swiss chard

Nosh on this veggie of you want to keep your blood sugar steady.  Swiss chard is packed with a flavonoid that slows down the absorption of carbs in the small intestine.  Consuming it results in a low, slow rise in blood sugar that helps ensure lasting energy, a sunnier mood and freedom from cravings.  Add it in creamy chowders or tomato soup.  Here’s what you should do: Stir in a handful of chopped baby Swiss chard in your chowder and let simmer for 3 minutes or until leaves are tender. You can also whip up a tangy dip by combining  1 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 cup each sautéed Swiss chard, Greek yogurt and sour cream.
