An Asian specialty, a half-cup of cooked bok choy is about 20 calories(~84 kJ’s), but offers a mammoth 144 percent of your daily requirement of vitamin A and 74 percent of vitamin C. The leaves and stalks are also loaded with calcium, magnesium, potassium and folate.

So why not throw some bok choy in your next stir-fry or steam it and drizzle with olive oil.

Eat well & be well.
