St. Patrick’s Day Menu

With spring around the corner (hopefully) and St. Patrick’s day on our front step, the color green comes to mind. Green veggies contain high amounts of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants. Incorporating these items into your menu can be fun and easy. These recipes have been transformed from their original versions to contain more green!

 

Green Smoothie

There is no better way to stimulate your senses in the morning then a bright green smoothie for breakfast. This recipe is jam packed with dark leafy greens, but tastes light and sweet. Get the full recipe here.

 

Green Tea Muffins

Green tea induces detoxifying enzymes in the body. Help your body to start the spring season with a bang by snacking on these Green Tea Muffins. Bake these muffins at home with our recipe!

 

Green Onion Cakes

Green onion cakes are Edmonton’s unofficial dish of choice. So here is a twist on the Edmonton favourite. We’ve added wheat germ to the flour to increase the fibre content and baked them instead of frying them. Satisfy your inner Edmontonian with our nutritious recipe.

 

Green Veggie Lasagna

Try this twist on regular old lasagna and pump up the nutrition and flavour in the process. Bright green veggies like those in this recipe are sources of lutein, which is important for eye health.

 

Key Lime Pie

Even though they are green, most key lime pie recipes are not the most health conscious recipes. Try this slightly adjusted recipe for dessert this year. You will be pleasantly surprised at the similar taste profile, without all of the fat and sugar and the added bonus of protein from the Greek yogurt.
