Your Healthy Meal Plan for St. Patrick’s Day

St. Patty’s Day is mind-blowingly overbrimming with green stuff, but not all green meals on the plate are safe and nutritious. The fattening, sugary, high-calorie, and artificially-colored foods are absolutely unhealthy. If you are looking to eat healthy without sacrificing the color and taste, I have created a special green meal plan for you to try out on St. Patrick’s Day. All these green recipes are healthy and graciously delicious.

1 Breakfast

The first thing you put in your body as soon as you wake up plays a crucial role in how you feel and look throughout the day. One of the healthiest ways to start your day with is definitely oatmeal, but are you into eating green oats? I suggest you start your St. Patty’s Day with a yummy, nutrient-packed smoothie or a green juice – if you are spring detoxing your body.

2 Lunch

Are you always tempted to visit the office vending machine even after you have your healthy salad? That’s because your lunch meal is not as powerful as it should be. On St. Patrick’s Day, it may be harder to avoid the temptations and overcome your cravings. Fear not, though. The following lunch ideas will make your tummy happy.
