Bok choy is in fact a type of cabbage but develops thick white crisp stems (celery-like) with green tender leaves. It is much higher in calcium than other varieties of cabbage. It is excellent in stir-fries.
I've battled with Chronic Fatty Liver Disease, an Autoimmune Thyroid Disease (Hashimoto's), Arthritis and digestive issues for many years. I decided to conduct my own research on what food choices could help my conditions. These choices culminate under what is termed a Paleo Lifestyle. I live in Perth, Western Australia with my husband of over 45 years. I'm the author of The JOYful Table cookbook.
