About the Recipe
GREEN is the colour of chlorophyll, of nature, of life! So celebrating St. Patty’s Day with greens is not only “festive” but great for your body!
Greens? What’s in it for me?
Clear skin and eyes- they help with liver function to pull toxins out of your body. Also, beneficial for strong nails and shiny healthy hair, a healthy immune system, increase in energy and help maintain strong teeth and bones and assist your body in dealing with stress. Sign me up!
To up your intake of greens on a daily basis challenge yourself to see how you can work them into every meal. Here are some suggestions:
- Add a handful of kale, spinach, Swiss chard or beet greens to your morning protein shake (you won’t even taste it but your cells will love you for it!)
- Sauté up some greens with your scrambled eggs
- Add some to your soup, stew, stir-fry or chili
- Have a raw salad a day to get those beneficial enzymes working for you!
My recipe in honour of this occasion includes not only ‘the green’ factor but the beloved Irish root vegetable: the spud! This combination is elevating the potato to healthier heights and providing a nourishing, satisfying meal in a bowl! Pair up this soup with a piece of grilled or baked fish, chicken, turkey or beef for a paleo meal or accompany with crumbled goat cheese or bacon for a heartier, decadent main course.
This recipe uses few ingredients and is fast and easy to prepare:
