What to do on Shavuot When You’re Lactose Intolerant

Friday, June 3rd, 2011

It’s always a challenge to look past the dairy piece of Shavuot especially if you have an intolerance to the food group. But Rachael explains what you can do to celebrate the holiday without eating dairy food.


Three Cheers for the Dairy on Shavuot!

Wednesday, May 12th, 2010

Can’t wait for Shavuot…it’s the only time I don’t feel guilty!

There is nothing out there that can replace my love for everything dairy. If I could, my diet would only consist of yogurts, sour creams, cottage cheeses, never mind ANY cheeses and of course my favorite, a glass of cold 3.25% milk!!! How can I forget to mention about the infamous slice or two of cheesecake and cheese filled blinzes drizzled with honey…

Unfortunately, I am sure you will all agree that a dairy only diet will eventually result in having some ‘unwanted guests’ staying on your waist and hips…

That is why I don’t feel guilty indulging (obviously in moderation) in everything dairy during the holiday of Shavuot. This is the only time I can allow myself to enjoy without the concern of ‘unwanted guests’ overstaying their welcome!

Chag Sameach Everyone!!!
