13 Naturally Green Foods to Enjoy on St. Patrick’s Day


Naturally Green Foods

Saint Patrick’s Day is the perfect time to celebrate everything green by preparing recipes using naturally green foods.   Think outside of the box and use naturally green foods like spinach to make waffles, muffins, and pancakes in the blender.  Choose hearty greens, asparagus, and avocados to make a beautiful spring salad.   Add avocado to egg salad to make it green and also make avocado deviled eggs or avocado hummus.

Skip the food coloring for dessert and make pistachio cream pie or the adorable chocolate mint garden parfaits.  The possibilities are endless!

Curried Egg Salad

Give your egg salad a kick with curry! We love this recipe because it’s got more flavor with less fat—we substitute avocado for mayonnaise to bind the ingredients. Finish it off with veggies, then serve on whole-grain bread or over lettuce or baby spinach.
