St. Patrick's Day is something we love to celebrate, but the foods (especially the non traditional ones) associated with the day aren't typically the healthiest. We've put together a great list of healthy St. Patrick's Day snacks to help you celebrate the Luck of the Irish while keeping your diet in check.
Each of the snack recipes here are gluten-free, or are easily adapted, and of course there are no artificial colors lurking inside. Bonus, if you are on a special diet, many or all of these can work for you as well. The recipes are all either dairy and egg-free, or can easily be converted.
We hope that these help you enjoy your celebration and better health as well!
