Corned beef, cabbage and green beer. How did those leprechauns stay so trim?

If you’re Irish, or inclined to celebrate the shamrock this week, here are some tips to survive the holiday without reenacting the Potato Famine.

Here’s a recipe for Vegan Irish Soda Bread.

And you know what else is green? Veggies.

Celebrate the shamrock with some green tea instead of green beer.
