    You know how people turn yellow when they eat too much squash? I wonder if the same thing could happen from eating too much green. Maybe I’ll find out today!

    Cute cute post. Love the pancakes. I still need to get me some coconut butter. It’s so expensive, but if I love it 1/2 as much as you do, it’ll be worth it, right?

  29. Aimee says:

    Happy St. Paddy’s Day, little leprechaun (however ya spell that!)

  30. radioactivegan says:

    Sophomore year of high school, my boyfriend dyed his arm green for st patty’s day with green koolaid. He couldn’t get it off for a few days … which makes me wonder why I was ever allowed to drink the stuff!

  31. Evan Thomas says:

    Mint is the best! It’s not incredibly green when it’s in foods, but it’s the flavor not presentation that matters with me :-)

  32. molly says:

    I loooove green foods: Green Monster smoothies, kale chips, green beans (best veggie ever!), jalapeno peppers, tomatillo salsa

  33. McKella says:

    Oh man, too many amazing green foods to name! I’m going to have to go with avocado, zucchini, and green grapes. Also love kiwi and spinach!
    Later, I’m making a green smoothie to celebrate!

  34. Baby pancakes! Too cute! My fave green food is probably kale. Or maybe collards. Or asparagus. Broccoli is good too. I really can’t choose one.

  35. Edamame! And fresh lettuce from the garden!

  36. Mama Pea says:

    I knew you’d have something cute up today! My favorite green food has to be a tie between spinach and broccoli. Oh, and who could forget PEAS!!!

  37. deisegirl says:

    zOMG that vest is er…intriguing!

    I love kale when it’s made into kale chips and slathered in ketchup *drool*. Have never actually eaten kale any other way come to think of it….

    I love green monsters too :)

  41. ilanalala says:

    Um, I’m ROFLing at Come On Eileen, because it’s such a drunken bar song. I like my pancakes on the burnt-ish side, too. Honey dew sorbet looks amazing. And YOU look amazing! That green jacket is the bomb!

  51. Katie says:

    Brussels sprouts and avocado are my favorite green foods. I started the day with a gigantic green smoothie and then a fat salad for lunch (iwth a side of kabocha fries). It’s been a very green-food day for me so far!

  52. BroccoliHut says:

    I’ve been eating green all day–details to come in tonight’s post:)
    We seem to share a favorite green veggie…but avocado comes in a close second.

  53. todayslady says:

    Right now my fave green food is zucchini. I can’t get enough of it!! I haven’t had any today though but I did have some honeydew :)

  54. Allison says:

    Pistachios and honeydew and broccoli and avocado… Man I wish I had some honeydew… And I really want to try to make something with key limes.

  58. McKella says:

    That coat you’re wearing is adorable!

  59. Sarah says:

    I’m definitely a broccoli girl as well. My boyfriend and I are not out celebrating for St. Patty’s day as we have too much homework to do and both agree it’s way too overhyped. However, he’s upstairs roasting us some broc as I type this so we’ll have a tasty green snack before bed. :) Yum!

  60. monica says:

  61. Adam says:

I love seeing people like you who seem like they live to the best of every day… Great pic, it’s makes my week when i see people as happy as you look and sound!

  62. Tiffany says:

    Hmm I love so many green foods: grapes, avocado, leafy greens (spinach and chard and kale–yum), honeydew, pistachios, fresh herbs…it’s so hard to choose a favorite!

    I agree, “Come On Eileen” really is a great workout song.

  63. Effie says:

    I found Agar agar!
    Totally irrelevant but I found out about it from your blog so I wanted to share it :)

  64. Kate says:

    Soooo many favorite green foods! Kale probably tops the list – my green smoothie today was pretty awesome though….spinach, honeydew, kiwi & banana – yum!

  65. Katie says:

    You look GORGEOUS!!! Simply stunning :-)

    Favorite green foods…hmm…I feel like I like EVERYTHING that’s green (except avocado…I know; i’m a freak of nature)….spinach, asparagus, sugarsnaps, broccoli, roasted-until-almost-all-black brussel sprouts, bok choy, crunchy iceberg, GREEN JUICE, mint ice cream, fresh pears…and I ONLY like bananas when they’re still underripe and green!

  66. Marianne says:
