Saint Patrick’s Day is upon us! I love dressing up in green and eating corned beef and cabbage. There are many recipes that were handed down in my family, and I am happy to share them with you. Since we have kids we do like to keep it healthy, so we’ve come up with some meals and drinks for everyone to enjoy. We also pulled together some easy arts and crafts for the whole family on Saint Patrick’s Day!

Here are 5 healthy and fun Saint Patrick’s Day Activities for you and the family from all of us here at Leverage Ambition!

  1. Saint Patrick’s Day Breakfast

I don’t know about you but I absolutely love making and enjoying pancakes! Here is a great recipe we use for Green Paleo Pancakes that are healthy and festive for celebrating Saint Patrick’s Day.

2. Saint Patrick’s Day Lunch and Dinner

Saint Patrick’s Day is not complete without corned beef and cabbage. Here is a Paleo friendly Irish Saint Patrick’s Day Stew that your whole family will absolutely love. May sure you start making this earlier in the day so it’s ready before lunchtime. Shepherd’s Pie is always a fan favorite, so here is the Paleo recipe for Shepherd’s Paddy’s Day Pie that you and your family will enjoy. Grain free Irish Paleo Paddy’s Bread is a must have as well, and the holiday is not complete without it. You can make a corned beef sandwich or dip the bread in the stew and enjoy!

3. Saint Patrick’s Day Shake

There is no day like Saint Patrick’s Day and today is a today filled with green drinks! This specialty drink is paleo and vegan friendly, and it’s called a Shamrock Shake. The little will really love this one, especially after a nice meal.
