Swiss Chard Wrap + Exciting Announcement!

by Angela (Oh She Glows) on March 30, 2009

Good afternoon!

I have had a productive Monday so far. I had a horrible headache this morning so I finally gave in and had an Ibuprofen tablet. It took the headache away within 15 mins! I never take pills, so I guess when I do my body responds to them well.

This morning I have been cranking along with my to-do list:

  • Researched + Ordered Glo Bakery Packaging (1.5 hours)
  • Worked on new Glo Bakery website (1.5 hours)
  • Emails/Administrative tasks (1.5 hours)

It’s funny, now that I am enjoying my work I find I am so much more productive! A huge to-do list doesn’t phase me in the least.

Lunch was inspired by a comment from veggiegirl. She said she loves to use chard to make veggie wraps! I knew I had to try this for lunch.



                                  Swiss Chard + Cucumber Salmon Wrap


  • 1 can salmon
  • 2 spoonfuls Soy Yogurt (or regular)
  • 1/3 English cuke, chopped
  • 1 large Swiss Chard leaf (stem removed)
  • Paprika
  • Pepper

Sketchie enjoys licking the empty salmon can. Oh he is so spoiled!


IMG_7924I removed the bottom part of the stem, but I should have removed more of it! Those bites with the stem in there were not pleasant. I would strongly suggest removing as much of the stem as you can! I cut the bottom thick part out and it tasted much better.IMG_7932 

The overall taste was still a bit bitter, so I would also suggest using more seasonings or a different, more flavourful sauce to counteract the bitter qualities.

All and all it was fun to try something totally new and adventurous! My body thanked me. :)

Dessert was a kiwi (not ripe enough yet- doh!):    


I am fueled on green power and ready to tackle the work once again!


I have some exciting news!

Tomorrow is a huge day for Oh She Glows. :D

Tomorrow we will have a famous guest celebrity on Oh She Glows! I am absolutely thrilled to present this special interview for you all.

Hint: She has been on Oprah!

Any guesses?

Exciting! Can’t wait to find out!

This makes me want to go to the store right now and purchase some Swiss Chard. Yumm!

Oooh that is exciting news! I have no idea who it may be…??? I would love to try a wrap like that. I too have been a bit turned off by raw kale & swiss chard. I like them in stir frys and soups, but it definitely takes a bit of getting used to eating them raw or in smoothies! I’ll give this one a try with my “tu-no” salad! Take care :)

My cats swarm me when I open a can of tuna/salmon!

The chard rolls look great! Thanks for the tip about the stem!


Jackie March 30, 2009 at 3:38 pm

I can’t think of anyone. Boo for me. :-(

Jess March 30, 2009 at 3:48 pm

I can’t wait to see who it is!
I just had to say how amazing your blog is!
Thank you for taking the time to post all your wonderful workouts, baked goods and food!
They are fantastic:)

Much love,

Hmmm… i wonder who it could be… I want to say Stephanie Izard, but she was doing the blog interview thing a while back…


Shelby March 30, 2009 at 3:59 pm

I really can’t get past eating raw kale or chard. I’ve tried kale in my green smoothies but I have to counteract it with tons of sweet things. When I use spinach I don’t have to.

I’ll stick to kale chips and stir-fried chard. =)

I had chard once and didn’t know what to do with it. The wraps look interesting, it sure sounds like a superfood!


VeggieGirl March 30, 2009 at 5:27 pm

WAIT!!! I eat the swiss chard STEAMED :-D
