Bok choy is a type of Chinese cabbage that doesn't look like typical cabbage. Instead, it has dark green leaves connected to white stalks. One cup has just 9 calories and barely a trace of fat, yet delivers protein, dietary fiber and almost all the essential vitamins and minerals. This, according to Timaree Hagenburger, makes bok choy a nutrient-dense food that offers several health benefits.

Timaree is a registered dietitian with a master's degree in public health. She also is a nutrition professor at Cosumnes River College in Sacramento and a food lover who likes sharing tips and tricks on how to enjoy fresh California fruits and vegetables—such as bok choy.
