Potato and Artichoke Tart

Potato and Artichoke Tart

Since we all tend to break our diet rules around the holiday season, it's time to our bodies a favour before December approaches. Artichokes - the little vegitable that could. According to Elements4Health: "Artichokes are an excellent source of dietary fiber, magnesium, and the trace mineral chromium. They are a very good source of vitamin C.... niacin, riboflavin, thiamin, vitamin A, and potassium".
