I'm a fan of keeping healthy things stocked in my pantry that are versatile and aid in getting dinner on the table, like... yesterday (as in ASAP). I always keep a can of marinated artichokes, marinated mushrooms, roasted red peppers, capers, and a variety of pesto in my cupboard. All these ingredients throw a huge flavor punch to any dish. They are great add-ins to pasta, rice, quinoa, and salads.
My most recent discovery though is one of my new favorites. I opened a jar of Reese Grilled and Marinated Artichoke Hearts to put a few on a salad but when I sampled one I decided I wasn't making my salad after-all and I ate the whole jar of artichoke hearts. The awesome thing is how nutritious artichokes are for you. Artichokes are a good source of potassium, vitamin C, folate, magnesium and dietary fiber. They are also a superb source of antioxidants in the form of phytonutrients helping with liver function and maybe even aid in curing hangover.
Give these Reese Grilled Marinated Artichoke Hearts a try. They have an awesome right-off-the-grill flavor and aren't too sweet or salty. They are void of added preservatives and other junk I don't allow in my pantry. They are delicious.
