With St. Patrick’s Day just around the corner, it seems like everything is green! From food to decorations, the stores are packed with cookies, cupcakes, and lots of green glitter. Instead of the traditional corned beef and cabbage or a heavy stout stew, we are sharing some healthy green foods for this festive holiday.
We’ve seen everything from green beer to green eggs. Instead of using dyes to make everything green this St. Patrick’s Day, how about serving naturally green foods like these Garden Vegetable Steak Lettuce Wraps? Here are a few more of our favorite healthy green foods for St. Patrick’s Day.
