St. Patrick’s Day, or rather St. Paddy's Day, is coming up quickly on March 17, and that means it’s time to go green — by eating green foods.

The holiday, renowned for giving university students a reason to hit the bars no matter which day of the week it falls upon, is a celebration of the most famous patron saint of Ireland, Saint Patrick.

If you’re planning to entertain this St. Patrick’s Day, this video has your menu all figured out. Even though none of these foods are traditional Irish meals, they are all green and that’s what counts.

But don't worry if things at the grocery store aren't quite in your colour scheme. If all else fails, green food dye will solve everything. It’s just up to you if you want to try those green cupcakes.

If none of these green foods suit your fancy, you can still feel a little bit Irish by pouring yourself the perfect pint of Guinness, or just celebrating with a variety of beer options.
