worth trying. Odd-looking artichoke is rich in dietary fiber, protein and it is a mine of valuable antioxidants.

As to fiber, artichokes are listed as a good source of this nutrient in the Dietary Guidelines for Americans 2005 by USDA.

You can eat as much artichokes as you like in every phase except the Attack Phase and the PP days in Cruise Phase. Very recommended.

Artichokes (Raw) Nutrition Data →

Artichokes are very rich in dietary fiber. One cooked artichoke (of 120 grams / 4.2 oz) provides about 13 grams of fiber. The dietary fiber contents in raw artichoke is even higher. Moreover, artichokes are good sources of Vitamin C, Calcium and Iron.
