Happy St. Patrick’s Day!
Given how much sticking to a low-fat, plant-based diet over the past two months has reduced my breast pain (thank you Dr. Neal Barnard and Foods That Fight Pain), I’ve been really good about staying the course. That said, for me, St. Patrick’s Day always brings to mind a host of unhealthy traditions that—I confess—I miss.
Green beer and green cupcakes, for example, top the list!
So while green smoothies are great (in fact, I plan on starting my St. Patty’s Day with one), I’m finding myself having pangs for addictive green treats.
That said, I don’t want to go there! I’ve been doing too well to get back on the junky, emotional-eating roller coaster.
So I’m asking you, healthy plant-based diva (or dude), for suggestions: What’s your favorite healthy St. Patty’s Day treat?
Whether it’s traditional Irish fare with a vegan twist or your favorite green dish, tell me about it! Bonus points if you leave me a link to your recipe so I can try it out. Can’t wait to hear your suggestions!
