A Kosher cookbook that presents a healthy style of eating.

BACKGROUND Start the Diet Now Advertisement

If you ever thought that eating kosher would do a disservice to your waistline, think again. Susie Fishbein, author of six books on kosher eating, has now lightened up some favorite kosher signature dishes in addition to a host of other meals, sides and desserts in Kosher by Design Lightens Up: Fabulous food for a Healthier Lifestyle.

In case you were wondering, kosher food is food that meets certain Jewish dietary laws. These laws are pretty extensive but in sum, here is what it means for food to be kosher: fish and meat cannot be served together, milk and meat cannot be served together, processed food must be prepared in front of a rabbi, poultry and meat must be slaughtered under specific guidelines, pork and rabbit are not kosher meats, and kosher fish must have fins and removable scales. There are additional rules that apply to how utensils and cooking dishes are used within a kosher kitchen.

In the book, Kosher by Design Lightens Up, you’ll find 145 new recipes, tons of colorful photos and creative entertaining ideas. Kosher by Design Lightens Up also includes practical information on how to implement healthier alternatives to your diet by using whole grains, oils, sweeteners, super foods, kitchen gadgets and how to grocery shop smartly. Recipes vary in their complexity from simple everyday cooking to gourmet dishes. And the dishes are not just limited to Jewish fare. Fishbein creates kosher takes on ethnic dishes from Japanese Udon noodle soup to Mexican mini quiches.

Kosher by Design Lightens Up is not a diet cookbook about deprivation, but rather it is about blending an array of foods of varying colors, flavors, textures and nutrients that will please your palate and your need to feel great and be healthy.
