Passahfest steht vor der Tür und wie die meisten Urlaub, der Fokus sehr stark auf Lebensmittel. Passahfest hat viele Lebensmittel Einschränkungen und wenn Sie oben auf, dass vegan sind, es kann geradezu eine Herausforderung sein. Auf der Suche nach Rezepten, die sowohl vegan und angemessen für den jüdischen Feiertagen kann schwierig sein, sind; the resources are few and not greatly organized or accessible. But there is a web site that can change all that for you.
Jewish Food Hero was launched in November by Kenden Alfond, a woman who is trying to improve people’s health while also offering resources and inspiration for creating healthy and meaningful Jewish holidays.
Kenden is originally from Maine but now lives in Cambodia with her family. She has spent over a decade working on humanitarian, post-conflict and development issues with the United Nations and several NGOs. Kenden has a certificate in plant-based nutrition from Cornell University.
Jewish Food Hero is Kenden’s contribution to the Jewish community’s efforts to put healthier food on our tables. The goal is to “help people eat with intention, create meaningful experiences and find beauty in the every day.” Jewish Food Hero can help you on Jewish holidays to be organized, inspired and able to serve healthy meals that follow the traditions. This is so important since these family gatherings at the holidays serve to connect us to our religion and spirituality, to inspire children and future generations to be involved and connected and create precious memories of family and traditions.
Jewish Food Hero offers exclusive done-for-you menus that offer plant-based adaptations of traditional holiday foods. All the menus are downloadable PDFs – available individually or as a bundled package.
The holidays available are: Chanukka, Pesach, Shavuot, Tu B’shvat, Lag BaOmer and Purim.
Each holiday menu has five recipes – an appetizer, main dish, two sides and a dessert. It also includes a shopping list, gluten-free options, every day kosher pareve ingredients, and one recipe that can be prepared by children with adult supervision.
Then menus can be used in their entirety for your holiday meal or pick a few dishes to combine with your own recipes. Or maybe they will just inspire you. The menus are beautifully-designed PDFs that can be viewed on your computer, iPad, mobile devices so they are accessible at home or on the go.
I have the Pesach menu and I have to tell you, all the recipes included look delicious. Each recipe tells you what ingredients and tools you will need, detailed instructions and beautiful full-color photos. There is also a handy shopping list you can print out to take to the store with you, all organized by ingredient categories. I don’t want to give away the menu but there is a really creative take on tzimmes that I think everyone will love.
Die Jewish Food Hero web site also has free downloadable resources such as a Holiday Energetic Focus Worksheet, a Healthy Replacement Guide for Cooking and Baking, a Jewish Holiday Calendar and a recipe for Chocolate Cake!
There are also educational resources, information about holidays and Kenden’s blog. You can also purchase any or all of the Jewish Food Hero menus as a gift.
A portion of the menu sales is donated to the Joint Distribution Committee (JDC), the world’s leading Jewish humanitarian assistance organization. The organization works in more than 70 countries and Israel to alleviate hunger and hardship, and provides support to disaster victims.
