St. Patrick’s Day Recipe Roundup


I grew up in a home where holidays were heavily celebrated. My mom had bins upon bins of decorations for each of the occasions and always made them feel special. I remember waking up in the morning on Valentine’s day to the breakfast table being covered with heart confetti and a chocolate heart the size of my head waiting for each of us at our seat. For St. Patrick’s Day, I remember getting the treat of eating Lucky Charms for breakfast and a chocolate covered “potato” from See’s Candy that was sent in the mail by my Grandmother. For dinner, my mom would make Corned Beef and Cabbage with mashed potatoes. 

The love of holidays has definitely been passed down through the generations as my siblings and I crave a Thanksgiving feast in July, and are itching to turn Christmas music on come Halloween. While I chose to leave the holiday themed flags behind (mom doesn’t use them anymore thankfully either!), I still love to make festive foods, be it heart shaped pancakes or green eggs and ham. 

Here’s a recipe roundup of some fun grain-free GREEN foods from some of my fellow bloggers to aid in your St. Paddy’s Day Celebrations this year!

    Thanks for this! I’m pinning most of these to my Paleo Board now. I already pinned that chicken salad in avocado cups, but have yet to try it out. BTW, I made your paleo hollandaise sauce last night…so good!

    Hi Danielle,

    All gorgeous! Mouthwatering.

    My mom is the same way! She even had an Easter tree with like a million little spring ornaments. And don’t even get me started on Christmas, she seriously needs to rent out a storage unit. This certainly rubbed off on me though! I go crazy decorating for the Holidays – each one. And I love it. It’s sooo fun with kids. We have all kinds of St. Pattie’s Day decorations around now. We’re a bunch of (red-ish) heads in this family with a wee bit of Celtic heritage, so it’s fun.

    I’m putting together a post of what I’ll be eating on St. Pattie’s Day (all SCD). :-)

    Thanks for the link love and sharing my broccoli soup. Off to check out the other fab recipes.


    P.S. Finally getting some rain here! So nice.

    What a spectacular roundup of green foods! And thanks so much for including my soup here. :) I love the look of the chilled avocado soup, too (though mine would be minus the crabs). 😉 Happy St. Patrick’s Day!

      Oh I know I can’t wait to try that one. Thinking about drizzling a little sun dried tomato oil over top of the crab (I love crab!) :) and maybe a drizzle of cashew cream to make it even more rich. Ha! Thank you for your lovely soup recipe. It is so vibrant!
