With St. Patrick’s Day right around the corner, I’ve been in the green mood. I had already made a New Year’s resolution to start eating healthier. So, I thought it would be really fun if I could combine these two things. I was also hoping this would be a great way to get my kids to eat a little healthier. I’ve been thinking of making the entire month of March “green,” and everyday having something green to eat, and maybe trying a few new green things we’ve never tried before. I’m cautiously optimistic.

  • Green tea

    This delicious green drink is full of antioxidants that help to keep you healthy, and in large doses may even help to prevent cancer.

  • Avocados

    These rich green fruits are filled with lutein, which is great for your eyes, vitamin E, which helps lower the risk of Alzheimer’s disease, and cholesterol-lowering fats.

  • Kale

    These fluffy greens are full of vitamin C and other cancer-fighting plant compounds.

  • Edamame

    These green soy beans are packed with protein, which makes them a great staple for vegetarian and vegan diets.

  • Asperagus

    This stock green is chock full of inulin, a prebiotic that aides in healthy digestion.

  • Kiwi

    These juicy green fruits are brimming with vitamin C, potassium, vitamin E, folate and even fiber.
