Everyone needs a healthy alternative to standard restaurant Chinese food, whether you eat it for Xmas or just for fun whenever you feel like it. Take a look back at this blog post for the easiest and healthiest Chinese meal you’ll ever eat! Don’t worry, it’s very tasty too! Best of all, you won’t feel gross after you eat it. No MSG side effects. No rumbling stomach or deep thirst keeping you up at night.
Last year Black Friday bled into Thanksgiving Day and this year it essentially began on Monday of Thanksgiving week. The following week we can look forward to Cyber Monday and Giving Tuesday. That is the American order. “After you feel guilty for your gluttony, please give to charity.” But in my world, Jewish values tell me that giving charity (tzedekah) comes way before buying tchotchkes. Whatever faith you are or are not, I’m confident that my readers agree with me.
I’m happy to be coming up for air at the end of an entire month of holidays! In the meantime, even with Succot over, it’s never too late to enjoy a warm, healthy and hearty bowl of soup.
With the start of the secular holiday season upon us, now is a great time to read my Jewish Food Experience article about healthy eating during the holidays. Be sure to also click on the accompanying Mama Soup recipe. Thanks, Mom!
We don’t usually think about fresh, raw vegetable recipes for the fall…but we all need hearty and healthy fall salads for clean eating, even after the air turns crisp. Here are two, recently published by The Israel Forever Foundation’s Cooking Israel site.
I hope everyone is enjoying their holiday season! As promised, here are the two pages of my salad/appetizer recipes recently published in The Jewish Press. This is clean eating at its best!
Is it possible to feel lighter after a 2-day holiday? Yes! It is. Here’s how I did it.
Another year, another garden report! I can’t quite declare success. Our tomato plants went crazy for some reason and kind of took over everything else. See here for the pizza we made using squash (as the crust) from the farmer’s market. It was the yellowest squash I have ever seen.
Welcome back! I hope you enjoyed your summer and are not letting the start of the school year stress you out too much. See my previous camp and school lunch ideas and stay tuned for more! Also coming up soon, new product reviews and Jewish holiday menus and recipes.
So, here is the great news!
