What happens if you eat the "choke" of an artichoke?

I mean the hair and all. I didn't know that the insides couldnt be eaten. I ate the bottom of the leaves and the whole choke. Then I looked up how to eat an artichoke and now im worried that I ate it. So what will happen..? im also 31 weeks pregnant

  • Nothing will happen. The "hair" and the spikes shouldn't be eaten primarily because of texture and normally they are removed in cooking. But they will NOT hurt you or the baby, so relax.

  • Actually the heart is underneath all that and it's the best part. But how did you eat all that other stuff? It gets so bitter and funny tasting?
