Color Your Saint Patrick’s Day the Healthy Way

With Saint Patrick’s Day only days away, the first things that come to mind are parades and people wearing, eating and drinking green. On St. Patrick’s Day, you’ll find bagels, cupcakes, cookies – even beer – all sporting a festive green color.

This year, we’ve done the research for you and found some great ideas for healthy (and colorful) platters to bring to your Saint Patrick’s Day celebration.

And remember, just because it’s a holiday, doesn’t mean you should skip the fruits and veggies. Fruits and vegetables are great sources of many vitamins, minerals and other natural substances that may help protect you from chronic diseases. Fill up on these nutritious options and enjoy the day!

Here are a few healthy recipes to inspire you in the kitchen and impress at the party:

Edamame Hummus – Full Recipe available at Gimme Some Oven.
Rainbow Veggie & Chip Platter – Photo compliments of Pinterest.
Spinach Quinoa Muffins – Full Recipe available at Six One Seven.
Irish Pizza – Make your own healthy pizza with a thin, whole wheat crust and top it with orange peppers, spinach and cauliflower.
