Favorite Irish Meals
You may have heard about The Great Irish Famine but do you know why many Irish meals are based on the potato? It became a major food source because of its abundant nutrition energy produced per unit of crop. While potatoes sometimes get a bad rap, they are actually excellent sources of vitamins and minerals. Other Irish food information you may want to educate yourself about includes the nutrition in classic dishes served like corned beef and cabbage or shepherd’s pie. Like the British food meal, an Irish breakfast is also large and offers many of the same ingredients but also includes staples like white pudding, a strong Irish tea, and Irish soda bread.
Is There Healthy Irish Food?
There may be a little Irish in all of us when St Patty’s Day comes around but unfortunately there’s not a whole lot of healthy Irish food in the repertoire. Stews are a popular Irish meal which can be made healthy if preparing with lean meat and lots of vegetables. However many of the commonly used meats such as corned beef, lamb, and sausage are the fattier cuts. In fact, potatoes might just be your best bet when it comes to nutrition density as long as there is no added fat, for example butter or cream mixed in with mashed potatoes. Cabbage also might seem innocuous but it’s all in the preparation. So next time you are eating Irish, arm yourself with our Irish nutrition information.
