Seasonal Love Letters: Summer professes love to Okra Hi Summer! Hi Okra! So nice to see that you are becoming more popular and available in an array of markets! Looks like your lubricating slime is less of an issue. People are seeing you for who you really are. A cool, sweet tasting, moisturizing softy. You are all about providing friendly bacteria, coating the digestive track and relieving constipation (which I know is one of my side effects)—yay! I love how I harmonize with your astringent taste. The earth and air elements of this taste make you heavy, yet light—filling and yet, energizing. It’s more fun to frolic under the sunlight and enjoy my warm nights without the hangry.
A natural anti-biotic. A daily vitamin. An immunity booster. A cold remedy. A cough remedy. A concentrate for tea. A reducer of inflammation. A blood purifier.
