Corned Beef and Cabbage and St. Patrick's Day

March 17th is St. Patrick's Day and many will be enjoying a dinner of highly seasoned beef called "corned beef", simmered for a few hours in a large pot. Then they will be adding some carrots, maybe some onions, but definitely some potatoes; then finally, some cabbage toward the end, and cooking all of it just long enough to cook all of the ingredients through. And what's so serious about that? It is a day when caution is tossed to the wind in our home...we indulge in a wonderful feast of corned beef and cabbage which is a high sodium meal each year. We enjoy it with some Irish Soda Bread and an Irish beer.

Yes, I'm a Nutritionist, here to tell you, that unless your health care provider strictly forbids it, you'll be just fine if you do all things in moderation...and this once a year tradition is definitely done in moderation. Oh, my mouth is watering...cant wait to feast!
