Rainbow Chard is Nature’s Healthy, Colorful Surprise

Maybe rainbow chard is nature’s playful diversion from the norm. After all, the importance of including greens in our diet has been drilled into most of us since we were old enough reach the cookie jar.

Then we discovered that green isn’t always green. With rainbow chard, green is an assortment of colorful stalks and leaves that are healthy enough to take the place of nutrient-rich classics like spinach and kale but pretty enough to replace the floral arrangement serving as your centerpiece.

Well, almost.

Rainbow chard is actually a relative of the beet, and while the flat, crunchy stalks feature a taste that resembles beets, the similarities end there. The large, tender leaves of rainbow chard are sweet and mildly bitter, and can be served as part of a salad much like spinach.  At the Detox Lounge, we include rainbow chard in our 3-Day Juice Cleanse to pass along its high content of vitamins A and C, iron and calcium.

The 3-Day Juice Cleanse is a six-juice regimen of high-vitamin, low-calorie juices. “Motivate My Body,” a sweet concoction earmarked for mid-afternoon consumption, combines the healthful qualities of kale, carrots, cucumbers, oranges, celery, spinach, beets and rainbow chard to provide a burst of antioxidants and vitamins that erase the need for those popular mid-day energy drinks.

Rainbow chard plays an important role in the mixture, providing a blast of vitamins and nutrients such as:

Vitamin A, to protect against infections and encourage healthier skin and eyes.

Vitamin C, to help fend off infections and improve the health of your body’s cells.

Iron, to help deliver oxygen throughout your body.

Calcium, to strengthen your bones.

Fiber, to aid in a healthy digestive system and improve cardiovascular health.

From the spinach that Popeye used to swallow to the broccoli once served to the Huxtable kids, the accepted color of good health has long been green. But in nature’s own miracle way, with a serving of rainbow chard a healthy diet can come in all colors.
