Okra – Ladies Finger

Fresh Okra, Nokia N72

Okra is widely used in the Middle East, South Asia and in the southern States of the United States.

The fiber in Okra stabilises blood sugar. It is rich in folic acid and silicon. It binds bile acid carrying toxins, improves elimination and it’s mucilage soothes the intestinal tract. It also works as a prebiotic and feeds good bacteria. It is very alkaline and helps to neutralize acids. It helps maintain smooth and beautiful skin. Cleopatra apparantly loved okra. It is a supreme vegetable for those feeling weak, exhausted and suffering depression. It is best cooked as little as possible.

I love it raw in my salads or raw soups. It adds a wonderful soft crunch. Try it out and experience raw okra.

Have a crunchy day.
