 The Jewish Woman’s Guide to Maintaining Sanity On Passover

by: Alice Chera, CPCC, ACC

It was the battle cry of a weary Moses: “Let my people go!” It is the essence of Passover- freedom from oppression. So how is it, I wonder, as I stand in my kitchen sweating profusely over a frying pan in a cloud of Matzo meal after weeks of scrubbing my home from top to bottom, that the miracle of the Jews’ escape from Egypt thousands of years ago has turned into my very own 21rst century tale of bondage? What is it about the preparations for Passover that has me plotting year after year, my own escape to a desert like clime?

Now don’t get me wrong; Passover is a great holiday, as a child it was my favorite. But that was way before all the koshering, cooking, cleaning, checking, frying, baking, boiling, dipping and shopping was my responsibility. Back in those days, even my mother (an accomplished cook in her own right) didn’t host a Seder. Passover was a holiday so epic in scale that it was entrusted only to my grandmother, the silent and sturdy matriarch of our family. Peering into the kitchen to give her a kiss, there us kids would find her, clad in her housecoat, standing valiantly at the helm of the kitchen commandeering the stovetop and ovens with nary a complaint.

That said, it is no wonder the mere thought of Passover can strike terror into the heart of even the most seasoned cook and homemaker. Passover is the biggie. The Grand Poobah of all the holidays. For those of us who stay home for holidays, Passover can be a month-long brew of cooking and cleaning that requires efficiency, stamina and most of all, a good attitude.

So here are some tips to maintain your sanity and create your own freedom as you prepare for Passover this year:

  1. Start Early/ Pace Yourself:

Start early and start small, but the main thing is to just start. As the Nike slogan goes “Just Do It.” Procrastination leads to paralysis. If you give yourself enough time you can tackle the Passover prep with little or no stress. Organize one shelf of a closet or start with just one room each week and little by little things will get done

2. Get Clear/ Avoid Vagueness:

Sure the thought of preparing for Passover can be daunting but our fears loom larger when they are trapped inside our heads. Begin by making a list of all the things you need to do for the holiday. That means- make your menus and shopping lists and create an outline for cleaning so that your tasks are clearly laid out before you. Vagueness only breeds anxiety. Seeing your list on paper makes things more manageable. It shows you that there is a beginning and an end to what needs to be done. And as you begin to cross things off the list, it generates the momentum you need to keep taking actions in preparation for the holiday.

3. Practice Self Care:

The overwhelming workload and heightened stress in anticipation of Passover can turn many of us from human beings into “human doings.” Watch for burnout. Make sure you take breaks and check in with yourself to see what you need at any given moment. Are you hungry? Do you need a nap? Rest is critical. And don’t be afraid to ask for help. Delegating chores to your kids gives you a break and helps create for your children a sense of responsibility and accomplishment. Remember, no one wants to find mom face down in her plate once the Seder has begun. Not a pretty picture.

4. Adopt a Positive Perspective/ Change Your Thinking:

Most of us tend to look at certain situations through only one lens. If you have always viewed preparing for Passover as difficult and challenging, then odds are Passover will always be a stress- related holiday for you. If you can shift your perspective from “This is so much work, how will I ever get done?” to “I am learning to approach Passover with balance and ease” you might find yourself lunching with friends or having more space in your day as the holiday approaches.

5. Have Fun:

Alright, there are probably those of you who want to strangle me for this one. But truly you can get quite creative with your time at home and in the kitchen before Passover arrives. Why not listen to some of your favorite music while you are cleaning out your closets or frying up 10 lbs of chicken cutlets? How about trying on a different persona as you get ready for the holiday? Approaching the Passover prep from the stance of Ninja mom or Warrior Goddess can be energizing, productive and fun.

6. Cultivate and Attitude of Gratitude:

Remember ladies- whatever we focus on grows. If we choose to look at our preparations for Passover as overwhelming and draining it will be that much worse. But if you look at all the positive aspects of this holiday and the ways that Passover fills you that will be what grows in your heart. Think about the abundance that is around you that we sometimes take for granted. The privilege of experiencing the holiday surrounded by your family, enjoying a variety of delicious food on the table, the connection to our history and the freedom we as Jews have today. If you practice an attitude of gratitude you can never fail! Freedom will always be yours for the taking.

