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.
Tomorrow night, Yom Kippur – and a day long fast – begins for many of my readers. What to eat before the fast and what to eat after for “break fast”?
If you don’t yet know what you’re eating before the fast I have the perfect recipe. A split pea lentil soup where all ingredients come from the pantry. Isn’t it exciting to have an easy recipe you can rely on and that you can keep all of the shelf-stable ingredients on hand?
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.
Shavuot starts this weekend. Here are three healthy vegan non-dairy recipes for the holiday that celebrates dairy. Vegan Lemon Berry Cheesecake Bites, Israeli Herb Salad, Smoky Sweet Potato Hummus

Welcome back to the insanity that is Passover (Pesach) preparation! Click the links below to see the Passover Preparation Printables I have for you. While these formats can absolutely be used for both everyday meal planning and every holiday planning, I use these specific excel spreadsheets for Passover. My ideas and resources can be used for any big meals-no need to be Jewish or observant.
