Sautéed Swiss Chard


by Dr. Nancy Rahnama

Director of Health & Nurition

Chard is a delicious option that is part of the Chenopodioideae family (spinach and beets) and its leaves and stalks provide abundant vitamins, minerals and powerful plant compounds.  Swiss Chard is a dark leafy green, and Rainbow Chard comes in colorful, jewel-toned stalks and veins, making this vegetable particularly pleasing to the eye.
