Forget the Lucky Charms this year.
St. Patrick's Day is coming up and you know what that means: green everywhere — and we do mean everywhere. The decor, the clothes, and of course, the food. This holiday is actually a great excuse to get your veggies in — because it just so happens that green is the color of some of nature's most savory and nutrient-dense vegetables. Most of these meals are as healthy as they are festive, and that's what we call a win-win. From appetizers and snacks to lucky main meals, any of these green dishes will be perfect for the occasion.
Whether you're feeding a crowd at your St. Patty's Day party or you just want to cook a festive meal for the fam, there's nothing that will get your crew in the spirit like having a bite of this magical color. Sure guacamole isn't a traditional Irish dish, but if you wash it down with a pint of Guinness we're sure no one will complain. Just don't forget about the desserts!
