Artichoke that is! If you’ve never prepared this delicious vegetable, you’ve been missing out. It’s not a choke, I’m serious! Packed with nutrients and fun to eat, the artichoke is a must for all CrossFitters’ nutrition. Click the pic for detail.
Step 1: Wash the artichoke in warm water
Step 2: Trim the tips of each leaf and cut down the stem to about an inch and a half long.
Step 3: Boil until a fork can be easily inserted into the stem without resistance.
Step 4: Peel leaf by leaf and scrape the flesh from the point of connection from the leaf with your teeth.
I like to dip mine in melted Ilios Greek Yogurt Butter! Once you get down to the ‘heart’, Be SURE to scrape the spikes off before consuming. Eat up!
