Our local organic purple bok choy is a unique, winter half-hardy vegetable. Also known as Chinese cabbage, this beautiful superfood packs in a ton of nutrients. One, in particular, is carotenoids. Carotenoids are antioxidants that your body converts to vitamin A when your levels are low. If your vitamin A levels are not low, the antioxidants will zoom around and attack free radicals.
Leafy greens are so important in supporting a healthy immune system, which is critical as we enter the winter season. The amount of vitamin C within bok choy adds an additional immunity-boosting benefit. Eat organic purple bok choy leaves raw in a salad, steam them as a side dish, dip the stalks like you would celery, or chop up the leaves and stalks to toss into a stir fry.
Local organic traditional bok choy is also available in the produce section.
