As a lifter, you don’t have any problem pounding down protein. Vegetables, on the other hand, are a tougher sell. The trick to eating more greens is disguising their bland taste by mixing them with other foods. This recipe does just that, distracting your taste buds with aromatic ginger chicken and sesame seeds. You’ll get your protein and a satisfying meal while barely noticing the bok choy—a vegetable loaded with antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals.


  • 6 cups bok choy
  • 2 tbsp coconut oil
  • 3 tbsp low-sodium chicken broth
  • 1 tsp fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp low-sodium soy sauce
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tbsp grated ginger
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame seeds


  1. Chop bok choy and toss with garlic in a bowl. In a wok or nonstick cooking pan, add 1 tbsp oil and sauté the chicken for 3 minutes.
  2. Add the remaining tbsp of oil, the bok choy, and the rest of the ingredients (except the sesame seeds).
  3. Cook on medium-high heat for 4 minutes. Sprinkle sesame seeds on top and enjoy.
