10 Naturally Green Foods for St. Patrick’s Day.
St. Patrick’s Day is almost here and my kids couldn’t be more excited. Last year a little Leprechaun snuck into our house and turned our toiled water green! They are still talking about that little adventure and wondering what tricks will be pulled this year. I know traditional St. Patrick’s Day food is Irish, but there’s no way I’m making corned beef and cabbage. I don’t like corned beef (long story) and I doubt it would be very high on the family’s list of gotta have foods either. So instead of traditional I thought I would make a green meal. The more I got to thinking about it, the harder it sounded.
I don’t love food dyes and I rarely use them for more than dying toilet water, making play-dough, and for sugar cookie icing at Christmas. If I can avoid adding dye to our diet I will. As I searched for naturally green foods I found I had quite the list when I was done, so why not share with you.
Whether you have a dislike of food dyes or not, these recipes look amazing and would be fun to try. It seems like spinach, avocado, and pistachios are a common theme here – more power to the power foods!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day and enjoy this list of 10 naturally green foods!

And wouldn’t something rainbow be perfect too?! I think this rainbow sherbet punch would be so fun!
Mmmm. See I told you it was a good list! Now off to the store to pick up more spinach.
Thanks for reading.
