Lucky Charms

Today's post is all about green stuff for St. Patty's Day.
A couple weeks ago I woke up early to compete in a St. Patrick's Day run but when I looked at the weather report, and saw the cold weather and hail, unfortunately I decided to skip it and was really bummed. So instead I made my Match Green Tea facial mask.

I'm on the social committee at work and created a fun celebration for St. Patrick's Day including door prizes, Irish Car Bomb Cupcakes, Guinness and green jelly beans! We had a meeting scheduled for St. Patty's day, but someone suggested we be "culturally sensitive" and not book a 4pm meeting on St. Patrick's Day out of respect for Irish Americans who may want to celebrate. lol Check out my St Patrick's themed nails from last year.

If you want a healthy green food snack idea try a pot of green with grapes, kiwi and honeydew or kiwi chia pudding.

Chobani yogurt just released their new limited edition flavor - green tea. I love green tea ice cream and this yogurt has a very subtle taste.


I made Green Overnight Oats.

Ingredients:
  • 1 large handful fresh spinach 
  • large ripe banana
  • 1.5 tbsp chia seeds (necessary for thickening)
  • 1 cup almond milk
  • 1/3 cup rolled oats

1. In a blender, blend together the spinach, banana, chia seeds, and almond milk until smooth.
2. In a bowl, add the oats and then pour the smoothie on top. Stir well until combined.
3. Place in fridge overnight. Give it a good stir in the morning and then enjoy it cold, straight from the fridge. Add desired toppings as you wish such coconut.
