COUNTDOWN TO PASSOVER: MORE TIPS

March 25, 2012

I am taking a break from my Passover cleaning and menu planning to share another 10 tips with you in Part 2 of my Countdown to Passover: 30 Tips in 30 Days

 TIP # 20:  You’ll go CRAZY over Passover the Healthy Way’s Craisin Almond Macaroon recipe!  It’s not only delicious, it’s a calorie saver!  Ordinary coconut macaroons contain about 280 calories and 10 grams of saturated fat.  Craisin Almond Macaroons are 115 calories and 4 grams of “healthy” fat.

 

TIP # 19:  Keep the kids busy while you cook.  Encourage creativity by having them make their very own Seder Place Mat!  Check out this link to learn how!

TIP # 18:  Adjust your Passover recipes by reducing the ingredients high in sodium a little at a time.  Don’t be fooled by recipes without table salt that do call for instant soups, bouillon cubes, or condiments which are high in sodium!  Experiment with herbs and spices and get the benefit of antioxidants many provide.

 

TIP # 17:  Buy in bulk and share with a friend.  Food items bought in bulk are usually less expensive and give a better “bang for your buck”.  Ask supermarket managers if they will give discounts for items bought in bulk and split the cost and food items with a friend or neighbor!

 

TIP # 16:  Another great craft for the kids…have them make and decorate their very own wine goblet for the 4 cups of wine at the Seder!  Here’s how…

TIP # 15:  Eggplant cutlets are a great vegetarian option for a Passover meal!  Replace bread crumbs with matzoh meal to make a delicious dish that even meat lovers will enjoy!

 

TIP #14:  Traditional Passover recipes are laden with oil which increases the calories in each serving.  There are 9 calories per gram of fat, compared to 4 calories per gram of protein or carbohydrate.  Cut back on the oil, and cut back on the calories.  Substitute the oil with equal amounts of applesauce!  Or, cut the amount of oil in the recipe by 1/3 and replace that third with applesauce or pureed prunes.  You will get the same moist flavor while saving on the amount of fat and calories.

 

TIP # 13:  Make your holiday guests feel at home with a Passover greeting card created by your kids.  Check out this link for another great craft for the kids.

TIP # 12:  Cooking ahead is crucial if you have the space.  While there are some recipes that have to be made on Passover, there are many that can be made ahead of time and frozen.  This will give you more time to focus on those specific dishes that must be made fresh.

 

TIP # 11:  Do you make your matzoh balls from an instant mix?  If yes, you must try Passover the Healthy Way’s FLAVORFUL Matzoh Balls and SAVE about 500 milligrams of sodium.  They are easy to make, full of flavor and healthier.  What more can you ask for?  Get your copy of Passover the Healthy Way today at www.passoverthehealthyway.com.
