15 Healthy Green Recipes for Spring

15 Healthy Green Recipes for Spring

Spring weather! It’s finally here. I’m jumping ahead of the calendar by a few days, but my nose tells me (achoo) that spring has arrived. I’m celebrating by sharing fifteen of my favorite green recipes. You’ll find hearty green salads, of course, some fun green pasta dishes, soup and more.

I’m still buzzing after a great weekend, so I’m going to keep this short. Just wanted to share a few housekeeping things before I go:

1. I’m a dummy. I spent hours redesigning my email subscription and forgot to tell you all about it! Click here to subscribe to my new posts by email and see what I’m talking about.

2. Have I told you lately how much I appreciate your feedback and comments? I gathered so much inspiration from your go-to vegetarian recipes that you shared with me in the comments last week. You guys are brilliant!

3. Are you following along on Pinterest? I have a board for spring recipes, plus some new boards for salads and more.

4. Ali wrote about our experience working remotely for a month in Austin over here. We’re already scheming up a return trip.
