Anyone know if it's OK to eat artichokes (the whole thing, minus the fuzzy stuff in the middle) while pregnant? I haven't been able to find any conclusive information on whether it's an okay food or not? I'd think the folate, fiber and vitamin C in them would be a plus?
Anyone know? (praying for a green light! I LOOOOOVE artichoke!!)
I've never heard anything about artichokes being unsafe during pregnancy. I know there's a whole bunch of things you should stay away from like deli meats, anything unpasturized, most soft cheeses, raw meat or fish, and of course alcohol but never heard anything about artichokes. I would just make sure to wash them off really well, just as you would any other fruit or vegetable. Good luck with the rest of your pregnancy!
I havent heard anything about artichokes being a no-no while pregger either... I would think they would be a great thing to eat, considering all the good stuff they have in them. You could always call your OB just to make sure if you are wary about them. I hope you get the green light too!
