The bitterness of the chard is well balanced by the sweetness of the honey and the creamy flavor of the walnuts. It's a great balance for any delicious side dish.
A tablespoon of honey is 63 calories and a tablespoon of sugar is 46 calories. Since both are mostly carbohydrates, the honey is essentially 1/3 sweeter than the sugar.
In practical terms, this means that you would use 4 tablespoons of sugar for every 3 tablespoons of honey.
There is no difference in how your body uses honey – it’s not any more natural than sugar. There is a difference in how honey works when baking and I like to use honey in things like salad dressings where I want a creamy mouthfeel but lower fat.
