This is a very special time of the year for those of the Jewish faith. It is a time of reflection and renewal; a joyous time to gather with family and close friends. It can also be very challenging to stick to a healthy eating plan as many of the traditional Jewish foods are high in fat, salt and sugar. Here are a few tips to help you deal with these challenges:
A) Make sure that the holiday meal contains lots of fresh veggies - if you are preparing the meal yourself, steam lots of colorful, seasonal vegetables and use fresh herbs for a zesty taste treat!
If you are asked to bring a dish to another location, offer to bring the veggies!
B) Fresh local fruits make for wonderful dessert ideas... experiment with lots of different fruits for a fruit salad and celebrate all the natural sweetness Mother Nature has to offer!
C) Drink plenty of water and go for a nice walk after the meal... enjoy the last days of Summer as we transition into Autumn~
~Have a Sweet and Good New Year~
