Health Benefits of Swiss Chard

1324A great source of antioxidants, Swiss chard offers anti-inflammatory benefits for your whole body. Swiss chard is a great source of healthy omega-3 fats, vitamins K and A, and beta carotene. And with only 19 calories per 100 grams of raw Swiss chard, it’s a snack that will give your body the phytonutrients it needs while keeping your weight down.*

For a healthy cooking method, boil Swiss chard uncovered for three minutes. By keeping the pot uncovered, you allow acids to escape, making the Swiss chard taste sweeter. Once boiled, press excess liquid out with a fork, toss with lemon, and enjoy!
