Don’t guzzle yucky green beer on this St. Patrick’s Day (seriously, why?). Instead, add a little more green love into your life one healthy meal at a time.
Being vegan, I eat green every day, so here’s a list of ideas to get you started!
Breakfast: the coconut matcha smoothie
Drinking matcha green tea powder is the best way to reap all the health benefits of green tea, and it also tastes delicious and earthy. This smoothie packs a punch with kale and creamy coconut! Get the recipe.
Breakfast: avocado on toast
Avocado is probably the most perfect food on earth! It’s a good thing to eat in the morning, too. You can slice it or just mash it right on the toast, drizzle with a little lime or lemon juice, and add salt and pepper to taste.
Lunch: edamame mash
This pretty green edamame mash is super fresh with mint, cilantro, and dill. You can pile it on a sandwich or put it on top of a hearty salad. Get the recipe exclusively on foodnetwork.ca.
Lunch: broccoli hemp tabbouleh
This is a great way to eat raw broccoli and inject lots of flavor into your meal. You can eat it on its own, in a big salad, or thrown into some tacos. Get the recipe.
Dinner: kale caesar salad
This is one of my favorite meals to make, and people often tell me this vegan caesar salad dressing is the best ever! runchy croutons and tempeh bacon make this bed of greens anything but ordinary. Get the recipe.
Dinner: green fettuccine
Dinner: gluten-free green bean casserole
This fun dish throws traditional casserole out the window! This is modern, delicious, and easy to make with the help of Le Grand’s vegan alfredo sauce. Plus it’s topped with crispy pesto onions. Get the recipe.
