St. Patrick’s Day: Best and Worst Green Foods

I love brussels sprouts!

Some of my friends think this makes me weird, but I embrace my weirdness. I guess I am just a fan of anything in the cabbage family.

Since green is the color we associate with St. Patrick’s Day, I thought it might be a fun idea to find out how our members and readers feel about the green foods in their lives. Green vegetables are chock full of good stuff, like antioxidants, Vitamins B  and C, and beta-carotene. Even knowing these facts, many folks still don’t like anything green on their dinner plates.

So, what are your most favorite and least favorite green foods? Would you try them a different way if challenged to do so? Have you tried a green veggie you disliked as a child and found you like it now?

Tell us about it!
