This is a first in my series of eating from my small garden.  I have a few raised beds and practice an intense method of planting.  Just a little bit of room produces lots of food.

Some of my garden is not low-carb or Keto-friendly.  I am experimenting with container potatoes and a couple of heirloom corn stalks.  But most everything else is going to be useful to Keto people.

One thing that always grows amazing in my garden is Swiss Chard.  Swiss Chard has big (sometimes massive) leaves that are reminiscent of spinach but tougher in consistency.  The central vein of each big leaf is fibrous and sometimes cut out and thrown away.  I like to chop them fine and cook them with the leaves.

The simplest method of cooking is to chop and sautee them with a little fat (butter or bacon or beef lard) and season with salt, pepper, and some garlic.

I add it to everything, almost like a condiment.
