Eating-But Not Wearing-Green Today

I’m not going to lie to you-I am not wearing green. It’s just not my color. I am 100% on board with Valentine red, July 4th red, white and blue,  Halloween orange and well, that’s about it. You won’t see green on this body-ever. I’m just sayin.

Enter the fields of green produce. On any given day, you’ll see me eating green foods….lettuces, spinach, kale, grapes, cucs, etc.

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day, I’m giving a special shout out to the Superbowl produce powerhouse avocado, underrated and disrespected brussels sprouts and the now-second-to-the-newest-dark-leafy-green-media-darling-kale- spinach. Here’s how I’ll do it:

Lunch-avocado slices added to my bean burrito (and tomato, too)

Dinner-strawberry salad with spinach, pepitas (pumpkin seeds) and grana padano cheese along with sauteed brussels sprouts-seasoned with a touch of olive oil, shallots, salt and pepper

Pretty basic. No need to be fancy to get your greens in for the day-St. Patty’s day or not, these greenies have nutrients and phytonutrients that we need every day. Not to mention they are fiber rich and, best of all–THEY TASTE GOOD. I get it-I know-we aren’t going to eat anything unless it tastes good.

Here’s a few recipes to get you started to a tasty green menu today:

    So sorry you don't think you look good in green! I think it's my favorite color to wear 🙂 Love all the green foods you mentioned, but my top favorites are avocados, artichokes, and asparagus. The avocado graprefruit salad looks wonderful. Happy St.Patrick's Day!
