Green Snacks for St. Pat's, Plus a Menu Plan

Green Grape Crostini with Ricotta

Last year in anticipation of St. Patrick's Day, we made our pudding green by mixing it with candy.  Since I am trying to phase out artificial colors from our food, I am opting for a natural approach this year.  I am finding that there are still ways to eat green without resorting to food dye.  Green grapes, pesto, peas, avocados and other wholesome ingredients provide healthy options for making food that looks green and tastes great.

You can find a slideshow with more green food ideas at Associated Content.

This Week's Menu Plan:

  • Chicken Fajitas
  • Waffles
  • Chili (at school)
  • Venison Burgers
Do you plan to eat anything green this week 
to celebrate the Emerald Isle?
