MEMPHIS, TN (WMC) - The American Heart Association is taking advantage of St. Patrick's Day to encourage everyone to begin eating healthy.

As a result, they offering some 'green' motivation for a 'Go Green' campaign on St. Patrick's Day by encouraging Memphians to make one smart substitution for breakfast, lunch, dinner or snack time. If you do, there may be some green goods waiting for you.

Once you make a green healthy substitution, share a picture of your healthy choice on social media using the hashtag #MemEatsHealthy. Everyone who posts using the hashtag on St. Patrick's Day, Thursday, March 17, will be entered to win a $200 gift card to the Fresh Market to help them get started on eating healthy all year round.
