Check out my well deserved smoothie after a 90 minute bikram session with my beautiful Cubanita Gianina.
Mixed one small banana, one cup water, and 3 huge swiss chard leaves.
Benefits of swiss chard? Well 1 cup has all the vitamin A + K that you need for the day. What what! Has lots of calcium so it supports healthy bones. We like that… and it’s good for your hair since it contains biotin that strengthens and grows your golden locks.
The stuff also prevents cancer!! ”Swiss chard is one of the super foods that is known for its cancer preventative properties thanks to the fiber, chlorophyll, phytochemicals, and other plant pigments it contains. Studies have found that leafy green vegetables are particularly beneficial against colon cancer.” – HealthDiaries.com
Want to be even smarter than you are now? ha. Listen to this… ”In addition to strengthening the bones, the vitamin K in Swiss chard is crucial for the proper functioning of the brain and nervous system because it is essential in the formation of the myelin sheath, the protective layer around nerves.”- HealthDiaries.com
