eat in color: green

it’s our eat-in-color series (finding ways to enjoy naturally colorful foods within our day) – and our task is to find a way to have a green food at every meal throughout the day.  have you been following our g.r.o.p.y* series? (please see our previous eat-in-color posts on orangeredpurple/blue and yellow foods)

so here’s our green food recipes and meal options, (and best part – they are all eligible for #MeatlessMonday.  😉  ) I could totally have an all-green day.  what about you, what are your favorite ways to eat colorful green foods?
