The extent of my celebrating St. Patrick’s day is wearing a green t-shirt and cooking green food for my children.
I always try to cook healthy food for my children. I have to be sneaky about it though because if children suspect nutrients they automatically reject it.
Many people avoid food colorings for various health reasons, which could make celebrating St. Patrick’s day tricky, at least in the culinary department.
Here is a roundup of Blessed Beyond Crazy’s naturally green food.
