Swiss chard is a heart-healthy leafy green that everyone should include in their diet. This recipe is an excellent source of calcium, so you'll build bone with every bite.

This dish worked out really well, and I was surprised at the low calories per serving. The mustard greens are a nice mix of textures with the stems and leaves cooked together. Its very filling and full of leafy green goodness!!! This could easily become a main course by adding some tofu or chicken to the stir fry. We had it with a side of grains and some pan seared Ahi Tuna.

Vegetable Enchiladas (by POPPYKLAPROOSJE)
(no ratings)

Sweet potatoes and black beans are a match made in heaven. Add salsa and sour cream, plus some cheese, and I am one happy woman. This dish came about because I wanted to make better-for-us enchiladas. My boyfriend loves this recipe!

This dish is high in fiber and full of protein, and it contains two servings of vegetables per serving.

I shred the sweet potato using my food processor. You could use a box grater. You could also cut it into a small dice and cook it with the onion and garlic until almost tender.
