St. Patrick’s Day is upon us! Whether you like this holiday for it’s traditional corned beef, the green beer, or Shamrock shakes, you’ve gotta admit that the food around this holiday is delicious. My goal with each holiday is to find ways to enjoy the food while still making healthy choices. Holidays don’t have to be full of sugar and simple carbs. They can be full of fresh produce and proteins that are just as satisfying. I wanted to share the recipes I found and hopefully my research will save you some time this St. Patrick’s Day too!
