As some of you may know, right now is the Jewish holiday of Passover which lasts one week. Everyone practices the holiday a little differently, but one of the main customs is to avoid eating leavened foods, such as bread, and depending on your traditions, legumes (such as peanuts, beans and peas), and rice. Instead, we eat unleavened bread known as Matzah (if you’re not familiar with what that is, think GIANT CRACKER). It can be a little tricky to stay healthy during this holiday because many people opt for an ‘all-things-matzah’ diet – matzah pizza, matzah lasagna, matzah french toast, ETC. I think the holiday sounds a lot more daunting than it really is, because there’s actually so many healthy options to choose from! I made this list for a client, so thought I would turn this into a blog post for anyone who might find it helpful this time of year. Hope it helps! Xx Jord
