34 Recipes to Have a Successful Low Carb or Keto St. Patrick’s Day; Many of your favorite Irish Favorites that will fit your Low Carb or Keto Lifestyle
St. Patrick’s Day is right around the corner! It is an enjoyable holiday even for those of us who are not Irish.
Shamrocks, corned beef, cabbage, all things green, rainbows, leprechauns, parades, and good luck charms are fun for everyone.
Writing this post made me want to learn more about the day.
Did you know that St. Patrick was not Irish?
He was born in Roman Britain and kidnapped by the Irish when he was 16 years old. He escaped a few years later and went back to Ireland to convert them to Christianity.
St. Patrick used the 3 leafed shamrock to explain the Holy Trinity (Father, Son and Holy Spirit).
The original color of St. Patrick’s Day was blue. It was only in the 19th century that green became the color of the day. I just can’t picture blue on March 17th!
March 17th is the date of St. Patrick’s death, not his birth.
The first St. Patrick’s Day parade was not even held in Ireland. It was held in Boston in 1737 (and the first official one in New York in 1766).

When GREEN is the theme, it is a great chance to get in your veggies!
Potatoes are a major part of St Patrick’s Day celebrations but not included in our low carb or Keto diet. These are very good substitutions though.
You can also try using radishes or turnips in your favorite dishes instead of potatoes.
Soups and Stews
Rolls and Biscuits
These are pictured in our meal. Truthfully, I wish I had just made my Low Carb Garlic Cheese Biscuits above. These were “OK”. They are a popular recipe so many must like them but we were not crazy about them. (Just giving our honest review)
