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.
