holiday-recipes

How do you break the Yom Kippur fast? Even though your young children may not join you in the fast, they can enjoy the meal that breaks it. If you’re not sure what to add to your holiday meal menu, check out the simple options that everyone in your family will enjoy.

Remember—after fasting your stomach may need some special TLC. Avoid heavy, fatty foods as part of your first meal. Even though you may want to eat everything in the fridge, hold back and go slowly at first. Select a variety of small bites or small plates to accommodate your post-fast needs and the rest of the family’s appetite.

Breakfast Salad

A salad for breakfast? Even though cereal, pancakes and waffles are early morning meal staples, you may want something a bit more refreshing. Chop your fave veggies, rinse arugula and other types of lettuce and gather together a few toppings (such as dried fruit or nuts) before the holiday. Mix everything together in the morning for a fresh break fast the addition.

Smoked Salmon Pinwheels

Start with a whole wheat burrito or other flatbread wrap. Spread a layer of plain or flavored cream cheese on the wrap. Add thinly sliced smoked salmon, sliced cucumbers, spinach or other thin veggies. Roll the wrap and slice it into one-inch pinwheels.

Avocado Toast

There’s a reason this hispter treat has gained major fame. The delish breakfast or lunch option is easy to create and customize. Dress up whole grain toast with sliced or mashed avocado, a scrambled egg, cheese and vegetables.
