I love the color green! Even though I eat a ton of green food on any normal day, a day that is associated with the color green just means making sure all my main meals include even more green!
And the best part is everything is natural. You will not find any artificial coloring in these foods! All the green comes from green vegetables, avocados, or spirulina! (Enter my code LWZ362 to save money on your first order!)
Some of the green things I ate on St. Patrick’s Day:
Snow peas, kale cooked in coconut oil and balsamic vinegar, and a buckwheat waffle used as the bread for a peanut butter and jelly sandwich!
I added 1 tsp spirulina to the waffle mixture to make it green, although it doesn’t look as green in the picture or as green as it was prior to cooking. (And of course compared to those bright green snow peas, even the kale doesn’t look as green!) I cut the waffle in half and added peanut butter and raspberry jelly for a PB&J sandwich! YUM!
Green Smoothie The recipe was inspired from here but I changed it up a little by using 1 apple, 1/2 pear, 1/4 avocado, 1/2 cup almond milk, handful of spinach, 1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder, 1 tsp maca powder, and a dash of cinnamon.
To make these gluten free, I used 1 cup Namaste Perfect Flour Blend and 1 cup gluten free oat flour. Everything else I kept the same but I had to bake them for 30 minutes.
And that’s it! I definitely got a lot of green in today! And everything was healthy and delicious!
Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
