Rainbow Swiss Chard Is Full of Disease-Fighting Polyphenols

Rainbow Swiss Chard Is Full of Disease-Fighting Polyphenols

September 05, 2019

Swiss chard, otherwise known as beta vulgaris, is the same plant as the common beet.  Historically, beets have been selected and bred for their colorful and flavorful roots, whereas Swiss chard was selected and bred for its leaves. In fact, it has been bred so much for nutrition and color that one of the commonly grown varieties is called Rainbow chard. Unlike common chard, which is green with a hint of red, Rainbow chard contains most of the colors of the rainbow in its leaves.

 

Although all cooked greens are very nutritious, chard is particularly full of healthy polyphenols, which are the chemicals the plants use to combat disease.   Our Swiss Chard Powder is made completely from organically grown Swiss chard, full of the colors of the rainbow, and processed in a way that mimics how we use it at home.

 

Enjoy our Swiss Chard Powder on any savory dish to add both flavor and a healthy dose of disease-fighting nutrients. 

 

In health,

Tom Cowan, M.D.

For grains, that wisdom is in the ancient varieties that have been grown for thousands of years.

Manifesting a Vision Means Clearing What Doesn’t Serve

June 24, 2020

The first step for us in creating this new garden is born of necessity: In a word, that step is clearing. That means trimming, cutting, pruning, mowing, and sawing all the overgrown limbs and weeds.  Thanks to at least a half dozen trips to our local hardware store, we have been delighted to find affordable battery- and muscle-powered tools. The hand tools, including a wrought iron broad fork and other copper-forged tools, are humbling. Their use requires a level of efficiency I am learning rapidly.

A New Place to Further Our Commitment to Organic Gardening
A New Place to Further Our Commitment to Organic Gardening

June 15, 2020

During this time of relative uncertainty, we have decided to renew our commitment to gardening. Dr. Cowan’s Garden was originally a place, located in Napa Valley on a plot of land generously donated by a friend. It embodied our ideals and was a sanctuary for growth and learning.

The garden was our muse for new product offerings and for improving existing ones. The garden kept our ambitions grounded to certain fundamentals, as the practice of gardening can be challenging.
