We get one of those awesome organic fruit and veggie boxes each week, and there are occasionally a few items that we struggle with. But is chard not the most challenging healthy food to include in your family’s diet?
With all the benefits packed into this green powerhouse, I was getting desparate to find a way to get the kids, and hubby to eat it and hold it in their body longer than it takes to “chew and spit”.
I have tried a few different options, such as: stir fries – FAIL! with eggs – FAIL! with salad – FAIL! In chili – my normally chili-crazed family could not spit it out fast enough!
I came across a swiss chard stew that was rated poorly online. With a few tweaks, I thought it might actually be a hit with my kids. And it was! Especially Isabelle… but that girl loves to eat any healthy food.
Everyone loved the stew. The exception was my son. He loved it the first time I made it, and didn’t like it the second time around, (I am guessing it’s because I ran out of garlic the second time).
Otherwise it was a hit!
