Green. Green is the color of St. Patrick’s Day. When I was a kid growing up in Boston, if you weren’t wearing green on St. Patrick’s Day, you’d get punched in the arm. Then, in college (and beyond) it was all about the green beer. Neither of these celebrations were ever particularly appealing to me, despite my Irish lineage.
So instead of punches and terrible hangovers, I thought it would be fun to pull together some fun, healthy, green foods for St. Patrick’s Day. These simple recipes are delicious crowd-pleasers for your family and friends, or can help you to get some nourishing food in your system before the celebrations begin.
