Easy Tips and Fun Menu Ideas for a Healthier St. Patrick’s Day
St. Patrick’s Day has long been one of the most fun and festive food holidays. Although the type of “green” foods traditionally associated with St. Patrick’s Day aren’t known for being particularly healthy, (who hasn’t enjoyed a pint, or three, of green beer, or a McDonald’s signature Shamrock Shake?) you don’t have to pass on enjoying delicious foods and beverages in order to stick to a healthy lifestyle diet. Thanks to the fact that many favorite vegetables are naturally green, and by making a few simple substitutions in some traditional food and beverage favorites, it can be easy to “go green” and eat healthy this St. Patrick’s Day without sacrificing any of the festivity.
