When it comes to dinner I like to keep things quick, healthy and simple by sticking with a protein and lots of veggies. I’m a big fan of any and all vegetables but green veggies are known to be the BEST in terms of nutrients so naturally I’m always looking for new recipes that have a good protein source and piles of green vegetables.
So when I was thinking about ways to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day here on EBF I decided to do a round-up of lean and green dinner recipes to give us all some ideas. <— I seriously considered posting a healthy Shamrock Shake, but Catherine beat me to it (with an adorable vid). Lean and green recipes it is!
I’ve included a few of my own recipes here plus a variety of recipes from sites I love across the web. I’m hoping this post will give you inspiration to include more green veggies in your dinner routine and some fun new blogs to check out as well!
