Green Foods For St. Patrick's Day

A list of 30 healthy and green foods for St. Patrick's Day (most with no food color required)

Making green meals is one of the traditions in my home, from green kiwi/strawberry smoothies at breakfast, to green lunches sent to school with kiddos, to a plate of green food next to a corned beef brisket at dinner so I have gathered all of the healthy greens I could think into one spot, please feel free to add to my list in the comments.

I don't think I have anything green to add, but it all sounds so tasty and healthy. I love green veggies :)

Such great ideas!
Thought of a few more too:

Key Lime Pie, limes in general, carrot greens (yes you can eat them), and green pasta (sometimes you can find a pasta mix made with vegetables that include green noodles).
