Okra is a terrific vegetable emblematic of the deep South, and fried okra is a great way to enjoy it. It is the vegetable used to make gumbo, a fabulous southern stew. Okra is an excellent vegetable to eat, high in vitamin C and K, among other vitamins. It has a unique fiber element, which helps you digest food and stabilize blood sugar. Like many high fiber foods that means it also helps you to absorb sugar more slowly, avoiding the sugar high that can occur when you eat too much sugar in any one dish. Fried okra is just one more great way to serve a fabulous vegetable.

Eat okra often if you can, and it is available in your area. It is a very nutritious food and one that goes well with everything. Be sure when you fry up the okra that you make it with chipotle, so it is a little bit smoky when you eat it.
