Bok Choy – New Vegetable of the Week

Vegetable of the WeekA couple of weeks ago I went out of town to a conference and tried some vegetables that I thought I didn’t like.  That inspired me to try some new vegetables.  One of my big goals in my fitness journey is to eat at least five servings of vegetables a day.  Some days I meet that goal and other days it is a challenge.  I have to make a conscious effort throughout the day to make sure I get those servings.

I was inspired by another Beachbody coach who posted a bok choy recipe on Facebook.  My husband and I both liked it.  The kids thought it was just so-so.  I will be adding to the vegetables I serve for my family.  Maybe my kids will grow to like it better but I’m O.K. with it if they just tolerate it.

Bok choy is a type of cabbage and is a part of many Chinese dishes.  It doesn’t look much like a cabbage.  It is high in Vitamin A, Vitamin C and calcium and is low in calories.  I prepared it with some sesame oil, pepper, ground ginger and a splash of orange juice at the end.  The flavor was very mild.  I’m glad I thought ahead and made extra so that I can take some to work.

What are your favorite vegetables?  Maybe your favorite will be my favorite someday!
