8 Healthiest Leafy Greens


8. Chard

Nutritional Information: With colorful stems and bright green leaves, chard is definitely one of the prettiest greens out there. And, with plenty of vitamins A and C, as well as hefty doses of  iron and fiber, its nutritional value is nothing to sneeze at, either.

Serving Suggestions: Steaming chard is a great way to go. In a steamer, let chard cook for about 3-5 minutes.

Greens could save the nutritional problems of the human race if more people would just eat them. Beet greens are excellent too. Thanks for the reminder to eat my leafy greens :)
