What’s In This Healthy Artichoke Dip?
Leave it to a cartoon character to put spinach on the map. Kudos to you, Popeye the Sailor Man, because spinach is now associated with impressive, healthy physiques, and for good reason! Spinach is jam-packed with nutrients and antioxidants, and, if I do say so myself, and I do, it’s one of the most delicious of the greens. Spinach contains fiber, which leaves your digestive system feeling calm, cool, and collected—and not constipated! Yay! These lovely leaves also contain important vitamins and minerals, including vitamin A, vitamin C, folic acid, and iron, and calcium. Spinach is also great for eye health because it contains zeaxanthin and lutein. Zeaxanthin and lutein are found in high amounts in the human eye, because they protect your eyes from damage caused by the sun (1). I could go on and on about spinach, like how it can also help with blood pressure, or how it helps fight oxidative stress, but I think you get the picture. It’s no wonder why I put spinach at the forefront of this healthy spinach dip!
Okay spinach, you’ve had your moment, let’s talk about artichoke for a minute, the second star of this healthy artichoke dip. Okay, I want you to brace yourself, I’m about to change everything you thought you knew about the world. No I’m just kidding, just about artichokes, but seriously, this is kind of crazy. Artichoke is actually not a vegetable. I’ll give you a moment to let that sink in…
…okay I’m back, how are you feeling? Contrary to popular belief, artichokes are actually not a veggie, they are a type of thistle. Think of them as a plant vegetable, if you will. If I’m the only one who was blown away by this information, please disregard my previous paragraph so I’m not embarrassed. 🤣 Artichokes are loaded with nutrients, including vitamin C, vitamin K, folate, potassium, and zinc, just to name a few. Artichokes also improve digestive health, may improve liver health, and most importantly, taste insanely delicious (2). Add it to your healthy spinach artichoke dip and you’ve a recipe for health success!
