Benefits of Swiss Chard

  • Recent research has shown that chard leaves contain at least 13 different polyphenol antioxidants, including kaempferol, the cardioprotective flavonoid that’s also found in broccoli, kale, strawberries, and other foods.
  • One of the primary flavonoids found in the leaves of chard is a flavonoid called syringic acid. Syringic acid has received special attention in recent research due to its blood sugar regulating properties. This flavonoid has been shown to inhibit activity of an enzyme called alpha-glucosidase. When this enzyme gets inhibited, fewer carbs are broken down into simple sugars and blood sugar is able to stay more steady. It makes sense to think about chard as a vegetable whose flavonoid phytonutrients are unique and may offer special benefits for blood sugar control.

They are perfect for a quick snack or side for breakfast.  Kids love them since they are a little sweet.These can also be coated with some yogurt or almond milk and eaten like a cereal

There is only 4 grams of sugar per serving, 11g of healthy fats and 4 grams of protein.  A serving size is 5 pieces

 

 

One of my favorite treats is to have a shot of POM juice with a tablespoon of RAW apple cider vinegar

This tonic hits you like a tonne of bricks and tastes awesome.  I drink it from a shot glass to control my dose.  I could drink the entire bottle if you let me!

We buy the ACV from Kroger’s and the POM juice from Costco

ACV is awesome for lot of things including weight loss and healthy liver function, for more info go to this link.

Apple – I try to eat 2-3 apples a day.  They are awesome for countless reasons.

Also Dipa had a Larabar – Cashew Cookie Flavor, so good

That juice is the POM and ACV, two servings

 

 

 

 

 

Now the last segment in what seems to be a never ending breakfast.

1 cup of strawberries, blueberries and kiwi

1 banana

8 leaves of turnip greens, stems removed

4 scoops of Lepterra Rice protein, berry flavor

1 tablespoon of ground chia seeds

Notice that the color is a nice purple, kids wont even know they just had turnip greens (probably for the first time ever for most)

The shake is sweet from the stevia in the protein and from the banana, so you can cut the banana if you wish.

MAKE SURE YOU HAVE A GOOD BLENDER TO DO THIS
