Jackie Weighs In…on the eatin’ of the green.

Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

I’m planning on inaugurating a new St. Patrick’s Day tradition today – instead of wearing green, it’s a day of eating green! This should be relatively easy, since I can think of hundreds of green foods. My plan involves green in every meal and snack:

Started the day with a Fresh Spinach omelet – YUM! Followed this up with a snack of fresh kiwi (with some blueberries and strawberries). By lunch it was time for a dark green salad (arugula, romaine, watercress) topped with avocado, tomato and crumbled turkey bacon (nitrate free, of course), topped with lowfat Green Goddess dressing. Afternoon snack of green pistachios (just an ounce). Dinner will be Pesto Mahi Mahi with garden green beans and parslied potatoes. A simple cabbage salad on the side, and for dessert Mint Chocolate Chip (lite) ice cream.

Before bed – add in a cup of green tea!
