Ok, friends, it’s Passover time.
Or let’s just call it what it is. 8 days of the year when Jews all over the world pretty much turn Paleo in homage to our ancestors who couldn’t bake bread as they fled the desert. (I won’t go into the details… but I do know them. It wasn’t me who climbed out the window in Jewish Studies, I promise).
If you’ve ever eaten matzah, you know that you’ll probably never eat it again.
I’d like to make this Pesach easier on your digestive system than ever before, so I’m giving you my naturopath-approved, totally clean-eating top meal ideas for the next 8 days.
(Totally joking about the matzah. It’s kind of edible. Sometimes.)
- Your best bet for breaky is eggs and veggies. Try my anytime omelet wrap. It’s so easy and uses leftover veggies really well.
- Another good option is fruit such as berries or a pear drizzled in almond butter and topped with coconut shavings.
- Natural yogurt with nuts and berries.
- My fave protein smoothie.
- Dinner leftovers of meat and veggies.
- A salad of some sort, with lots of veggies and protein such as eggs, salmon, tuna, chicken, or leftover meat from dinner and some sweet potato or pumpkin (or quinoa, if you’re being a radical Jew. It’s technically a seed, so some say it’s Passover-friendly).
- Leftover protein and veggies from dinner.
- A chicken salad.
- A tuna salad.
- A halloumi and boiled egg salad.
- A salmon and avocado salad.
- In other words, make friends with salad.
- Protein and veggies, such as spicy salmon with balsamic-cinnamon roasted veggies.
- Cauliflower, chia, and thyme protein pancakes (perfect for breaky, lunch, or dinner).
- Herb and nut-crusted salmon with green veggies.
- Cauliflower pizza with spicy meatballs (don’t worry, it doesn’t rise, so no sweat, Rabbi).
- Cleansing green soup with halloumi cubes.
- Snapper with greens and pesto.
- Eggplant, mushroom, zucchini and ricotta bake.
Wishing you well over the next 8 days. You got this!
