A reader made the suggestion of taking Saint Patrick’s Day eating to all new levels:
Have a green feast!
But this isn’t any green feast produced through artificial means. No, ma’am. No sprinkles or food color here.
This is how many green fruits and veggies can you put on your plate. I love it!
Here’s a list of naturally GREEN foods you might want to dish up tomorrow:
- green grapes
- honeydew melon
- green apples
- green peppers
- kale, chard, bok choy, sorrel, collards
- cabbage (green and Napa)
- green onions or scallions
- fresh herbs
- basil pesto
- green beans
Funny how all the green foods are all plants. I consider that a good thing, since I don’t think most of us (self included) eat as much of the plant kingdom as we should.
And what a fun way to celebrate the wearing o’ the green. Dress up your plate!
