As if you needed another reason to benefit from more greens. Here we offer an amazing combo with Swiss chard from your mom's garden. Fresh new recipe just for the long weekend:

  • Some Swiss chard leaves
  • 3 sticks of celery
  • 1 bell pepper (pitted)

Benefits

Swiss chard is an impressive vegetable to include in your diet as it has an extremely high nutrient value. If offers a range of antioxidants both in its deeply coloured green leaves and stalks and veins with purples, reds or yellows. As we all know, antioxidants (e.g., polyphenol, betalain and carotenoid) prevent free radical damage, inflammation and many other diseases.

Celery is good! Only 10 calories in 1 stick! We like it because it also add volume to your juice. Just like lemons, celery juice regulates the body pH balance and help in digestion. Thus the combo of lemon and celery is great.

Bell peppers are high in nutrients and are an excellent choice for a well-balanced diet. Their vitamin C content is high (190% of the recommended daily amount). Further, they are low in fat and calories. They prevent cancer owing to their carotenoids (also giving them orange-red colour).
