It's Easy Being Green

As St. Patrick's Day approaches, celebrate with more than just green attire -- add some bright color and key nutrients into your meals by incorporating green fruits and vegetables. Check out three greens-forward, easy to make recipes: Avocado Hummus, Baked Cod with Chermoula Sauce, and a refreshing Green Smoothie. Let's dive in!

Avocado Hummus

This easy-to-make dip is not only delicious, but also packed with nutritional benefits. Avocados are rich in magnesium, a mineral crucial for over 300 biochemical reactions in the body, supporting muscle and nerve function, blood sugar control, and bone health. The soluble fiber found in both avocados and chickpeas helps with digestion, regulates blood sugar levels, and promotes a feeling of fullness, making avocado hummus a satisfying and nutritious snack or addition to any meal. Pair with some crisp sliced vegetables like bell peppers, cucumbers, celery, and snap peas to add even more green to the dish!

Vitamin C supports immune function and collagen production, while polyphenols are potent antioxidants that help protect our cells from damage. Incorporating smoothies into your daily diet is a simple yet effective way to nourish your body with all the key nutrients you need.
