L-o-v-e this combo - had to share!

You will need: 

Bok Choy (baby or regular)

Orange Pepper

3 dates

1 tsp avocado oil or coconut oil

Celtic salt and ground pepper to taste

 

Prepare a saute pan with the avocado or coconut oil on medium-low heat.

 

Wash the bok choy and orange pepper.  Chop up the greens so they look like this, minus the thick stem part, and cut the orange pepper in strips. Make sure all the dirt is off.

 

First saute the orange pepper strips for around 4 minutes. While that is cooking, chop the dates. Add the bok choy and chopped dates until the leaves are bright green and slightly wilted. (It is very similar to spinach.)

 

Top with fresh lemon, lime or orange zest and enjoy this dish loaded with vitamins and minerals!
