Maja blanca is one of the classic Filipino desserts. It’s commonly misinterpreted as a “coconut pudding” because of the white-colored pudding.

  • This video helped me so much!!! You should turn this into a series the next one could be “10 Ways to eat more protein without Eating meat!” or something like this:) I really struggle with my protein intake as I don’t eat meat on a regular basis and I feel like a video like this could really help. Because I do love my meals the way they are now and all the other macros are great, but when it comes to protein… This girl is struggling… ������

  • You are wrong. Those are different, one is not the baby form of the other. The one on the left is usually called bok choy whereas the one on the right commonly referred to as Shanghaiese bok choy. The Shanghaiese bok choy is a sub-spiece of bok choy. By weight, it has 40% more vitamin C and also some B1 and B2; at the same time it does not contain as much other metalic element as the bak choy on the left. Personally, I like the bok choy on the right much more and never eat the one of the left other than making soup.

  • Another way to add more greens is through tacos, wraps, and burritos. It’s the perfect way to eat a portable meal packed with vitamins.

  • I found the calorie focus completely irrelevant. Would have made more sense to focus on the vitamins since that was what the voiceover was about

  • Thank you for breaking down this vegetable. Saw it for the first time at Walmart and was intrigued by it. It looks like a combination of romaine lettuce and celery. Looking forward to seeing what it tastes like soon.

  • Genesis 1:29:30 Then God said: “Here I have given to you every seed-bearing plant that is on the entire earth and every tree with seed-bearing fruit. Let them serve as food for you And to every wild animal of the earth and to every flying creature of the heavens and to everything moving on the earth in which there is life, I have given all green vegetation for food.” And it was so.

  • I’m wanting to learn how to eat clean. I have yet to try bok choy, and thanks t your video I am anxious to do so! Thank you sweet lady!!

  • I have dealt with severe IBS-D since a child. Currently on Keto but leaning heavily towards Carnivore. How much magnesium, as well as what kind do you recommend?(as magnesium has never been my friend… regarding the diarrhea.). I have used topical magnesium fairly successfully, (bypassing my gut) but can not gage how much magnesium I am actually absorbing. Plus with using larger amounts, it can be quite irritating on my skin, causing additional issues… to the point of frequently having to completely stop its use until I heal. This is one ( of many ) reasons I continue ingesting the dark leafy greens. What are your thoughts and suggestions for me? Thank you so very much.

  • Yum!! This might seem weird but I finely chop spinach (and if I’ve got it a little cilantro mint or basil too), and stir that into cooked rice (or quinoa). It stays raw but very slightly wilts which takes off the bitter edge and it bulks up carbs nicely so you get a bigger portion for barely any extra calories and get the added nutrients too (and added flavor if you add the herbs).

  • it’s interesting, that in Mandarin, we call this kind of vegetable “Qingcai” which means green veggie. and the sound Bok Choy in Chinese actually means white veggies, which is actually cabbage.

  • I absolutely LOVE the idea of putting greens in my salad dressing!! That is awesome! I am going to confess here…I always buy a huge bag of spinach and kale and I end up throwing it out because it goes bad before I eat it! Ugh! My fault though because I never know what to do with it all except to put it on a salad! I am making the “green sandwich” for lunch tomorrow for my boyfriend and I after our gym workout! So excited to try that!!! Thank you for all of your suggestions! As always, much love!!

  • We do not need 5 servings of fruit a day! That’s way too much fructose which is hard on the liver. One serving of berries is plenty.

  • we call it patchoi in Trinidad. Love it. Its not the frost that makes it sweet and crispy though, its the amount of water it gets and the type of soil. If growing salts (minerals) are used when the plant is young the result will be better.

  • The problem is not that people need to eat more low calorie foods. they just need to count how many calories they eat which is super easy just do it in ur head

  • YEAH!!!! VERY INTERESTING VIDEO!!!…. I really love this!!!!…. Thanks for these recipes my friend and hello from PARIS…. FRANCE!!!! ��������������������

  • Arugula has way more nitrients then iceberg…so iceberg shouldn’t b on the list at all, yet its in front if Arugula…unbelievable…

  • What blender do you use? I have a crappy blender and I’ve followed tips online but my green smoothies are always gritty, never smooth and I end up throwing it out.

  • I thought of your pumpkin lasagna which I think you put a layer of spinach in. Really any casserole could benefit from adding hearty greens or broccoli, etc. Thanks for all the great ideas!

  • I’ve been googling/Pinteresting exactly this the last week! Thanks for reading my mind! A fellow Canadian who knows I don’t necessarily want a salad in this cold weather! �� ��

  • I just made eggs with baby spinach for the first time and kale chips my kids looked at me like I was insane when I asked them to eat some…

  • Normally I’ll just cook bok Choy with sliced mushrooms, and don’t forget to add SUGAR within. (Also Salt lol) This is literally how my family in shanghai cook bok Choy!

  • Macular Degeneration runs heavily in my family. I cling to the dark leafy greens for this reason, to ensure I get adequate magnesium, (since taking it by mouth sets off diarrhea in me)… plus, I confess, I do love them. But still, my mom was legally blind from this disease, and eating those greens are highly encouraged as a preventative. How, specifically, would I be able to ensure to cover all my preventative nutrition bases while eating carnivore, that would prove protective from Macular Degeneration? I really do not just want to take my chances… yet I see so many benefits of carnivore. I do appreciate any suggestions as well as any insights you could point out.
    —The struggle is real. Thanks!

  • I love these ideas!! I’m a huge greens and veggies eater as it is, but i love making it the primary of what i eat, and getting more in wherever possible. I love that all of these can be eaten during pregnancy too!

  • Arugula has way more nitrients then iceberg…so iceberg shouldn’t b on the list at all, yet its in front if Arugula…unbelievable…

  • Perhaps this is redundant, but I add spinach to all pasta sauces…red or white, cut in bite-sized ribbons, during the last few minutes, so they don’t get overcooked. Made chips with Chinese cabbage tonight! Going to try adding it to hummus and salad dressings now! Want to try the lemon ginger dressing too. thanks for sharing your creativity!

  • Mabey if people stopped starving themselves because they don’t want to be fat they would have a slower matablism and have better resaults

  • I have really been enjoying book choy as of late. I purchased some gluten free ramen noodles and make a delicious soup with b.c., onions, ginger, garlic and chicken broth. Then add in the noodles and chopped cooked chicken. I add some salt and pepper to taste, and also some cayenne for a little heat. This soup will last me for several dayssooo yummy

  • Thank you for the informative video, but I couldn’t stop staring at how uneven your eye liner is. It is way thicker on your left eye.

  • Thank you! We eat the Trim Healthy Mama way and also use their homeschool curriculum. This week, we picked Bok Choy to try! This is one vegetable we have never eaten and didn’t even know where to begin! Your video made it easy for us to learn how to pick a fresh one, store it, and cook! Awesome video!

  • Normally I’ll just cook bok Choy with sliced mushrooms, and don’t forget to add SUGAR within. (Also Salt lol) This is literally how my family in shanghai cook bok Choy!

  • Take it with a grain of salt pun intended cabbage and kale form thyroids too fast and could cause thyroid cancer if eaten in excess but then again what can’t give you cancer
