You all know I was away for Pesach, in Tiberias with Eddie's Kosher Travel. Well this Pesach hotel was exactly what I imagine a kosher cruise to be like. (Since I've never been I can't say for sure, only what I've heard.) We were totally and completely surrounded by great food all day, every day. I haven't made an appointment with my scale since I returned and really should just excuse myself now and go on a liquid diet. But alas, since that is neither practical nor the healthiest of solutions, I am lightening up my food over the next few weeks so I can actually eat together with my family with these four light recipes for Summer.
Pictured above is a delicious and bright Tropical Slaw. Beautiful and incredible on its own, this tropical slaw is also superb on fish or chicken.
This fat-free Chilled Cucumber Melon Summer Soup is my new obsession. Play around with the flavors and colors by making two batches and swapping the honeydew for cantaloupe in the second.
A sprinkle of crumbled feta adds a creamy twist to this Middle Eastern Tabouli Feta Salad and will help fill you up.
Every time my mom-in-law goes on a “diet” (nasty little 4 letter word!) she stocks up on bulgur to make tabouli salad. So I followed suit; keeping up the family traditions is important to me.
A light bright bite of this classic remake for Low Fat Cheesecake will make you feel like you haven’t sacrificed a thing.
I favor sugar substitutes like Truvia or Splenda when I am looking to cut calories. If you prefer agave, another sweetener, or even sugar—use them to taste in these recipes.
