Okra, ladies’ finger or bhindi (in Hindi) is my all time favorite vegetable. Today, when I was cutting this vegetable to prepare fried okra for breakfast, it reminded me of an old post of mine that I posted in 2019.
I would just like to add that post here so that my new friends can have a look at it. Please go through this old post of mine too.
As we all know that green vegetables are loaded with micro and macronutrients and provide us with all the nutrients required for the human body to fight against diseases.
Similarly, this green vegetable is also rich in phytonutrients. Many people also enjoy eating it raw when it is young and soft. The sticky juice and edible seeds separates this vegetable from others. The whole vegetable can be eaten raw or after cooking.
Nutritional Benefits of Okra:
Many studies have shown that okra are rich in iron, vitamins, fiber and antioxidants. Okra helps in reducing weight, maintaining healthy heart, and overall health of the body.
Some studies also link okra in treating diabetes and constipation. Ke tin present is okra is also used in treating and preventing cancer.
So next time when you go for buying vegetables do not overlook these green vegetables that are loaded with nutrients. I am thinking of writing a detailed post on the benefits of this vegetable soon.
