Swiss Chard with Chickpeas and Couscous

Quick, easy and uber healthy, this nutrient-packed meal is sure to become one of your favorite go-to options for those nights when you just don’t feel like cooking. It is also very easy to play around with. Try it with spinach instead of Swiss chard, or substitute almonds instead of pine nuts, or currants instead of raisins. However you prepare it, it’s sure to be a hit. For Recipe:

Ginseng

Ginseng root has been prized in traditional Chinese medicine for thousands of years, and often is combined with other herbs to bring long life, strength and wisdom to anyone who takes it. Ginseng is also thought to strengthen the body against viruses, and aid in recovery from illness. Although more study is needed, ginseng holds promise in reducing the risk of some types of cancers, slowing down or stopping the growth of tumors, improving symptoms of heart disease, lowering “bad” LDL cholesterol levels, while raising “good” HDL cholesterol levels, lowering high blood pressure and blood sugar levels, increasing alertness, and improving mental and physical performance. It is also widely accepted as helpful in boosting sexual performance. Some studies suggest that it may increase sperm production and motility, as well as decrease erection problems and symptoms of menopause. For adrenal health, ginseng is often utilized as an adaptogen, which is thought to help the body deal with physical or mental stress.

Swiss Chard

Despite its name, Swiss chard is not actually Swiss. In fact, it is native to the Mediterranean region and dates back to at least the fourth century B.C., when it was prized by the ancient Greeks, and later the Romans, for its medicinal properties. On the whole, this “superfood” offers extensive antioxidant and anti-inflammatory benefits, supports the nervous system, eye and bone health, helps prevent oxidative stress and helps regulate blood sugar in a variety of ways.
