Swiss Chard is a favorite leafy green of mine because it is fairly easy to grow in the garden and seems to thrive in many kinds of conditions. If your daily intake is low in vitamin A or K, 1 giant Swiss Chard leaf will cover your needs for the day. Along with the vitamin A and K you will get a decent amount of vitamin C. In respect to outright nutrients, Swiss Chard settles onto my lowest list of foods to use to target specific nutrients. But because there are only 9 calories in a giant leaf serving, Swiss Chard is a must have in your rotation of greens when attempting to lose weight.
