Today, it seems that there is a wee bit o’the Irish in most of us. Parties and get-togethers are based around traditional Irish and Irish-American dishes – think corned beef and cabbage. Why not try something different this year? How about building a healthy “green” meal to celebrate the holiday.
Take your choice from green beans, artichokes, asparagus, broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, celery, endive, cucumbers, arugula, broccoflower, leafy greens, lettuce, okra, peas, broccoli rabe, green pepper, snow peas, zucchini, and avocado.
These veggies provide your body with tons of essential vitamins and potassium without packing on the calories. Top it off with a glass of green tea with fresh mint and you’re all set to enjoy the holiday.
