When you think about green foods there’s probably a list of individual foods, or fruits & veggies that come to mind, such as: 

  • Spinach
  • Lettuce
  • Kale
  • Green grapes
  • Avocado
  • Asparagus
  • Green beans
  • Kiwi
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Pistachios
  • Broccoli
  • Peppers
  • Cucumber

  • Arugula
  • Leafy greens
  • Basil & other herbs
  • Bok choy
  • Cabbage

Sometimes these foods will turn a recipe green and other times it’ll completely change color depending on what other foods it’s mixed with, especially when it comes to salads.

So, let me share some of my favorite naturally green colored foods.

Use these for St. Patricks Day or when teaching kids about colors, for themed food nights, or to simply enjoy!
