Theres just something about Swiss Chard that exemplifies happiness in a bowl. Maybe its the beautiful way the multi colored stalks just beg to be bitten into and release abundant juices. It could be the addition of olive oil that coats each leave, and it can actually hold onto it well unlike some other greens. Typical associations of Swiss Chard usually involve a beautiful item that is forbidden for fodmappers, garlic. Bacon, on the other hand has been given the go- ahead from the dear inventors of the Fodmap diet, Monash University.
I can down the entire bunch of chard solo, and if you are prone to those kinds of things ( we should hang out), then double the amount of chard in the recipe. Its a great way to start your day, with 2 servings of vegetables, protein from the eggs and fat from the bacon. Add the cayenne and your revved and conquer the day ahead.
