With Saint Patty's Day just about here I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share a healthier way to enjoy it's traditional cuisine.

Probably not too high calorie with all the cabbage.

Have a smaller portion of meat, skip the potatoes and load up on cabbage, turnips, and carrots! The dish is just boiled so you don't have to worry about added fat from the cooking method.

Where I live, we have a few local butchers who corn their own meats. You can choose a leaner cut from them. But seriously, isn't the fat in cornbeef the best part? For St. Patty's day, I'm not even going to worry about it. I'm running a 5K in the morning and I'll be eating those calories burned!

I'm pretty sure I'm going to steal your approach. Just a good workout and then I'll enjoy my dinner.

Someone who is busier than you is working out right now.
There will come a day when you can no longer do this. Today is not that day.

Thanks Erika. I was leaning towards another crock pot recipe but I'll probably use this instead. I love Skinny Taste. One of my favorite sites!