The Prettiest Modern Passover Seder Plates and Matzo Holders For Your Holiday Table

The Prettiest Modern Passover Seder Plates and Matzo Holders For Your Holiday Table

No Comments 18 March 2011

 

 

 

On Passover,  don’t forget that its the little glimmery holiday touches that add to the WOW factor of your table. One of my favorite  Judaica Designers is Laura Cowan who is constantly inspired by the natural beauty of  the land of Israel’s dreamy sea and sky. I recently contacted Laura to asks her about her inspirations, and I was immediately drawn into the way that she was able to translate her passion for outer space into her gorgeous moon inspired Seder Plate featured below.

 I was so impressed to hear that it has been featured  in Bon Appetit and  Epicurious.com. (If you’d really like to be impressed, scroll down to the bottom of the page to see all of the galleries and museum shops that her work is featured in.)

According to Laura, “I had an image of moon craters in my head but I didn’t know how I was going to make this design until I started experimenting with different types of metals, thickness of metal and shapes. Each time I would adjust the type or thickness of the metal, or the size and depth of the indentations until I got a look closest to what I had imagined. Although because the dips are made by hand, each one turns out slightly different.”

When I asked her about the materials that she used, she said  “I chose aluminum because the shapes came out softer than steel but more defined than on brass. Also I love the bright, white, mirror finish that doesn’t tarnish.To make sure it was user friendly I tried out several types of chrane to check that it didn’t leave a stain (it doesn’t!)”

 “Most of my work is about vertical lines – “weightless” rockets and cones shooting up into space.
I knew that for a matzah plate that these motifs wouldn’t work because a plate is of course, horizontal by nature.
I had designer’s block for months until I realized that every time I had been cycling on the “tayelet” (promenade) I had been gazing at the shapes of the yachts on the Mediterranean sea and the fishing boats in Old Jaffa’s harbor. So back in my studio, I curved pieces of highly polished steel to reflect the ocean waves and the sails that glide upon it.
I wanted the piece to look like a piece of sculpture so I used hidden magnets so that the waves can be placed anywhere on the plate.”
I want all of my hostesses to know that these Judaica pieces are even more gorgeous in person, and we recently sold them at a community event.
Dozens of  Laura’s seder plate and napkin holders were purchased so quickly that we had to re-order them on the spot. 
Many women bought two matzo holders so that they could place  each one on each end of their holiday tables.
I asked Laura if she could offer my Jewish  Hostess readers a discount, and if you order ASAP  you can take 5% off the price on the checkout page.
Your discount will be reflected on your credit card statement as her website does not discount out automatically.
Make sure you write 5%Jewish Hostess on the checkout page.

The Silver Wave Seder Plate beholds an elegant, classic yet modern design. Taking almost a year to complete, it incorporates four unique layers. The top layer consists of a silver platter and 6 silver dishes with three layers underneath for the three Seder matzos. Three matzot are needed so that when we break the middle matzah, we are still left with two whole ones to pronounce the “Hamotzi”. These layers represent the three components of the Jewish nation: Cohen, Levy and Israel. The flowing effect of the six dishes on the silver layer gives the illusion of them floating just above the surface.

Materials – Heavy Gauge Sterling Silver, Anodised Aluminum

Blintz Casserole Souffle- An Easy Addition to Your Passover Dairy Menu

No Comments 11 March 2011

 

Here is an easy dairy dish that I honestly can take no credit for. Its by Susie Fishbein on page 184 of  Passover by Design. I make it every year, and everyone loves it. From the grampas who used to eat blintzes for breakfast as a kid, to the kids who view it as a Passover treat, your casserole dish will be swept clean by all of the spoons digging in.

  • 12 frozen Tuv Taam cheese blintzes or 3 boxes of the flavor of your choice.
  • 6 large eggs
  • 4 tbsp butter melted
  • 1 1/2 cups of sour cream
  • 1/4 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 tsp vanilla
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • cinnamon /sugar

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a casserole dish. Arrange blintzes in a single layer. Beat all remaining ingredients and pour over blintzes. Sprinkle with cinnamon/sugar. Bake for 45 minutes until baked and golden. Enjoy!

DAY 1- Sugar Detox with Sari!

Day 1 on Sari’s Sugar Detox

Hello Sugar Detoxers,

I know everyone is so excited to get started!  Yesterday,  was preparation day, and everyone sent emails, questions, and had lots of anxiety.  Don’t worry- everyone comes out a winner on this challenge. even if your nervous and unsure, I guarantee you will absolutely feel different about the way you view sugar when this challenge is over.

Did you tell your family and friends? The beauty of this plan is that everyone in the family can be on the same page. I don’t promote pills, drops or anything that you will not be able to withstand for a lifetime. Isn’t that refreshing?

I know everyone is looking forward to feeling great, especially as the warm weather sets in and the feel of summer approaches, but first, I must dive back to the past for a few  moments.

