(Optional) add some tofu, avocado, and italian seasoning mashed together and put that on the top and then add the yeast flakes over that.

Swiss Chard has over 7 times that daily amount of Vitamin K needed for good health and preventing unwanted clotting in arteries, twice the daily amount of Vitamin A which is important for boosting your immune system , and half your needs of Vitamin C which is a powerful antioxidant. Plus Vitamin E for preventing cataracts and lowering cholesterol. B Vitamins for energy, metabolism, and vitality, plus tryptophan for a good nights rest.
And Swiss Chard has lots of wonderful trace minerals including phosphorus and calcium for strong bones, zinc for boosting your immune system so you don’t catch colds, copper and iron for anemia, manganese for preventing osteoporosis, plus magnesium for enzyme creation and regulation. And Swiss Chard has lots of fiber for colon health… and for creating the best environment for the growth of probiotic bacteria. And Swiss Chard contains some protein and hardly any fat making it great for weight loss.
Portobello Mushrooms are low in fat, high in protein, and have very low sodium. They also contain lots of l-erothioneine which is a very powerful antioxidant and polyphenols like that found in green tea that help protect you from cardiovascular disease, strokes, and cancer. And studies show that eating Portobello Mushrooms reduces the possibility of coming down with Alzheimer’s disease.
Tomatoes also contain lots of lycopene that’s a powerful antioxidant that’s well known to prevent Breast, Prostate, and Stomach Cancer and boost your immune system. Studies show that eating tomatoes lowers your risk of prostate cancer by more than 30%. And another study shows that eating tomatoes lowered your chances of coming down with pancreatic cancer by over 40%. And low levels of lycopene have been found in people who come down with colon cancer and growths… so it’s very important to eat your tomatoes.
Plus Nutritional Yeast has over 13 grams of protein per oz (high protein), and with very few calories – lower than 80 calories per oz. Just a couple of tablespoons has more protein than you find in 6 grams of beef, 1 egg, and even 1 cup of milk. – Wow! So if you work out hard and want some great protein in your diet, add some Nutritional Yeast to your workout smoothie. Nutritional Yeast has over 18 different amino acids — “a complete source of amino acids” that will do your body good. Nutritional Yeast is over 50% complete protein which is amazing!
This dish also freezes well for you can have it on hand just in case you don’t feel like cooking... if it lasts that long.
Enjoy Great Health!
