Healthy Passover Recipes
This time of year, the requests for Pesach dishes come in a mile a minute.
So I’m sharing my gluten free Seder menu here to give you a peek at the Passover meals we have each year.
Gluten Allergy? No Passover Problem!
I created this gluten free menu full of my favorite classic Passover food after I was diagnosed with celiac disease.
It’s also perfect for our friends who suffer from a gluten allergy.
Just so you know, I follow a keto-ish diet so these are all low carb Passover recipes as well.

Passover the Feast of Unleavened Bread
Now, moving on from food to some other Pesach items. Wondering why Passover is referred to as the feast of unleavened bread?
When we were enslaved in Egypt, there was not enough time to let bread rise before fleeing through the desert and crossing the Red Sea.
Because of this when we celebrate Passover we refrain from eating leavened bread for seven days, commemorating our freedom.
When Does Passover Start?
Although the dates change annually, Passover is always seven days long and starts on the 15th day of the month of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar. This date typically falls in March or April.
When Does Passover End
The 22nd day of the month of Nissan on the Hebrew calendar is always the last day of Passover.
Do Jewish People Celebrate Easter
I’m often asked, do Jewish people celebrate Easter? That’s a bit tricky. The point of Easter is to celebrate Christ and Jews do not believe that the Messiah has come yet, so the two holidays are not necessarily compatible.
But, I do confess, my Mother might have snuck us a bit of Easter candy here and there some years, as we lived on the West Coast and were drowning in Christian holidays, with few Jews in our town.
Happy Passover Images
I love looking at old Passover images of items like the Seder plate above that my husband made when he was 8 years old –we still use it today.
I’m always snapping great photos like that one and sharing them over on my Instagram.
What’s Your Favorite Part of Passover?
When I was diagnosed with celiac disease I knew I’d have to create Passover classics from my low carb and keto recipes. Healthy and hearty, just the way Bubby made them, only better.
