A new study from Thailand indicates that turmeric can help to reduce the chances of heart attacks in patients who have recently undergone heart bypass surgery. Bypass surgery can actually slightly damage the heart muscle as it is starved of blood flow at points throughout the procedure. This can lead to an increased risk of heart attack.

The pigment in turmeric – a bright yellow color – called curcumin, can help to reduce the risk of heart attack.

Mivasseret Zion, Israel (April 2, 2012) — The little girls stood on stage holding up a child’s painting of the Ten Commandments, quietly but confidently singing “Who Knows One,” the traditional Passover song about Jewish icons such as the Five Books of Moses, the Four Matriarchs, the Three Patriarchs, the two Tablets that Moses brought from Mount Sinai, and the Oneness of God.

It could have been a scene from any number of school Passover presentations, but these children were new immigrants to Israel from Ethiopia, demonstrating their Jewish knowledge for family members who, with them, are about to celebrate their first Passover in Israel.

I always thought that when one was depressed one turned to junk food for comfort. But according to a recent study in the Public Health Nutrition journal it is the other way around. The more junk food one  eats the more prone one is to depression. This study shows that there is an increased risk of depression in people who regularly consume junk foods – pizzas and burgers, doughnuts and croissants.

Researchers (from University of Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, and the University of Granada) also found that people who eat junk food regularly lead a more sedentary lifestyle, are likely to be smokers , and work over 45 hours a week.

The Man-O-Manischewitz Cook Off Winner Is….

On Wednesday, March 28, Manischewitz hosted its 6thannual Kosher Cook-Off at the JCC in Manhattan. Five competitors from around the United States were selected to compete in a challenge sponsored by Manischewitz and Maytag, with a $25,000 grand prize as well as a new kitchen furnished by Maytag. Cookbook authors, chefs, restaurateurs, high school students, and magazine editors were among the attendees who were able to both watch the contestants prepare their dishes in an hour, as well as eat versions of their recipes cooked earlier by Simply Divine, a catering company based out of NYC.

A diverse array of judges was selected to be the authoritative voice at the competition, among them Joy of Kosher’s own Jamie Geller and Food Network’s Claire Robinson. Robinson seemed thrilled to be a part of this competition, and shared a few of her recipes with media using Manischewitz’s new line of All-Natural broth flavors. In the Q & A session that followed, Robinson, who hosts a show on Food Network called 5 Ingredient Fix in which she creates recipes using 5 or fewer ingredients, explained that she believes that the best dishes feature quality and straightforward ingredients.  She shared her recipe for Short Ribs (which can even be made on Passover) and Chicken Pozole (which due to the corn cannot be made on Passover) using Manischewitz broth.

I love chocolate. In almost any form. It’s that one treat that makes you smile, that soothes a broken heart, that makes everything ok, that gives you energy when you need it. Recent studies show that those of us who regularly indulge our inner chocoholic are thinner than those who don’t.

There was a recent study undertaken by Beatrice Golomb (click to access the study), associate professor of medicine at the University of California in San Diego. People aged 20-85 were asked about their chocolate consumption habits, alongside questionnaires on other foods consumed. Their weight and heights were measured and their BMIs calculated.

How Much Food Do We Waste?

I try to clean out and organize my refrigerator at least once a week – I find that a) it keeps it clean, and b) it helps me remember what produce I have at the back of the fruit and veggie bins. However, sometimes time just runs away with me and when I get to cleaning it out or even reaching for an apple or tomato I realize that there are some interesting shapes and oozes within that drawer.

According to a recent study by the University of Arizona, over forty percent of food grown in the USA is not eaten. It’s partly due to non-harvested crops left to rot in the fields, but mostly due to consumer wastage. The study found that the average American family threw out nearly $600 worth of food a year – money that most people can ill afford to lose.
