St. Patrick’s Day – 4 Tips for Making it a Healthy One

St. Patrick’s Day is a day when everyone is Irish, or at least they pretend to be. Regardless of the day of the week, this Irish Holiday falls on, it is always a day of celebration! This year why not make your celebration a little healthier and lighter than the typical stew, soda bread, and Shepard’s pie? Here are a few ways to have a little fun and keep it healthy.

1. St. Patrick’s Day Breakfast Ideas

They say breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not have green eggs for breakfast? Traditional Irish breakfast is very heavy and full of meat. Substitute traditional bacon with turkey bacon and cook it in the oven on a cooling rack and have a cookie sheet lined with tin foil beneath it to catch the grease.

We know the Irishmen love potatoes, and you can keep with that tradition, however, instead of frying the potatoes try tossing them lightly with olive oil and bake them instead. Then add a little salt and pepper to taste.

2. St. Patrick’s Day Lunch Ideas

Start with plenty of veggies and fruits that focuses on the color green. Who doesn’t love a good guacamole? Brussel sprouts baked with olive oil and balsamic vinegar is also a delicious and healthy side. You can do asparagus or green beans as their own side salad and can be served on their own hot or cold.

A green fruit salad is delicious and perfect for your St. Patty’s Day lunch. You can include things like kiwi, green grapes, green apples, pears, and honeydew, to name a few.

3. Green Drink Recipe

My favorite thing to make is a green smoothie. It is healthy and delicious and can serve as a dessert or light refreshment. Here is a simple recipe:

Ingredients:

Spinach

2 Bananas

2Pears,

2 Green Apples,

Ice (use your judgment on how slushy you like it)

Honey

Peel the banana and quarter the apples and pears removing the seeds but leave the skin on. Put all the ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

4. Dessert

What kind of St. Patrick’s Day is it without a dessert? For this part, I say go ahead and splurge. You were good and healthy with all the other food decisions, so enjoy some Irish potatoes or make whatever delicious dessert is in your arsenal and if it has green dye, an Irish flag or some green sprinkles it will be considered an Irish dessert that day!