The past:

I  know Passover is behind us, but since Jewish women, meals and holidays are all intertwined into one package, its important to keep our eating experience close to the the forefront of our lives  in order to achieve  maximum health and wellness. Jewish women know, that  when one holiday ends…another is sure to come real soon with big festive meals to try to sabotage our diets!!

With that in mind, I must devulge  a couple of dark secrets before we are able to have this Sugar Detox relationship. Firstly, you must know that I am not perfect, and it is not my intention for you to believe that I am, further more,  I don’t expect you to be perfect either. We all do our best under the circumstances that we are dealt with.

Lets go over my first imperfection- when it is holiday time and I am sharing a fabulous meal with beloved my friends and family, I  indulge on sweets that make me feel horrible!

Do I know and fully believe that sugar is toxic? Yes! Do I know and fully believe that I am going to gain unwanted pounds? Yes!…and that I’m going to feel groggy and lethargic the next day? You know my answer!  When I feel horrible- my passion for eating healthy gets validated. The trick is to keep those indulgences to a minimum.

Just a few years ago  I wasn’t able to last a day without eating sugar. I  slowly graduated to keeping sugar free for a week…then a month and so on. I remember feeling ecstatic when a Sugar Free lifestle became “normal” for me, as it will for you too! Even if you are eating sugar all day long- you can change!

As time went on, I kept a sugar free diet for longer and longer periods- but when holidays came along- I indulged again. Looking back on the Passover Feasts, it really wasn’t worth it. Was yours?  Chocolate Leaf cookies made out of potatoes are really gross, as are fake brownies,  but I ate it anyway. It must be the act of eating with my family around the table for hours that’s appealing to me, because the desserts really aren’t! Anyone with me on this?

My personal goals are to eat cleaner during the Jewish holidays. I just came up with a great idea- lets work on it together! I”m sure there are many Jewish Hostesses  who have the same pitfalls as me. Don’t be shy- share your views, we can all help each other.

Lets move on to the topic at hand!

What should you eat on Saris Detox 30 Day Challenge?

Before I spell it out for you- you are going to be so happy to know, that this is going to be the easiest food plan you will ever go on. Its a food plan that your whole family can enjoy. The best part is, everything is natural  and focuses on whole foods, which promotes healthy bodies and minds.

I like to break down the sugar detox into two groups, you can decide which group is best for you;

Group A: If you have never done a Sugar Detox before, feel addicted to sugar, or you simply eat sugar or refined white four or rice at most meals. If this is you, then your plan for this month should be simply  to avoid eating refined sugars and refined white flour. (check list from yesterdays post for names of sugars)

Group B: If you are used to eating a Sugar Free diet, then this can be your time to try to incorporate organic foods, add more raw veggies, and eat less meat.

Whichever group is for you- everyone can benefit from eating a Sugar Free diet.

Food List:

  • every  fruit
  • every vegetable
  • every grain, whole grain breads and cereals (try Ezekiel sprouted breads and cereals)
  • every bean
  • proteins- poultry, meat, fish, eggs, tofu, nuts, seeds
  • natural almond, cashew and peanut butter
  • oils-
  • dairy- Greek plain yogurt is best,
  • choose  organic milk or original almond milk
  • see… i told you it was easy! (there are lots of great recipes on this site)

What to avoid:

  • white flour breads, bagels, muffins,
  • processed cereals with added sugars
  • fruit juices
  • sodas
  • diet soda
  • splenda
  • equal
  • sweet and low
  • cookies, cake
  • ice cream
  • candy
  • well…..it wont always be easy….

Remember…we are not putting a morsel of Sugar or white flour in our mouths for 30 days starting today!

Use your Sugar Detox partner for support.

I will continually give you tips and guide you through this.Share your experience on The Jewish Hostess- we all want to know how you are doing!

I know you are going to feel  happier, healthier and more energetic. Don’t take my word for it- try it yourself!

A motto that I live by:  “ JUST SAY YES, AND THEN FIGURE IT OUT”( I learned this trait from my mother)

Here is a great recipe to get started!

Very-Berry Omelet and Avocado Toast

  1. whisk 1 organic egg and 2 egg whites together with a dash of cinnamon, nutmeg, and cloves. Stir in 1 cup mixed berries.
  2. Spray a saute’ pan with cooking spray. set heat to medium high. Pour egg mixture into pan, and cook, folding continuously, until eggs are no longer runny.
  3. Meanwhile, toast 1 slice of whole grain bread and spread 1/4 medium avocado, mashed.
  4. Garnish omelet with 3 chopped mint leaves and serve with toast.
