3. Swiss Chard with Olives
Simple yet delicious, this recipe makes a great side dish when serving either vegetarian or animal protein-rich main meals.
The Swiss chard it contains will boost your intake of vital minerals like copper, calcium, sodium, potassium, iron, manganese, and phosphorous.
Potassium is especially vital because it is a component of cell and body fluid throughout the whole body that helps to control heart rate and blood pressure by stopping the effects of sodium.

4. Swiss Orange Chard with Blood Orange Dressing
The blood oranges used in this recipe make this salad very pleasing to the eye. But what’s even more important is what they can do for our health.
Anthocyanins, a type of antioxidant, is what gives the blood orange flesh its distinct colour. Antioxidants are substances that can protect cells from damage and may even be able to lower the risk of cancer, heart disease, and memory loss.

5. Swiss Chard and Apple Torte Aux Blettes
The tartness of golden raisins really compliments the tanginess of the Swiss chard in this recipe.
By upping your intake of Swiss chard you are also increasing your intake of five of the B-vitamins such as folate, niacin, pyridoxine, thiamin, and pantothenic acid–all of which are essential for healthy cellular metabolic functioning and need topping up daily as they are water soluble.
