Okra is a nutritious veggie with many health benefits. It’s rich in magnesium, folate, fiber, antioxidants, and vitamin C, K1, and A. Okra may benefit pregnant women, heart health, and blood sugar control. It may even have anticancer properties. 

One cup of okra only contains 33 calories, yet it has 10% of your daily-recommended levels of vitamin B6 and folic acid. It is also a good source of potassium and calcium and is high in antioxidants, fiber, and vitamin C. It is popularly used in dishes across the world and holds the title of being a superfood.

Peanuts are an excellent source of plant-based protein. Protein is essential for building and repairing body cells. The amount of protein a person needs varies, depending on their age and activity level. Peanuts are rich in monounsaturated and polyunsaturated fatty acids that lower heart disease risk. Studies have found eating peanuts five times a week decreased heart disease and reduced the risk of diabetes, gallbladder disease and colorectal cancer.
