If you wear a shirt that says “Feed me, I’m Irish” on March 17, then you need to read this post! Just like any other holiday, St. Patrick’s has its fair share of calorie- and fat-laden foods that everyone can’t wait to get their hands on. Namely, of course, is the beer. Pubs and bars will use more green food dye Monday than any other time of year. If you feel you must indulge in the green-tinted libations, opt for a light beer and save some calories.
As far as meals go, we’ve selected some Irish favorites that are “lucky” enough to have a healthy variation, either low-carb or low Weight Watchers Points.
