Is is also called the bitter cucumber, a green and wrinkle vegetable like the size of a yam or eggplant. It is a dish,you can slice one bitter melon into thin slices,get rid of the seeds inside and throw it away, do the same with chicken or fish in slices too. Start with a medium hot pan, add a couple tablespoon of coin or sunflowers seeds oil to the pan, a couple slices of ginger, chopped and chopped green onion,( one stalk with the whole thing chopped) add to the oil, stir fry till aroma comes out, then add the bitter cucumber ,stir fry for a couple minutes. Get then out, and do the same separately for the sliced chicken without the skin or fish, add oil and crushed garlic (approx half a Teaspoonful) to the pan ,stir,fry the meat until it is well done, then add the bitter cucumber back to pan, stir fry for a min, add salt and/ or soy source to taste and served. Remember it is an acquired taste dish. "black bean paste" available in most Chinese food section of many stores and you can add 1/2to one teaspoonful with the chopped ginger in the process of of cooking the sliced bitter cucumber to truly enjoy it as a traditional Chinese daily dish.
Another easy way of doing this is juicing 1/4-1/2(depending on the size of the melon) with a couple stalks of celery and kale, 1/2 of a green paper .
If you do the juice daily, early in the morning ,like drinking a glass of OJ, I do not see the harm of doing it. The dish, may be three times a week with the evening meals with brown rice . If you want to taste it first to see you like the dish or not, go to a Chinese restaurant and order a dish of "bitter cucumber and chicken with black bean source", it comes with white rice.
