St. Patrick's Day is all about the green, but in the wrong kind of way. Pints and pints of Guinness only make us feel green (and so does all the corned beef and cabbage, now that you mention it). And though you might drink green beer out at a bar, it only loads your body with booze and artificial food coloring. So how do you celebrate this holiday in a healthy way?
It's pretty obvious. Mother Nature gave us the best answer -- greens. Leafy greens, green vegetables and green fruits will all make your body function a whole lot better than it will on your typical St. Paddy's Day fare, so load up on the recipes below and superpower yourself through the day. (And keep them handy all year round!)
We know this isn't exactly the most Irish way to celebrate, but we're considering it a new alternative. (In other words, we're sick of the hangovers.)
