AIP Paleo Rainbow Swiss Chard -Quick & Delicious Side Dish. One of my Favorite Greens- www.thehealthnutmama.com

I’m from the south, so I grew up on turnip green & collards. I had never even heard of Swiss Chard. Not that it’s not southern, we just didn’t eat it.  It is a little fancy, though. Look how pretty those colors are!

SAfter going Paleo & then AIP, I started experimenting with new veggies. In order to get my then, 12 year old, to eat a variety of veggies (she was a good eater, thank goodness), we would go to the store & the rule was, that we had to come back with at least one veggie we had never had before.

Sometimes, the weirder the veggie looked, the better.  At least chard wasn’t weird. It is her favorite green now! Swiss Chard www.thehealthnutmama.comI love the color of the stems of Rainbow Chard.  A Lot of people cut them off & throw them away.  Not me.  I chop them & saute in EVOO or bacon fat with onions & minced garlic. The stalks remind me of celery, except prettier.  See how pretty that is! And it smells soooo good!Apple Cider Vinegar www.thehealthnutmama.comI add about 1 Tbs. of ACV (apple cider vinegar)Swiss Chard www.thehealthnutmama.comThen I add the greens & sea salt.Swiss Chard www.thehealthnutmama.comAnd a little bone broth.Swiss Chard www.thehealthnutmama.comJust saute until tender.

    One of my favorite vegetables! My mother prefers using animal fats to cook, but I prefer steaming and tossing with olive oil and spices:) Great alongside poached eggs for breakfast~

      Mine too! I like to do both. If I have good quality animal fat I use it, but mostly olive oil. And yes, it is great with eggs also. Yum!
