Bok choy is such an incredible vegetable, as part of the cruciferous vegetable family it has incredible disease prevention capabilities.
Bok choy also contains vitamin K, vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium, folate, calcium, vitamin B6, manganese, iron, vitamin B2, fibre, phosphorus, protein, magnesium, choline, vitamin B3, vitamin B1, zinc and copper. It is also a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory making it such a fabulous vegetable! We like to serve bok choy sautéed with a bunch of other greens or by itself with a touch of Tamari and coconut oiled serving with your protein source of choice. Alternatively, we have a bok choy salad which is delicious especially in summer when salads are key! Bok choy salad
