LOL Just yesterday I had to explain to my Dad what swiss chard tastes like and how to prepare it. It always amazes me how my Mom never wants to try anything different.
No wonder she doesn't want to eat at our house anymore. My Dad ends up asking her to make things I make. LOL
I grow swiss chard during the spring and summer. SO YUMMY!

Oh, I love kale and chard. I put adzuki beans and kale together to make a very yummy and healthy (and cheap) dish. Serve it up on brown rice mmmmmmmmm.

Hospitals are terrific for traumatic care; for acute care. They do a really, really good job in saving lives when it’s a sudden bleeding emergency. But in terms of chronic care, they’re terrible; (that is) in terms of the illnesses that most people have, endure, that cost the most money, that last the longest and ultimately die from. -Dr. Andrew Saul

Azuki beans are SO good! I get them from the bulk bin at my health food store. They are good in Mexican recipes, as already said, and they also make yummy sprouts in three or four days.

My grocery bill has gone down since going vegan. I don't know why some people find it impossible to eat cheap and healthy. My bulk grains, beans, lentils and brown rice are very affordable even though organic, and it seems greens are always affordable. No one seems to like kale and swiss chard as much as I do, though I just read in Alicia Silverstone's book that chard is more acidic, so I should probably increase my kale and decrease my chard over time.

Thanks for sharing this article!

Adzuli beans are really delish and they cook up faster than most other beans. they are small and redish colored. I have even made chili with them. They puree up very smooth so you can make a smooth bean soup, dips, sauces
