Besides being a very rich source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, and folate, okra is also a good source of calcium, potassium, vitamin A, and flavonoid #antioxidants such as beta-carotene. In addition, okra is totally fat and cholesterol free. You can reap the full nutritional benefits of okra by consuming it in whole or juiced form. In whole form it can most certainly stand alone.
Okra can also be added to just about any food preparation including soups, stews, salads, and stir-fried preparation. I prefer to eat fresh okra with tomatoes and beets or steamed okra with collard greens. How do you like yours?
