There are so many excellent ways to celebrate St. Patrick's Day, wherever you are, and whether you're Irish or not. You can go the whiskey-swigging, Guinness-gulping route. You can get authentic, with a lovely loaf of soda bread or a hearty bowl of Colcannon. Or you can go green.

Dress yourself in your best green togs and find inspiration in peas, avocados, spinach, and seaweed. Mix up a boozy green drink to kick off the celebrations. Whip up a few green dips to eat while watching the parades. Gather your friends and family together for an entirely green dinner. Then, when you wake up green around the gills from a little too much Jameson, stir up a clean green soup or smoothie. Sláinte, a toast to your health in drinking and eating!
