Chard Smoothie

Chard is an antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and detox agent. Polyphenol antioxidants boost heart health and regulate blood sugar. This easy-to-grow vegetable is also a good source of vitamins A, C, E, and K, as well as calcium, iron, copper, manganese, magnesium, sodium, and alkalizing chlorophyll for bone and lung health.

Nutrients in chard help to build blood, regenerate cells, and boost immunity. Chard comes in a variety of colors—red, orange, yellow, and white. “Rainbow chard” is just different kinds of leaves all bunched together. Keep it in your daily diet!
