Slow Cooker or Stove-top Lemon Infused Artichoke

Reading Time: 2 minutes
The next Whole Life Challenge starts in:

I don’t know about you, but I find it easy to fall into a veggie rut. With each season, the same eating patterns develop: the same veggies and same salads.

So last year, I decided to throw one new veggie per season into the mix. This fall, I chose the mighty artichoke. The artichoke is full of antioxidants, fiber, and bone and metabolic support.

New Call-to-action

But given its appearance, the artichoke can be a little intimidating to prepare for yourself. So here is an easy-to-make version that can be done in the slow cooker or on the stove-top. Either way, you end up with a great veggie that can be enjoyed with ceremonial eating like picking crabs. Yum fun!
