BALTIMORE - You'll need more than the luck of the Irish to keep the calorie count low this Saint Patrick's Day, but it can be done.
Just make a few changes to your traditional Saint Patrick's Day favorites. Here are some ways to do it.
- Experts suggest swapping out your buttery potatoes or potato skins for some red potatoes mixed with olive oil and cabbage.
- Also, make your Irish soda bread with whole-grain flour instead of white flour for added vitamins and minerals.
- And instead of green beer, try a green smoothie. You can blend green grapes, green applies, non-fat vanilla yogurt and kale.
- And, of course, don't drink and drive. Tipsy Taxi is offering free rides to help.
