Marion,

Thanks for these articles on nutrition. They do help support that nutrition and diet can be a positive or negative influence in the approach to dealing with cancer.

Marion and Carl...finally something I love and can eat....artichokes. I wonder if that means I can cook them and then dip them in garlic butter?? I could eat one daily. Celery is hard on me but maybe if I peel it I can do it. Very interesting article.

Honestly, I don't like Artichokes. I think it only provides an excuse for eating garlic butter.  Might have been wrong all along though.
Lisa, what do you stuff the artichokes with?

Never tasted an artichoke before, do they taste good? Might have to go and try one now.

Thanks for this Marion!

Marion,
I pull some of the the outer leaves off, peel the stem a bit and cut the thorny tops off. Then, I mix bread crumbs, fresh chopped parsley, and grated Parmesan cheese and stuff it into the artichoke leaves. I place them in a pan with about two inches of water and drizzle them with olive oil, put the lid on the pan and steam till tender. Lastly, I make a vinegarette to dip the leaves in.

Garlic is a winner. It is classified as a superfood. Maybe saute the artichokes with the garlic - no garlic butter.

Re: Celery, Artichokes Contain Flavonoids That Kill Human Pancreatic Cance

Mmmmm LOVE Garlic which is why my little Sicilian and I got along so well! Just need to stock up on mouth wash and Acid reducers! LOL

Re: Celery, Artichokes Contain Flavonoids That Kill Human Pancreatic Cance

Lisa, that sounds delish! When you steam them they're in a colander right (not right in the water)? I LOVE artichokes any way shape or form. Never heard of stuffing them!

Gavin,
Im curious that youve never tried artichokes... Are artichokes not grown or avail in Scotland? I live near a major growing area along the northern CA coast so grew up eating them.  if you do try to cook a fresh artichoke, google directions because they take longer than you'd think to steam. Lisas recipe sounds great! And definitely tastes good dipping leaves in lemon garlic butter, lemon mayonnaise or balsamic dressing as Lisa mentioned. Theyre good grilled too. Although I love preserved marinated artichokes too, they taste different than fresh.
