Have a fun and festive holiday with 15 Naturally Green Healthy St. Patrick’s Day recipes!

15 Naturally Green Healthy St. Patricks Day Recipes from Running in a Skirt

Hello! Hello!

St. Patrick’s Day is this Friday and I have a pretty incredible healthy St. Patrick’s day menu planned for you.  I’ve got everything from your chartreuse morning smoothie, to a fresh jade salad lunch to a delightfully olive pesto pasta dinner covered!  You can even have your pick of snacks and side dishes.   Now there are a lot of recipes with green on Running in a Skirt but these are some of the ones that are overwhelmingly…. well… emeraldy :-).

Now these aren’t necessarily authentic Irish dishes or ones that use cheesy fake green dye.  My picks are healthy, natural ways to eat green all day long… which is a good idea on any day… but especially on St. Patrick’s Day!  Follow this like you would a rainbow and you are sure to eat with the luck of the Irish.

So grab a Guinness (this food will totally balance that out! lol!) and get eating all of my favorite green foods!

    Look at all of those gorgeously green eats! I’m getting to this late, I missed this before St. Patrick’s Day. Fortunately, I love all things green, so these will be great anytime =)

    I want ALL of these! I love the idea of making pesto for St. Patricks Day. I haven’t made it in awhile and love how there are so many uses for it. Pasta and pesto has to be one of my favs though!

    I’d be all over that pesto. But as I really only cook on Mondays (yep!) I’ll probably skip green things this year or make myself a nice green salad.

    Lots of nice green suggestions for St Patrick’s Day.
    My dad’s birthday is on St Patrick’s Day. We will
    all call him on Friday and then we will celebrate
    his birthday at my folks on Saturday.

  10. Oh man…so many good green recipes here! I pinned the smoothie recipe–you know I”m all about those these days!

      Wow thank you! I hardly think I’m an expert, but I try really hard. Thank you so much though!

    I really LOVE the natural green color; God’s colors in His plants that He has made are the best! They also taste the best too.
