I’ll admit it. Swiss chard is my favorite vegetable.  It is a super food, packed with nutrients, taste, and colorful beauty. Swiss chard is one of the most nutritious vegetables, being rich in vitamins K, A, C magnesium, manganese, potassium, iron, and antioxidants. It is relatively mild and subtly sweet compared to other greens, such as kale and collard, although those are also at the top of my list of favorite nutrient-packed veggies. You can eat chard raw (chop off the stalks and eat it like celery!), as a green in salads, smoothies, sautés, soups, and stir-frys. 

Swiss chard comes in a rainbow of colors, red, pink, orange, yellow, and green.  Give it a try… it will change your life!
