Swiss chard is in the same vegetable family as beets. It is an amazing source of folate, the b vitamin that prevents natural tube birth defects and can help with fighting lung cancer! Eating chard can also increase your energy levels, improve digestion and assist with calcium deficiencies as this vegetable contains loads of it!
Swiss chard will last in your refrigerator for 3-5 days wrapped in damp paper towel. It can be added raw to salads, but my favourite way to enjoy Swiss chard is by removing the stems and roughly chopping it and sautéing the chard with onion, peppers and garlic until tender and finish with balsamic vinegar.
