Today is St. Patrick’s Day, and while many people will be thinking about corned beef, cabbage and boiled root vegetables with the only green coming from their beer, I think of it a little differently. Why not go green today?
How many green foods can you incorporate into your day today? If you are at a loss for where to start, here are a few to choose from: Spinach, avocado, asparagus, artichokes, kiwi, green cabbage, pistachio nuts, green tea, kale, broccoli, peas, green lentils, lime, fresh herbs (basil, rosemary, thyme, tarragon, mint, and more), string beans, snap peas, fennel, bell pepper, celery, zucchini, cucumber, brussels sprouts, kohlrabi, grapes, okra, pears, olives, swiss chard, collards, capers, sprouts, edamame, scallions…. There are more out there but you get the idea!
While others around you may be celebrating with green beer, and corned beef, why not try some green tea and vegetables? You might just feel a little healthier in the morning and you definitely won’t be nursing a hangover!
