Swiss Chard
Go green beyond kale this year and pick up some Swiss chard. This veggie is a great source of iron and vitamin C, making it a great food to help fight fatigue. Swiss chard is similar to spinach, but has a mild and slightly bitter taste. Try it raw in salads, add it to soups or stews, use it in place of tortillas as a wrap or saute it with garlic for a tasty side dish.

Flavored Bone Broth
Warm up this winter season with a delicious cup of bone broth. The drink is a hybrid between stock and broth, made by slow simmering the bones to help release more good-for-you compounds, like collagen. Bone broth is hydrating, a great source of protein and easy on your stomach. Bone broth tastes like chicken or beef stock, but comes in a variety of flavors like ginger, lemongrass and rosemary. You can enjoy flavored bone broth on its own, pair it with grains or use it in a soup.

A healthy way to sweeten your day is with dates. Dates are a great source of iron, fiber and antioxidants and support healthy hair and nails. They have a chewy texture and a sweet flavor. Dates are a good alternative to refined sugar because your body can process natural sugars more easily. You can try dates blended into smoothies, chopped into oatmeal, in baked goods or in our Healthy Chocolate Spread.
