St. Patrick’s day is a funny thing here in the states. It’s the one time each year that people seek out green food and drinks, and they aren’t the healthy variety either. Everything from green beer to green sausage is part of the American version of this holiday.
And what’s funnier, is that this holiday is a very different experience in Ireland. At least that is what I have been told by people who live there. They don’t do all the “crazy American green stuff” like we do, if they celebrate it at all. And corn beef and cabbage is not something the Irish immediately seek out for a celebration.
But any way you look at it, it’s here to stay in the States, and green food is getting more and more “creative” on this particular holiday. But instead of filling your body with all that green chemical food coloring in garbage food, how about eating some clean eating, green foods that are actually beneficial due to their green coloring! Foods like spinach, avocado and broccoli!
And at least you’ll be safe from those pesky little pinching leprechauns at meal time! So go ahead. Wear your green on the inside too!!
