Bok Choy!

Boy Choy growingLast Sunday at the Tyngsboro Farmers Market at least two people stopped by our tent and while chatting about Neurostructural care, browsed through our copy of World’s Healthiest Foods

Both of them learned about bok choy and proceeded to head over to Kirk Farm’s tent to purchase some for themselves. Bok choy is a nutrient rich vegetable, an excellent source of Vitamin K, C, A, Potassium, Folate, Vitamin B6, Calcium, and Manganese.  Along with those nutrients bok choy has a wide range of antioxidants which means that bok choy is considered to be an anti-inflammatory food.  More from the book can be found here.

Boy choy is a great addition to stir fries and served with minimal preparation sauteed.  To prepare bok choy, rinse in cold water just prior to cutting.  After cutting, let sit for at least 5 minutes, then cook.  Avoid over cooking.
