When it comes to leafy greens, Swiss Chard is arguably the Princess while Kale is the Queen. At only 35 calories per serving, 1 cup of cooked Swiss Chard covers your daily need for vitamins A and K and nearly the recommended daily intake of vitamin C. It's also packed with antioxidants like beta-carotene and flavonoids, which have been studied to prevent certain conditions like heart disease and lung cancer.
Swiss Chard is high in fiber, so it's the perfect partner in prepping that gorgeous bod for when quarantine is over (we're counting down the days too). High fiber diets promote regular bowel movements, help maintain healthy cholesterol levels, and slow digestion. OK, those may not sound cute, but we promise they help you look, and most importantly, feel cute!
Swiss Chard can be made countless delicious ways, and that's why we love her! Blended into smoothies, sauteed with your favorite veggies, baked for chips, topped on pizza, served raw in salads, or stirred into soups and stews. You can even pickle the stems for a crunchy snack!
