Hi friends! In case you’re in need of some festive foods for the weekend, here are 6 Healthy and Naturally Green Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day. These easy recipes are clean eating and colored with natural foods, like spinach and matcha. Who needs food coloring when there are so many great options from Mother Earth? Okay, that was a little hippie, but…also true!
As you guys know, I’m a big fan of eating as clean and close to the source as possible. That means avoiding artificial anything whenever possible, including fake food colors.
These 6 Healthy Green Recipes for St. Patrick’s Day are all naturally green with plant-based food colors that are also good for you! Take that, artificial food color products! Hiyah!
