Stool, green in color, may result from eating a green, leafy vegetables or when some supplements or vitamins are taken, even if they're not green in color.
If the stool is in form of diarrhea, it is normal to have green color, because the food has passed through the intestines very quickly and there wasn't enough time for intestinal enzymes to change bile's green color into brown.
