Sweet and Spicy



The main star of this recipe is bok choi, the cruciferous leafy green vegetable full of protein and fiber and low in calories. Bok choy is a member of the cabbage family and is one of the highest nutritionally ranked vegetables! Bok choy provides good, very good, or excellent amounts of 21 nutrients- including beta carotine, omega 3s and zinc! Another stand out vegetable in this recipe is cabbage. Cabbage contains sinigrin which is a glucosinolate- a compound shown to have cancer preventative elements! And the best part is it only works when the cabbage is raw- as it is in this salad. Top those nutritional powerhouses with some sweet mango which also has many cancer preventative compounds as well as cholesterol lowering compounds, digestive enzymes and a plethora of vitamins, and you have one heck of a nutritious salad! Never mind that it also tastes amazing :-)
