Roasted Bok Choy

Bok Choy – The Forgotten Super Food.

Bok Choy is a  Chinese food and medicine favorite  that has been used for centuries. It is common in Chinese cooking but often overlooked in the United States. Bok Choy is loaded with body healing nutrition and some believe it can help fight cancer. In a study by the Vanderbilt-Ingram Cancer Center and the Shanghai Center for Disease Control and Prevention showed that eating dark, leafy green vegetables such as bok choy may improve breast cancer survival.

Nutrient dense

Bok Choy contains vitamins C, A, and K, Bok Chow contains large amounts of calcium, magnesium, potassium, manganese, and iron. Bok Choy deserves its reputation as a powerhouse among vegetables. Vitamin A, for instance, is essential for a properly functioning immune system, while vitamin C is an antioxidant that shields the body from free radicals. Bok choy supplies potassium for healthy muscle and nerve function, and vitamin B6 for carbohydrate, fat, and protein metabolism. (Source – Dr. Mercola)

A 100g serving of Bok Choy contains 1 net carbohydrate and 13 calories. Bok Choy is certainly worth another look when you are at the grocery store.  Bok Choy tastes similar to Brussels Sprouts and Cabbage. In fact it is in the cabbage family after all. For hundreds of years people have been using Bok Choy to make Kimchi, a spicy fermented cabbage.
