Green Food Guaranteed to Make You Feel Good

While you may have had the best of intentions, it’s possible you may not have stuck to that “less brownies” resolution you made back in January. Since spring is marching closer—bringing us one step closer to bikini season—and St. Patrick’s Day is soon, it only seems appropriate to get healthy with good-for-ya green foods!

Healthy eating doesn’t always have to be such a formal affair. KraftRecipes.com’s Chicken and Avocado Wraps are perfect for a laid-back lunch. To make it even more low-cal, try substituting ranch for your favorite low-fat dressing!

A fresh, filling meal in 30 minutes? Yes, please! Fish fans will enjoy this delicious, nutritious meal. FoodNetwork.com’s Tilapia with Green Beans recipe is a delightful departure from your ol’, unhealthy green bean casserole.

Remember Mom telling you to eat your spinach? With this dish, you may not be so reluctant. AllRecipes.com’s Pasta with Spinach Pesto Sauce is a low-fat, low-sodium alternative to run-of-the-mill spaghetti. The recipe calls for bacon bits to add crunch and flavor.

If you’re not the biggest fan of plain salad, why not add some Southwestern flava? KraftRecipes.com’s recipe for Southwest-Style Steak Salad beefs up your classic salad with steak, corn on the cob and tortilla chips. Want a little extra heat? Add salsa to your mix.

When you’re short on time but still want to make a healthy food choice, vegetables are always a safe bet. FoodNetwork.com’s Celery Gratin is a 10-minute dish that can either serve as the entrée or a great side dish.
