Thank you, parent of Honey, soon to get a new bonnet.

Avacado is musically non-denominational.
It works in every tune!

THANK YOU for the e-mail that you sent me. I agree that you will probably need to lay low on touchy subjects for awhile.

Steve, if you hoisted one every time someone here suggested it as a flu cure, you might wake up with one helluva hangover and wish it was only the flu.

Have you ever noticed that everything breaded and deep fried tastes the same? And if you dip it into a sauce, all you taste is sauce?

Fried okra I can do, the slimy boiled stuff gags me. Have you ever seen hagfish or slime eels? That's what boiled okra makes me think I'm eating. Bluu, 'cuse me. BRB

I happened across someone swearing that is you cut okra pods tops and bottoms off and set(loosely packed) them upright in a glass and filled the glass with water and let it set overnight, then in the AM drink the water next night repeat... don't know how many nights as I was already gagging./... that it would cure diabetes.
I think it might kill me first. ( from choking on the gagged stuff..)

LAST THING I WILL SAY BOUT OKRA, aka okrie....

Health benefits of Okra

The pods are among the very low calorie vegetables. They provide just 30 calories per 100 g besides containing no saturated fats or cholesterol. Nonetheless, they are rich sources of dietary fiber, minerals, and vitamins; often recommended by nutritionists in cholesterol controlling and weight reduction programs.

The rich fiber and mucilaginous content in okra pods help in smooth peristalsis of digested food particles and relieve constipation condition.

The pods contain healthy amounts of vitamin A, and flavonoid anti-oxidants such as beta carotenes, xanthin and lutein. It is one of the green vegetables with highest levels of these anti-oxidants. These compounds are known to have antioxidant properties and are essential for vision. Vitamin A is also required for maintaining healthy mucus membranes and skin. Consumption of natural vegetables and fruits rich in flavonoids helps to protect from lung and oral cavity cancers.

Fresh pods are the good source of folates; provide about 22% of RDA per 100 g. Consumption of foods rich in folates, especially during the pre-conception period helps decrease the incidence of neural tube defects in the offspring.

The gumbo pods are also an excellent source of anti-oxidant vitamin, vitamin-C, providing about 36% of daily-recommended levels. Research suggests that consumption of foods rich in vitamin-C helps the body develop immunity against infectious agents, reduce episodes of cold and cough and protect the body from harmful free radicals.

The veggies are rich in B-complex group of vitamins like niacin, vitamin B-6 (pyridoxine), thiamin and pantothenic acid. The pods also contain good amounts of vitamin K. Vitamin K is a co-factor for blood clotting enzymes and is required for strengthening of bones.

The pods are an also good source of many important minerals such as iron, calcium, manganese and magnesium.
