Even though they are fairly inexpensive and easy to make, mussels can add a fancy flare to a dish!

Whether you love mussels, or are new to them, I hope you find the following recipe delicious. My husband, Jared, created it for our family and we even gave it to our 1 and 3 year olds! (If you aren’t feeling adventurous enough to try mussels, please see the options below. This recipe has a lot of flexibility to accommodate your personal preferences.)

Healthy Shamrock Shake

It's March!shamrock shake

St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! Many people are anticipating a sweet, green, holiday tradition that is less than healthy. Yes, I’m talking about the Shamrock Shake!

This seasonal drink has been around since the 1970’s. Most people recognize that this shake is loaded with sugar and calories, but did you know that it actually consists of 35 ingredients? It will come as no surprise that many of these ingredients are not good for our health.
