I’ve always had a soft spot for Saint Patrick’s Day. We never really went crazy with celebrating it outside of one year when my great-grandma went all out and cooked a bunch of Irish food but since I’ve got Irish heritage, I always felt like I was a part of history when Saint Patrick’s Day came around.

I want to pass that on to my children a bit. Of course, there’s hundreds of recipes out there that you can make to celebrate March 17th but not all of them are very healthy.

Just the amount of green dye that is used in most Saint Paddy’s Day recipes is pretty crazy! So I gathered all my blog friends together and they gave me so many amazing and healthy recipes for this holiday!

Some of these recipes, are Saint Patrick’s Day related because they are actual Irish dishes but others meet the Saint Patty’s requirements simply because they are green (naturally!)
