Looking to Fit More Green Vegetables into Your Diet? Buy Bok Choy Seeds Online in Australia
If you are looking for a way to fit more green leafy vegetables into your diet—but don’t consider yourself a fan of some of the more ‘obvious’ options—then you might consider trying bok choy. This type of vegetable, which is known more commonly as ‘Chinese cabbage’—is crunchy and mild with a hint of sweetness. It is a popular ingredient in many Asian food dishes, but is versatile and can be enjoyed on its own as well. At Eden Seeds, we stock bok choy seeds in Australia and can help you add this healthy and easy-to-enjoy veggie to your home garden and into your diet.
What to Expect from Bok Choy?
You may be thinking something along the lines of ‘But I don’t like cabbage!’ However, while bok choy is technically a cabbage plant, it is different from the cabbage you have tried (and perhaps not loved) in the past. If you do buy bok choy seeds and start growing it in your garden, you will quickly discover that it does not look like other types of cabbage. Where most cabbage varieties form ‘heads’ when they grow, bok choy is a non-heading type of cabbage. Instead, it grows into clusters of smooth, large, oval shaped, green leaves.
If you buy bok choy seeds online from Eden Seeds, choose Choy Sum, which is the Hong Kong variety of the vegetable. We chose this seed specifically because it offers the best flavour. If you are someone who wants to eat more green vegetables but struggles with their taste or texture, try Choy Sum. Fantastic in stir fry dishes and Asian soups, as a complement to wild mushrooms or even on its own with olive oil, sea salt and garlic, the Choy Sum variety of bok choy might just be the green leafy vegetable that changes your mind about green leafy vegetables! (All the above also holds true if you have trouble getting your kids to eat their veggies.)
Buy Bok Choy Seeds for the Taste of the Crop; Stay for the Nutrition
Just because bok choy tastes fantastic and has a flavour that works well with a lot of other dishes doesn’t mean it doesn’t provide the nutrition that you have come to expect from green leafy vegetables. On the contrary, when you buy bok choy seeds and start growing your own crop at home, you can expect numerous nutritional benefits.
First off, bok choy is extremely low in calories—even lower than most other green veggies. If you are dieting to cut calories and lose weight but don’t want to sacrifice flavour, then bok choy could be the perfect vegetable for you. Secondly, bok choy is loaded with healthy nutrients, including but not limited to vitamin K (which is really good for bone health), vitamin C (which is super beneficial to the immune system) and vitamin B6 (which helps the body build neurotransmitters).
