I’ve been seeing a ton about artificial food dyes lately and it’s really got me thinking about what they mean for my family and me.

Don’t get me wrong – though it’s happening less and less, we do still indulge in food made with dyes. Heck, my last recipe, boozy shamrock shakes, is made with artificially-colored creme de menthe liqueur. Not much natural going on there.

But honestly? There really is no reason to break out the green food coloring this Saint Patrick’s Day. Mother nature – and these bloggers and magazines - have you well-covered with these bright, beautiful, and naturally green recipes.
