"Lady Finger" is a vegetable sometimes known as "okra".

It produces pods which are very versatile and can be used in a range of dishes including stir fries, curries and roasted mixed vegetables.

Okra is high in a number of nutrients in particular Vitamins A, C and K. Fresh pods are high in folate which is important for fetal development in pregnant woman, the production of red blood cells, and can even be said to reduce symptoms of depression.

Coconut on the other hand is high in dietary fibre, which help digestion and controls the levels of sugar in your blood, the result of which leaves you feeling "full" for longer. It also contains iron, which aids the transportation of oxygen around the body.

However, coconut is very high in fat, particularly saturated fat, and so should only be eaten in moderation, and is not recommended if you are trying to lose weight.
