A girlfriend of mine loves Okra very much and would buy lots of it each time she goes to the market. She says it's good for her joints. She used to be a dancer until she had joint pains. Her doctor told her she must apply glucosamine cream on her joints to lessen the pain. I wonder how she's doing now. Haven't seen her for quite some time already. I love Okra too. My MIL steams some for us each week. I think she's also cooking it for the same benefits. Do you like Okra? If you haven't eaten Okra before, you may want to buy some from the market tomorrow morning and steam it with some chopped garlic and soy sauce.
