Swiss and rainbow chard

Packed with phytonutrients that have antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, chard cannot be overlooked as one of the healthiest vegetables out there (it also helps regulate blood pressure). The leaves are mild and similar to beet greens, but the stems and ribs are more bitter, so they taste best cooked. Rainbow chard is a fun and colorful addition to soups, or sauté any chard with olive oil, salt and pepper and toss with roasted squash for a nutrient-rich side dish.
