Jewish Recipes --> Food and Health --> A recipe for the rest of your Life. May it be blessed, long and happy.

We were not created to eat, but eat to live.

In memory of my parents

May 4, 1975, my father died of a heart attack at the age of 45
He had high blood pressure - 45 is too young.

Dec 3, 2008, my mother passed away -- too young --  age 76eating
Lung cancer caused by years of cigarette smoking

Just before Hanukkah 2008, my wife Chavah, was diagnosed with an aggressive form of breast cancer - she caught it early which saved her life. Since discovering the cancer and taking the necessary steps to stop its spread we have learned a great deal and come a longs ways toward a more healthy lifestyle.  We have lost weight by following a restricted calorie diet of high fat and low carbohydrates and increasing our exercise, mainly through walking. We would like to share some of our knowledge with you and hope this will convince others they too can change their lives.

Our web site objective is to give the reader choices, ideas and information: Jewish recipes are anything Jews eat, as well as, making sure the recipes on this web site are kosher.  There are more than one kind of vegetables giving a rich variety to choose.  We will also explore issues like: How much meat should I have in my diet, should I limit salt and sugar, how many calories are too many?

Did you know?

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that every year about 76 million people in the United States become ill from harmful bacteria in food; of these, about 5,000 die.

Consult Your Doctor:


  • Are jalapeño and serrano peppers being investigated as part of this outbreak?
  • Salmonella: What can I do to prevent salmonellosis?, What is salmonellosis?, What sort of germ is Salmonella?
  • Salmonella: How can Salmonella infections be treated?, Are there long term consequences to a Salmonella infection?, How do people catch Salmonella?, What can a person do to prevent this illness?
  • Salmonella: How common is salmonellosis?, What else can be done to prevent salmonellosis?, What is the government doing about salmonellosis?, How can I learn more about this and other public health problems?
Cutting back on the lattés, avoiding the vending machines and exercising regularly can pay off -- up to $2,489 a year. Oh, and you might live longer.

Some Ideas on how to lose weight:

  • Slow down when you eat ... set your fork down in between bites.
  • Drink plenty of water.
  • I need to lose some weight, and I have come to realize that there is a difference between what you think you eat and what you actually did.
  • For every extra 250 calories you must walk 1/4 to one mile. Or you can do a mitzvah that day of 1/4 hour to 1/2 hour to help someone.  If you are watching TV, get up and do something during the commercials.
Lead researcher Kathleen Melanson had 30 normal-weight college-age women consume a large bowl of pasta. They were asked to eat the food quickly. On a second occasion they were asked to eat the same meal - but to really take their time.

The Results:

  • Eating quickly - consumed 646 calories in 9 minutes.
  • Eating slowly  - consumed 579 calories in 29 minutes.

Food for the Soul

Just as there are foods that are good for the body and foods that are harmful, so are there foods that nourish the inner person -- the soul -- and foods that harm it.

Without food we can not live... We all have heard the famous line, "Man does not live by bread alone...."

Choose Foods:
  • The zucchini fruit is low in calories (approximately 15 food calories per 100 g fresh zucchini) and contains useful amounts of folate (24 mcg/100 g), potassium (280 mg/100 g) and vitamin A (384 IU [115 mcg]/100 g. 1/2 cup of zucchini also contains 19% of the recommended amount of manganese.
Those who cope with feelings with emotional eating tend to choose foods that are high in fat, protein and carbohydrates or "comfort foods." Some common comfort foods include ice cream, chocolate, pizza, macaroni and cheese and fast food to name a few. These components work chemically in the brain to temporarily improve one’s mood.
