With St. Paddy’s Day just around the corner, many of us will find ourselves enjoying a meal and beverage at a pub. Classic pub food is far from healthy, but especially beware of the standard fish and chips – this dish contains an ocean’s worth of calories, fat and sodium. While Shepherd’s Pie is still a heavy dish, it offers up some veggies, cuts your calories by over half and has about a third of the fat.
