#2 Artichoke

These beautiful vegetable flowers are amazingly filling and they are inexpensive right now because they are in season! This power food is often times overlooked…but thank goodness I have the skinny for you: Artichokes contain inulin which a type of carbohydrate that has been shown to decrease the hunger hormone ghrelin. They also have active compounds called caffeoylquinic acids or cynarin- which are super liver friendly.  These compounds are such show offs- preventing the build-up of fat and toxins in the liver, reducing gallstone formation during weight loss, promoting growth of beneficial bacteria in the intestines and acting as a gentle laxative by increasing bile secretion. Are you sold yet? I am.
