Here's what I got for $15: 2 celery stalks, a lot of bananas, a bag of yummy apples, oranges,
I've never eaten swiss chard before now. I tried it 3 ways: #1 I sauteed it with garlic, oil and lemon. Pretty good. The stalk is sweet and the leaf is bitter, sort of like spinach. It reminded me of asian food (maybe that was the garlic). #2 I ate it fresh in a salad with the romaine and spinach. I didn't even taste it. #3 I used it in place of spinach for a green smoothie. I know I wrote about those on facebook, like a year ago, but I should've written about them here. I love green smoothies!! Essentially you grab a handful of spinach (or in this case a couple of chard leaves peeled from the stalk) and put them in your blender. Add about 2 cups of oj and blend it up. The oj makes it so you don't taste the greens at all. Then add whatever fruit you want. I like bananas because they make it smooth. And fresh blueberries are incredible with it. Try it! It's one of the ways I sneak leafy greens into my kid's diets.
