Spotted these beauties in the fabulous Old Spitalfields Market. Did you know artichokes are one of the top vegetables for levels of antioxidants?
Antioxidants are an important part of improving memory function. They help protect cells from free-radical damage. In this way, eating foods high in antioxidant is an easy way to improve cognitive skills and slow brain aging. How can you tell whether a fruit or veg is high in antioxidants? By its colour! Dark coloured fruit and veg tend to have the highest levels, so make sure to reach for broccoli, blueberries, cranberries, blackberries spinach, plums, and these beautiful artichokes!
