Get More Greens In Your Life This St Patty’s Day

Get More Greens In Your Life This St Patty’s Day

Your mother was right when she told you to eat your veggies because green vegetables are loaded with nutrients that can lower your risk of cancer, heart disease, and obesity. They are great for weight loss assistance because of the vitamins, minerals, and low calorie content. But how do you get them in your diet if you don’t want to eat salads all the time?

 

Sometimes you have to trick yourself into eating more greens. By “trick yourself,” we mean that you have to sneak them into dishes and mask their flavor. Blending them into your smoothies is one of the easiest ways to do that. You can use lettuce, cabbage, or collard leaves as taco shells, sauté some spinach and mix it in with mashed potatoes, or even make some stir-fry with green beans, broccoli, zucchini, leeks, cabbage, and more!

 

If you are trying to be a healthier person and incorporate vegan or vegetarian recipes into your life, it is very easy to do so on St. Patrick’s Day. The Irish have been celebrating the anniversary of the death of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, since the fifth century. There’s no reason we should put an end to tradition, which that is why we are giving you some of our favorite green recipes to make a feast. Try them out and let us know how you like them!
