Go Green for St. Patrick's Day

HAPPY St. PATRICK's DAY EVERYONE.

Wondering how to GO GREEN without painting your face or wearing green from head-to-toe.  Concerned that you want to do more than just be "Irish for a Day". 

Well why don't you show your St. Patrick's Day spirit with something green on your plate!

Whether or not you love your Corned Beef and Cabbage, or Shepherd's Pie and can't break tradition just ADD something green to the plate. 

"What can I eat that's GREEN?" you may ask.  Here's a good rule of thumb.  You want your green foods to be as green as the shamrock on this page.  Some examples includes:
      Broccoli
      Green Beans
      Asparagus
      Brussels Sprouts
      Collard Greens
      Spinach
      Kale Greens
      Mustard Greens
      Okra
      Swiss Chard

Don't know how to cook or prepare some of these items?  Well there are great recipes online or you can ask friends.  Still not sure what to do with the foods above...check out our recipes in "Good and Good For You" section starting March 31st.
