Go Green this St. Patrick's Day!

No, I'm not talking about green beer (what's on your mind?)! Fruits and veggies have long been praised for their cancer-fighting properties, but now there's even more evidence pointing to the health benefits of going entirely vegetarian. According to a new study published in the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, vegetarians were shown to have a lower incidence of most types of cancers when compared to their meat-eating counterparts.

But just because it's St. Patrick's day doesn't mean you should only think green. For the greatest health benefits, think variety and go for all kinds of bright colours, like the colours of the rainbow! With all this talk of green and rainbows, I just can't help but think of golden beer. Treat yourself to a pint tonight in celebration of all things Irish, I know I will! To your health - Cheers!
