ALL of the recipes on www.HealthyFamilyHealthyYou.com are plant-based and suitable for the 9 days, during which observant Jews do not eat meat or drink wine. If you do regularly eat meat, it’s your lucky year! There are really only five nights of a non-meat dinner you need to figure out (and I’m giving you 6 meal ideas). The rest of the meals are on Shabbat when you can eat meat.
Purim is the usual type of Jewish holiday… “They tried to kill us. It didn’t work. Let’s eat!” But there are several mitzvot (commandments) and minhagim (customs) very particular to Purim. These make plenty of work for parents and plenty of fun for kids. I’m giving you easy ideas for a few of the requirements and customs: HAMANTASCHEN, MISHLOACH MANOT and your PURIM SEUDAH.
I’m often better at giving the advice of Keeping It Simple, than actually following it (just ask my Mom!)! I just can’t resist trying new recipes, CONSTANTLY!
However, I recently succeeded, with terrific results. Here’s what happened… and how to keep it simple for a healthy, plant-based Thanksgiving.
This is a great week for simple suppers, especially for those who usually eat meat but are abstaining right now until after Tisha B’av (The Jewish holiday commemorating the destruction of the Temples in Jerusalem.)
Here is your Monday to Wednesday plan, because, let’s be honest, you’re probably ordering pizza Thursday night and eating meat for Shabbat.
If you don’t have my cookbook, and therefore have not tried my Sushi Salad, now is the time! It is super easy and a real crowd pleaser.
Rainbow 7 Layer Salad
It’s a Midwest kind of Memorial Day!
Here are the 7 layers for your healthy vegan seven layer salad. Creamy and delicious!
These are all great family recipes, whether you celebrate Purim, are vegan, vegetarian or not. Who doesn’t want a warm, one-pot meal at the end of the day? …Especially when your kids are tugging on your sleeve to get to shul for Megillah and the all-important costume contest!
