Okra is popular in the UK, the Philippines and the US. In most English-speaking countries it is referred to as ‘Ladies’ fingers.’

It has an excellent nutritional value, and a cup of okra provides 30 calories, 2g protein, 3g fiber, 21mg vitamin C, 0.1 fat, 7.6g carbohydrates, 80mg folate and 60g magnesium. It is easily available throughout the whole year, and you will be amazed with its health benefits.

Okra is an extremely healthy vegetable, but you have to pick a healthy way to prepare it as well. Some people like it boiled, raw, pickled, fried and even stewed.


You will need 4 fresh okras. First, remove their ends, and slice them in half lengthwise. Then, soak the okras in 2-3 cups of water overnight.

We recommend you to drink the okra water every morning before your breakfast. This will help you cut off your cravings throughout the day.
