Although St. Patrick’s Day isn’t necessarily the toughest holiday to navigate, healthy-eating and -living wise, I still (along with my pooch, Latte) wanted to take a moment to wish you lots of luck today (and everyday).
Should you be yearning for a little green beer today, you can try making your own (perhaps even with light or non-alcoholic beer) with these simple instructions for making green beer.
And for some healthier takes on some favorite St. Patrick’s Day meals and foods, check out these Healthy St. Patrick’s Day Recipes and Menus (featuring better-for-you recipe makeovers for Irish Lamb Stew, Whole-Wheat Irish Soda Bread, Mini Shepherd’s Pies and more.
And if you do decide to treat yourself today, do it with a grateful heart and open mind. Remember that one meal won’t hurt our health – especially if we combine it with healthier choices for other meals on the same day and mix in a little exercise (or a brisk walk) before or after said meal.
Oh, and you might want to wear a little green today to avoid being pinched!
