Go Green for St. Patrick’s Day

Monday, March 14th, 2011

Do you usually wear green on St. Patrick’s Day? It is a fun tradition, but this year take it a step further and make an effort to eat green foods as well. It is easy to come up with some green foods to try but here are some ideas to get you started.

For breakfast prepare a spinach omelette, by scrambling eggs and added some fresh or thawed frozen spinach to it. Or maybe try some pancakes with some sliced of green apple or kiwi.

How about having a green salad for lunch? Add some chicken or ham and cheese to make it more filling.

For dinner, try some grilled chicken and potatoes with a big serving of steamed broccoli.

Why not keep the green theme for dessert? Try some green sugar free jelly or fruit salad made with mostly green fruit would be another great dessert idea.
