AIP Swiss Chard With Apple Cider Vinegar
One of the main tenets of eating AIP is that you are supposed to eat a lot of colorful foods. One of the more eye catching ones that I can think of is red Swiss chard however not everyone likes the flavor of chard. Easily the best way to eat chard, according to me, is to boil it and serve it with a little oil and vinegar. This gives it a savory sensation from the oil, but the vinegar changes the flavor profile completely. It might take me a week to eat a bunch of Swiss chard raw in my salads or in my morning smoothie, but I can eat an entire bunch of Swiss chard from this recipe in about two minutes flat!
This is a great side dish to get more greens, and more color, into your meal. Best of all this is something that you can basically throw together in no time with only a few minutes to put it all together. Just be sure to fully press out all of the water out of the Swiss chard before you season it with oil and vinegar as it tends to hold a lot of water which will dilute the flavors too much if you don't remove enough of it.
