Eat– for Good Health

You don’t have to be Irish to enjoy corned beef, cabbage, carrots, a few little potatoes, and other vegetables.  The trick to have tender corned beef is boiling/simmering for at least four hours.  Yessiree, boil the livin daylights out of it.  Here’s when your crockpot comes in handy!  I save the seasoning packet that comes with corned beef and use it after I’ve drained fatty water off the corned beef.    This gets rid of a lot of cholesterol, too!  After draining, I place the corned beef back (in a large Dutch oven on the stove top) with the seasoning and an assortment of vegetables, cooking until tender.

Here are some other healthy “green” ideas:  Take a hike in the spring weather.  Enjoy green tea.  Eat all the verdant veggies you can get your hands on– spinach, broccoli, green beans, lettuce.  Remember that finding happiness is the best pot of gold.
