Chard

Chard, also known as Swiss Chard, is part of the beet and spinach family. The crunchy stalk, which can come in white, red and yellow, and the large wide green leaves, are both edible. If all three colored stalks are packaged together, they are called “Rainbow Chard.” Along with other leafy greens, Chard is a nutrient dense powerhouse, and if you haven't started experimenting with it in the kitchen, get to cooking!
