Sauteed Swiss Chard in Curried Coconut Milk

Have you tried to fall in love with greens and been unsuccessful?

Do you eat your greens, but do so because you know they’re good for you, not because you love them?

Have you been told to “eat your greens”, but you really don’t see what all the fuss is about?

Well if any of those are the case, it’s time we turn that around!

Did you know that it is recommended that we eat 5 servings of vegetables a day to avoid chronic disease…..but sadly, only 1 in 5 people actually do so. And that’s the minimum we should be eating! In many other countries, like Japan and France, people are encouraged to eat up to 10-13 portions daily for good health, and they emphasize that a large percentage should be greens.

To clarify, I don’t mean iceberg lettuce! I’m talking about the nutrient-dense greens like kale, swiss chard, collards, beet greens, dandelion greens, romaine, spinach, mustard greens, arugula, parsley, cilantro and the like.

Why Eat Greens?

  • They support a healtlhy immune system.
  • They support healthy metabolism and weight.
  • They are high in vitamins, minerals and phytonutrients.
  • They are high in fiber and support good gut health.
  • They are alkalizing to our systems.
  • They reduce the risk of cancer and other disease.
  • They are high in nutrition, low in calories.
  • They have a high mineral that will reduce cravings.
  • They fight inflammation.
  • They increase energy and promote happiness!

The evidence is hard to ignore. There are so many ways to enjoy green vegetables from smoothies, juices, salads and sides to incorporating them right into the main dish! There is really no excuse to eat your greens!

And this dish I’m going to share with you, it has converted many a skeptic. I’ve served it when we’ve had friends over for dinner, and always see the exchange of raised eyebrows, followed by the praise that starts gushing out of their mouth between spoonfuls.

My kids….they grub it all without even batting an eye.  I even get “mmmm, mmmm”‘s from my 3 year old. 🙂

And get this….this is one of the 60+ amazing recipes from my Fall Detox!

Ready to unlock your body’s potential for healing, thriving and living the vibrant life you are meant to live?

My mission is to shift the perception that weight loss is a struggle and we have to deprive ourselves to lose weight. If you’re dieting and you’re hungry, you’re setting yourself up for failure. I’ve seen this personally and it’s been documented scientifically over and over.

Imagine a process where you change the way you look at food FOREVER. Imagine not being controlled by your cravings, feeling satisfied for hours between meals and effortlessly losing and maintaining a healthy weight.

You’ll have energy, stamina and immunity beyond what you thought was possible.

Even if you think you’re a healthy eater, the truth is that the food marketing industry has a way of misleading us to think things are healthy when they may actually be hurting you. These so called “health foods” are causing inflammation, both felt and systemic. And inflammmation is the root of all disease.

If you are experiencing low energy, joint pain, brain fog, moodiness, trouble sleeping, dull skin or even life-defining acne like I did, I can help. The cravings, the bloating, the gas, the pounds that just won’t budge….it all stems from the foods you’re eating.

Now go eat your greens! 🙂
