Bok Choy

If you like cabbage you should try its Chinese cousin, bok choy. It can be eaten raw in salads, or in soups and stir fries. Simply remove the leaves from the stalks and cut the stalks into pieces before cooking. It has a mild flavor and only 10 calories for a half cup when served raw. 10 calories? That's right, 10 calories! Good and good for you because it's also loaded with Vitamins A and C, calcium, and beta carotene, those powerful cancer-fighting agents.

Pictured here is bok choy fresh from the fields. Notice the white stalks, and the leaves are firm and green. Bok choy will stay fresh when stored in plastic bag in refrigerator for 3 days.
