When I think of healthy desserts, the first thing that comes to mind is fruit. Yes, fruit is filled with sugar, but it’s all natural. Plus, fruit is filled with plenty of other vitamins that are really good for you. If you are going to satisfy your sweet tooth, this is the way to do it! I have included recipes for all levels of baking experience.

In this week’s parsha, we read the story of Balaam, who is asked by Balak to curse the Israelis.  Despite his intentions to vilify them, Balaam’s words become blessings. Balaam’s story makes clear that God gave us free will and we have the choice to give blessings or curses in the world.

Rabbi Bradley Shavit Artson, in his book, The Everyday Torah, summarizes God speaking with Balaam as “’The choice is yours, human. You are free to decide for yourself. ‘ In the words of the Talmud, ‘A person is led the way s/he wishes to go.’” (p. 263).

It seems everyone has gone Paleo lately.  The latest in the trendy diet world, Paleo, short for paleolithic, refers to the prehistoric cave man time period and the diet is based on foods that our ancient ancestors would have likely eaten.  The diet is full of meat, nuts and berries and absent of foods they wouldn’t have access to, like dairy and anything processed.

The Paleo diet at its core provides a model for holistic eating.  With whole, nutrient dense foods as the primary focus as well as the elimination of gluten, dairy, soy and many foods that cause GI distress.  Some guidelines for the diet are conflicting, like whether potatoes and/or sweet potatoes are allowed.  Overall, in it’s simplest form, the Paleo diet avoids grains, gluten, legumes, dairy, corn, soy and sugar and allows grass fed meat, pastured chicken and eggs, wild caught fish, and most organic fruits and vegetables.  The diet prefers animal fats and coconut fat over most vegetable oils and also encourages nuts and seeds.

I am told there are many people out there that serve the same cholent every week, every shabbat!!  There is no regard to outside temperate and there is no interest for something different.  Is it really true?

I understand the desire for an easy to prepare meal that fills everyone up and can stay warm all of Shabbat without overheating the kitchen, but I can’t understand two things.

Think Outside The Kugel, Plus A Healthy Potato...

Whether it’s for a dish for your shabbos table or a side at a smorgasbord, potato recipes have been feeding our families for generations. Certain recipes are passed down to preserve memories and tradition, but with the addition of lots of oil or margarine, some of those dishes cast aside the importance of preserving health.

As parents, we ideally want to serve up foods that magically combine nutritious and delicious in every bite. Even for a nutritionist, that’s a challenging feat, but I’m happy to say that potatoes can have a place on your plate without a helping of guilt!

It sounds cliché but it’s true: breakfast is the most important meal of the day.

All night, our bodies are in a natural starvation mode and begin to breakdown our muscle for protein and create its own sugar. We want to take our bodies out of that mode as early as possible after we wake-up, typically within the first hour.
