Passover is GOOD for Your Waistline!
9 Nisan, 5773
Jews around the world are preparing Passover, which begins Monday night. We're scouring our homes, offices, vehicles and pockets of leavened foods and their crumbs.
We're also focusing on the miracles of the matza (and the manna!) that fed us once we were liberated from slavery. We're also focused on The One Who Saved us ;^ D
The Egyptian slavery was one thing. Emotional/mental health slavery is another. All of humanity needs to be free to be mentally and physically healthy. Here are a few FYIs about that:
SEDER and Rebirth
This time of year is a good time to mind your dining habits. I highly recommend these cookbooks for making your Passover meals delicious, nutritious, and slimming:
The No-Potato Passover Cookbook
The Garden of Spices: Recipes for Life
Make a shopping list of the foods you need, sharpen your kitchen knives and get to work. You'll enjoy the holiday more without feeling bloated, constipated or bored with your food.
I bet you'll even develop a new twinkle in your eyes as you fill yourself with the simple pleasure of good and good-for-you food.
If you're gluten-intolerant or allergic to wheat-based matza, buy spelt matza or Kestenbaum's oat matza (I enjoy both). They should be available in major grocery stores within Jewish communities.
I happen to be friends with Rabbi Ephraim Kestenbaum, the man who created those oat matzas. He saved his daughter's life with them. It's quite a story that will be included in a biography coming out in the foreseeable future.
Yes, Passover can be GOOD for your waistline and overall health!
