Green Chard, Zucchini and Tomatoes

This trip to the Farmer’s Market yielded zucchini, tomatoes and green chard. What kind of zucchini pasta will I make with it today? You’ll have to wait until 3:30pm EST to find out, when I post up the recipe using these fresh and healthy ingredients.

In the meantime, let’s talk green chard. It’s nickname is roman kale…. that’s pretty rad. It’s also known as a “nutritional powerhouse.” I’m sure Thug Kitchen would have a field day with all this.

Time to confess. I’ve actually never eaten any type of chard before. Hey, I’m only 26, I have a lot to go through before I’ll consider myself experienced…. like going shark diving, visiting Asia and having babies… so consider eating chard on that list too, mmkay?

Chard: Healthy Tidbits

  • Excellent source of vitamins K, A and C (talk about good for the immune system!)
  • Contains essential minerals, such as copper, potassium, calcium, and iron
  • Regular consumption has proven to decrease risk of osteoporosis
  • Reduces chances of coronary heart disease

Remember to check back later today for a recipe with this “nutritional powerhouse.”
