Okra is an incredibly nutritious plant native to North-East Africa. It is also known as “lady’s finger”, and due to its fibrous fruits, or “pods”, it is cultivated in all warm and tropical areas in the world.
A single cup of raw okra has a little over 30 calories, about 3 grams of dietary fiber, 2 grams of protein, 7.6 grams carbohydrates, 0.1 grams of fat, 21 milligrams of vitamin C, around 88 micrograms of folate, and 57 milligrams of magnesium. This makes okra a nutrition hero and a very available food when it comes to our health.
Okra can be consumed throughout the entire years, either fried, boiled, stewed or pickled.
