Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day By Eating Green

St. Patrick’s day is this week. The majority of people around the world will be drinking green beer and eating green-colored everything. Instead of drinking the loads of artificial colors and flavors, celebrate by eating something NATURALLY GREEN at every single meal this week. Yep- you heard right! EVERY. SINGLE. MEAL!

We all know how important it is to eat our green veggies and this is the perfect time to become aware of how many greens you truly ARE eating each day.

It’s the chlorophyll in the plants that turn our food green. This little chlorophyll molecule is pretty amazing. When consumed, it will increase blood cell production, improve oxygenation, detoxification, and circulation in your body.  It’s also known to help prevent certain types of cancer.

Green vegetables and fruits are loaded with vitamins and minerals that go to work in your body.

Some ideas for green foods to add to your plate:

  • Avocado, Artichoke, Asparagus
  • Green Apples, Kiwi, Grapes, Limes
  • Arugula, Spinach, Kale, and other Greens
  • Broccoli, Celery, Cucumber, Zucchini
  • Don’t forget herbs like Basil, Parsley, & Thyme!
