I’ve found him in various places stealing mine!!
But Jack knows what’s good for him, and I’m willing to share….
So without further ado….Here is another added health Benefit of Okra:
Phytochemicals….Specifically Beta Carotene & Lutein.
Both extremely beneficial in Eye health. This Okra is super good stuff!!
So here’s how we got our Okra in today:
So my friend, Crismarie, who knows we are on an Okra challenge bought us some fresh Okra at the Asian Store. (I think I have seen fresh Okra at Walmart) I will check this week when shopping. At any rate you know She is a true friend when she buys you Okra….
So We’ve been reading about Okra water, and well, we are up for anything in this Okra Challenge! So today…We drank our Okra! Yep you read that right…and I liked it the best of anything so far.
Here is the link to what we read/watched. You soak 3-5 Okra overnight in a glass (trim off the ends & cut in half lengthwise)…then squeeze the Okra (leave the seeds in water for chugging) in the morning into the glass, remove the Okra and fill with fresh water. Then down the hatch!
It did not have much taste, actually it reminded me of Aloe Vera Juice. I found it very refreshing. It is a bit slimy (that super healthy mucilaginous fiber!) but it didn’t hinder me. Yep down the hatch it went!
Seriously you should give this a try….
